Critic Reviews for Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay
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.
Amid the dick jokes, drug taking and gratuitous nudity, the film also serves as a salient reminder about what actually ranks as subversive comedy.
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.
Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantánamo Bay, a loosely strung-together collection of sex, race, and stoner jokes, is, by any rational standard, a terrible movie, yet I kept laughing at it, and I came out of the theatre in a good mood.
Audience Reviews for Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay
A big step (or two) down overall when compared to its predecessor, but this is still a pretty funny and extreme satirical comedy in which no one is spared. The freshness wasn't all there, but I enjoyed the movie regardless. Here's to hoping that future sequels keep from getting stale, and creativity enters back into the mix. Also, the title needs to be changed. Keeping it the way it is with how the film plays out is asinine. They need to call it Harold & Kumar go to Amsterdam or something. What hurts the movie the most, for me, is that it's a really big retread of the first, but this time they take the shock humor to some extreme and sometimes really offensive levels. Some of it does work, some doesn't, but it is overkill regardless. I still give it a lot of credit however because it does tackle some actual issues, even if it mostly prefers to focus on the dumb humor.
