Okay, I heard that this movie was really not funny or it wasn't as good as the original. After just seeing it all I can say is: WRONG ON BOTH COUNTS!

What a pleasant surprise! This film continues the further adventures of two racially stereotyped college students days shortly after their adventures from the first film. However due to Kal Penn's Kumar who just can't live without weed for one second, even though he and best pal John Cho's Harold are headed to Amsterdam where weed is legal in the first place, are caught with a bong on the plane that quickly gets mistaken for a bomb. Enter a racially moronic Federal officer (very funny) played by Rob Corddry, and the two get sent to the famous Guantanamo Bay....

..and by the title of the film alone you'd figure it was all about dealing with life in that prison, dont'cha? Wrong again. That title is misleading because this is another H&K road trip movie, because they're outta the Bay within the movie's first fifteen minutes. The rest of the movie involves getting back to America, encountering tons of stereotypes of race in different ways, saving Kumar's ex from a jerk, and a ton of other very humorous people and things along the way. Don't let the title fool you, there's alot more to this movie than a remake of "Let's Go To Prison".

Now I wasn't that huge of a fan of the first movie other than thinking it was okay at best, but Bay beats it by leaps and bounds. I must have laughed twenty to thirty good times watching it. And with the disc I choose the Unrated version and for a comedy, this one really, really pushes the limit on that term. There's some scenes in it I can't believe would be allowed on any Family Superstore's shelf.

This movie was far better than I expected it to be. The critics did not give it its just desserts largely because of its use of many of the same themes and gags from their first movie, i.e., a supposed lack of originality. I disagree. The sequel builds on and successfully uses what it created in the first movie. It is essentially about how bad things constantly happen to two well-meaning but chemically challenged bunglers, who despite their many flaws, are the good guys in the movie. It is underrated as a satire as it pokes fun at the sheer boneheadedness of those responsible for such moral and legal travesties as Gitmo, instead of simply portraying them as wrong. It is ultimately meant to be funny, not a political lesson, however, and it usually achieves its goal, although it does rely more on the use of nudity and graphic "shock and awe" techniques than the previous movie. I disagree with those characterizing it as advocating drug use. No one could see how these two goofballs screw up their lives (such as getting sent to Gitmo because of Kumar's hi-tech bong) and rationally want to emulate them, anymore than watching a trainwreck would make one want to be in one. It is satirical slapstick that is both funny and ultimately goodhearted as it drives home the inner goodness of its unlikely heroes after they find two strong women to help straighten-out the messes they have created of their lives!

I had this movie on dvd before and the original white castle movie on bluray, which is crystal clear. I got this in hopes of seeing both movies clearly. The picture is grainy, washed out and I can't tell a difference between this and the dvd. I wish I would've known, I could've saved $10 and kept the dvd I already had.

Ok so it is sort of a guy's movie. I, however, am female, but still LOVED this movie.

I really enjoyed the first one, and the second (Guantanamo) is far funnier. I rarely buy movies (since I don't usually watch them more than once) but I bought this one.

Not really for those with weak stomachs. Also, Neal Patrick Harris's cameo in this - incredibly enjoyable.

Rent it first, but seriously, if you liked the first one, you'll LOVE this one.

I <3 Kal Penn.

Harold and Kumar are two characters that my son, David, turned me onto by telling how funny their movies are and what a kick I w plain fun to would get out of them. These two are so funny and play off one another to perfection. One, Harold, plays the uptight and wants to color inside of the lines and Kumar will try anything and colors outside of the lines every chance he gets and does it with believing that the people around him are really not trying to harm them in any way. He gets surprised and Harold is right there to remind him of the errors of his ways. These two are the "Cheech and Chong" characters from the 80's and you laugh out loud at the situations that they get into trying to get out of another.
There are two other films with these two in them that are just as funny and even funnier. Great entertainment and just plain fun.

Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay (2008). New Line Cinema.
Directed and written by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg.

Originally Rated "R". This is the UNRATED version. Contains male and female frontal nudity (might be an apron), foul language, smoking, sexual content and gross humor.

It has been nearly 4 years we have waited for this sequel to Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle (Extreme Unrated Edition) (2004). It was actually filmed in January to March 2007. It was originally meant to be a straight-to-DVD release, however they changed their minds and released it in the movie theaters April 25, 2008. Thank goodness.
The great comedic chemistry between Kal Penn and John Cho returns in "Harold & Kumar Escape to Guantanamo Bay". Also returning are Paula Garces as "Marie", David Krumholtz, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Christopher Meloni, Neil Patrick Harris, Errol Sitahal.
The writers of the first film, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg have written and directed this second film.
This movie begins on the same day where the first movie ended. Since Harold (John Cho) has finally spoken and kissed the young woman he had been fantasizing about, but was too closed-up to speak to her before, he needs to see her again, however, she is on her way to Amsterdam, Netherlands for 10 days.
Kumar (Kal Penn) rescheduled his job interview and has booked a flight for both of them to Amsterdam so Harold can find Maria (Paula Garces).
When do these guys sleep?
At the airport, Kal sees an old girlfriend, Vanessa (Danneel Harris) who is getting married.
