Harold & Kumar Escape from
Guantanamo Bay

The highly popular and “cult” classic Harold & Kumar return in another “drug” induced comedy that although may not be as entertaining as the original, still has enough twists and turns to keep you glued to the screen with side splitting laughter.

This current installment once again involves Harold Lee (John Cho) and “best” friend Kumar Patel (Kal Penn) who are after their last success at joining the normal world have planned a holiday to Amsterdam, the weed capital of the world.

Unbeknown to Harold, Kumar also has a plan of tracking down his old crush Maria (Paula Grace), however things don't go as planned for our two “bong” heads. You immediately know that you are in for a ridiculous treat when both Harold and Kumar are attempting to pack their suitcases, with Harold being the pedantic one of the two is already packed, however for Kumar, he is having difficulty in finding clean clothes to take. One item he does take, is a men’s magazine called “Vagina” which leads to an even more embarrassing moment than Something about Mary.

As Kumar cannot go through the day without his daily cannabis fix, he smuggles aboard the plane a smokeless bong and to compound the current security threats in the US, both Harold and Kumar are mistaken for terrorists when those aboard think the bong is a bomb.

As both are apprehended into custody thanks to the efforts of the anal Homeland Security offer Ron Fox (Rob Corddry), they are sent to Guantanamo bay before they must offer themselves to the guards of this institution. Thankfully, something intervenes and they manage to escape, only to end up in Florida that causes a whole world of mischief, from interrupting the wedding of Kumar’s ex-girlfriend Vanessa (Danneel Harris) and of course bumping into Neil Patrick Harris which was truly hilarious.

Harold & Kumar escape from Guantanamo Bay is definitely a film for males due to its immature content and gutter humour. Out of curiosity, I attempted to watch this with my wife, however one scene included a “top” only party for around 50 women and this offended her so much, that I was left to review this movie by myself.

The comedy of Harold & Kumar escape from Guantanamo Bay is quite over the top at times which uses just about all American stereotypes in the movie from rednecks to George W. Bush (James Adomian) in a truly memorable scene.

And as we move on, Harold & Kumar are easily the 21st century odd couple and once again the Zucker brothers create a truly memorable comedy about almost everything politically incorrect. It’s classic 80’s comedy with a 21st century twist.

On Blu-ray, the video quality is outstanding as the sharpness of the images are amazing, especially on certain scenes which the viewer doesn’t really need to see. Match that with a great blu-ray soundtrack and Harold & Kumar escape from Guantanamo Bay is truly a first class cinematic experience, however from the comforts of your own home.
