Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay Reviews

In all its mock outrage and its daring shots at hypocrisy, bigotry and the government, Harold & Kumar, the characters and the movie, lose their subversive innocence.

It's sporadically enjoyable in a silly, mindless way and it's hard not to laugh at least a few time while awash in all the bad taste.

You find yourself smiling at some of the bits, wincing through many, many others, and ultimately wondering if the pacing would've improved had either H or K developed a terrible cocaine habit.

The line between vulgar-funny and just plain vulgar is crossed too often in this indefensible sequel.

A bag of shoddy skits that barely qualifies as a movie and taints pleasant memories of their previous clowning besides

While not without its funny moments, this labored sequel ups the nudity and gross-out factor while diminishing the sweetness and evident camaraderie of its appealing leads.

As much as I enjoyed the pot-fueled laughs and the sheer energetic lunacy of the original, I was really let down by this uninspired sequel.

Harold & Kumar should be thrown in Gitmo for starring in such an awful sequel.

An amplification of scale and subject matter that isn't, alas, accompanied by an upgrade in humor.

NewsBlaze

A crass, classic, take-the-money-and-run ripoff which squanders a golden opportunity to make a statement about racial profiling, the Patriot Act and the Geneva Conventions in favor of serving up a mindless teensploit laced with shockingly-graphic images.

Like most comedy sequels, it is not as funny as its predecessor -- but, like most comedy sequels, that won't matter too much if you get stoned before you watch it.

Hurwitz and Schlossberg can't quite recapture their magic in this spotty stoner sequel.

There's an abundance of toilet humour, masturbation, oral sex and fantasies about threesomes with an oversized bag of weed ... The target market will no doubt be primed

Every aspect of the production is atrocious in the extreme.The writing is awful. The direction is bilious.

Unfortunately, the movie has too many uninspired and shockingly unfunny moments that outweigh the good by at least a few tons.

During its slightly surreal scenes, Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay crackles. At other times, it's the same old smoke out.

By the time the relatively brief movie finally (and happily) ends in a flurry of True Love and an exhale of stale smoke, you're ready to embrace your own drug of choice.
