  • As the idea is no longer fresh and the plot has basically the same structure, it doesn't quite match the original. But the sequel delivers enough new developments to keep it interesting.

  • The film is so even-handed and so diligent in its urge to offend that after a while I felt myself go numb.

    September 5, 2008 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Amid the dick jokes, drug taking and gratuitous nudity, the film also serves as a salient reminder about what actually ranks as subversive comedy.

    September 5, 2008 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

Audience Reviews for Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay

  • Jan 30, 2015
    Unbelievably awful, Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay is a wickedly bad trip. Picking up where the last film ended, Harold and Kumar take off for Amsterdam but get sent to Guantanamo Bay prison after being mistaken for terrorists. It's a ridiculous plot that just gets more and more offensive as it goes on. The writing is just terrible, with cartoonish characters and incredibly lame, racist jokes. Massively stupid and tasteless, Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay is an insulting and cliched goofball comedy.

    This is the second Harold and Kumar film that I have seen and they seem to be descending to new lows. The plot of the title is wrapped up quickly and the remaining film is a meandering mess of bad jokes.

    Only the die hard potheads will really like this sequel. It's mostly funny for the first hour or so, but after that it gets way too far-fetched and over-the-top. The original is definitely better.
