My main objection boils down to this: if the filmmakers set up an anything-goes policy of outraging all notions of human dignity, they're obligated to live up to it without respecting age, race, creed, class, nationality -- or gender.

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

The Australian

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.

For a stoner comedy, it makes some lucid points.

Just make sure that you're really stoned when you see it.

Daily Telegraph (Australia)

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

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

Amid the dick jokes, drug taking and gratuitous nudity, the film also serves as a salient reminder about what actually ranks as subversive comedy.

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

Uses its sly brand of humor to say plenty about the state of race relations in the U.S. (really).

Now only a pot comedy would conceive of turning George W. into a goofy, dare I say even likable pothead who's afraid of his dad and Dick Cheney.

July 23, 2008
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.

Anything the filmmakers might have, could have, should have handled with even the remotest degree of subtlety...they didn't.

A prison sex slave rebellion having to do with an organ sandwich, don't ask, and a detour over to Bush's secret sex den, make this ballsy doper duo and their Blue State versus Red State rant hard to resist.

Whereas White Castle had a freshness in its humor, Guantanamo goes crude for the sake of crudeness, to the point of ruining entire scenes.
Robert Roten

A drunken bachelor party kind of movie, more of a rental idea than a full-priced theater movie.

Those wishing to defend the honor of the red states will find much to dislike here, starting with the depiction of Southerners as rednecks and Klansmen
| Original Score: 4/5

Unfortunately, the movie has too many uninspired and shockingly unfunny moments that outweigh the good by at least a few tons.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

A surprisingly 'post-9/11' movie, it combines typical stoner humor with a plot about ethnic profiling, torture, and War on Terror paranoia. But, like, in a funny way.
