Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (2008)

Gentleman, start your engines! It’s going to be a bumpy fuckin’ ride!

— Neil Patrick Harris

The latter part of my double feature in Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay. The movie takes place the next day after the events of the last movie. Spoilers ahead. Beware.

Harold and Maria are together but she had to go to Amsterdam for work. It is perfect for Harold and Kumar because marijuana is legal there.

On the way to the airport, the duo meets Kumar’s ex-girlfriend, Vanessa (Danneel Harris) with her new fiancee, Colton Graham (Eric Winter).

Kumar is determined to win her back. On the airplane, Kumar smuggles some weed on the plane and pulls out a makeshift bong that looks like a bomb.

The duo is arrested and thrown in Guantanamo Bay.

I understand that the movie is trying to point of humorous finger at the attitude American has in a post-9/11 world, but it is so offensive to minorities, Southern people, gays, and women.

The movie is awful. The only saving grace was Neil Patrick Harris and his rainbow unicorn when he was tripping on mushrooms. NPH FTW!

Why was this movie made? How could Cho and Penn agree to be in this movie?

Judgment: Avoid this movie like the bubonic plague.

Rating: *1/2
