A sequel that delivers

I'm going to start by talking about the first film for a bit. When I first heard the title "Harold and Kumar go to White Kastle," I thought, oh this is going to be like those crappy 2-hr commercial movies that ruined the 1980s. Trash like the skittles and McDonalds advertisements called "Mac and Me" and the infomercial for the Nintendo Power Glove called "The Wizard."

With "... White Kastle" my initial thought was it must be bad, they have to go with a regional fast food chain. They can't even get a national chain on board; not even Taco Bell! And White Kastle itself? Growing up on the West Coast, my only familiarity with it is from my grocer's freezer section and Beastie Boys lyrics.

So the movie was a "rental" at best. But when I finally saw it, I laughed into tears. NPH. The Cheetah. "Is this your bush?". "I'm a business hippie." Freakshow. Excellent. I bought the DVD and made all my doubter friends watch it.

The first movie was a set up for a sequel, but when they didn't call it "Harold and Kumar go to Amsterdam" and instead called it "Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay" I was weary. I was expecting an abortion in the same vein as the "Matrix" sequels.

But Harold and Kumar surprised me again. The first movie made fun of race and stereotypes in a very charming and surprisingly non-cliched way. It could have easily been "Crash" with pot jokes, but it was much smarter and subversive. than that.

"Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay" took the heart of the original and blew it up onto an international scale. It doesn't have as many quotable lines, but relies more on visual shock value to land its punch-lines. Because of this, I don't want to give away any of the jokes. Just believe me that this sequel does deliver the laughs, and it's not just a retread of the first film. "Guantanamo Bay" also sets itself up for a third movie, so wait until after the credits end for the hint to what's next for the boys: "Revenge of NPH"?

Pretty Good..Not Better Than The First

This movie had it's funny parts but I feel lacked a good story.

I would suggest seeing the first one before watching this one so you don't get lost.

There are some parts that will have you laughing for weeks.

I'm still laughing a week later.

Hilariously Bad ( but in a good way !)

This movie starts right where the first on left off so if you have not seen White Castle see that before seeing this movie or you will lose out on some of the story.

This movie is less about stoner humor which was what most of the first one was and more racial humor and jabs at our current government. So if you don't appreciate that kind of humor this movie is not for you.

Neil Patrick Harris (Dougie Houser) is back and as messed up as ever which is awesome!

It's a fast passed movie that doesn't feel rushed which is good because it hold your attention with out making you feel that you missed something.

This was definitely better than the first but still see the first one before seeing this one.

Better than the first.

So much better than the first, however, it really requires that you had seen the first in order to really enjoy this one.

THe previous movie picked up speed as it went along, and this movie literally picks up where the last left off, and keeps going never losing speed.

It's interestign how the writters decided to create certain situations. As they develope you're nearly certain that the scenario is going to play out one way then a quick scene or two and it goes another. Whatever way they chose to go, it made it more funny, it's like if humor was suspended disbelief, this movie went to great lengths to suspend it a little higher that the rest.

I seriously haven't laughed that hard in a good long time. I hope they make another one, but I'd be just as happy if they left it as is.

North Korea meets Al-Qaeda part 2!

Who would of thought a bottomless party will be that nice!

A nice sequel to White Castle. As hilarious as the first sequel. Jokes on everyone. Many "things" to see. You'll have to watch it to know what I mean.

A touching tale of brotherhood and redemption

and unicorns.

the Kafkaesque functioning of our post-9-11 judicial system
the sad paranoia of a nation gone... sad and paranoid
the outwitting of Homeland Security by our brave hero Neil Patrick Harris. On shrooms.

There's also a plot. Sort of. It's definitely worth watching. I'm sure you can imagine what mood you should be in...

Absolutely Hilarious

I went into this movie thinking it would be more of the same from the last movie. That is exactly what it was. This movie starts off IMMEDIATELY after the first, and goes from there. It's very fast paced, but without being rushed.

If there are drawbacks to the movie, it might be that you really need to see the first to get everything in this one. Also, if you are not a fan of racial humor or political jabs against our current government, you may get offended here. That said, you probably wouldn't even be considering this movie and reading this review if those were serious issues.

All in all, its better than the first, but in the same vein. So if you liked the first, you'll love this.
