Very few people seemed to know they should hang back after the credits. I thought it was funny that if there were any girls in the theater, they were with their man. I am confident enough to go to such movies without a man :. When you put in an actor to play someone like George W. Be it geographical ethnic or even racist. I agree, it does get offensive at times, but if you don't take this movie seriously, I think you'll be laughing too. Nothing has changed essentially except for perhaps Kumar, who looks as though all that burger weight went instantaneously to his face , but it feels somehow different.
Definitely a stoner movie, and as funny as the first. The two picaresque heroes have been mistaken for terrorists, escape from the infamous Guantanamo, and finally travel to Texas to gain their freedom from the charges. Sure, drug use figures prominently into the plot, but there aren't nearly enough drug scenes to save the movie. The reason that South Park can be appreciated, even when certain episodes are unfunny, is because the creators aren't afraid to voice their minds. The story line is very interesting, the morning Harold and Kumar return from their White Castle road trip, they decide to go to Amsterdam because Harold doesn't want to wait ten days to see Maria again. Penises, semen, flatulence, urine and excrement can be funny in jokes, but in itself are not funny.
On the plane, Kumar lights up his new bong, the air marshals think it's a bomb, and Harold and Kumar are arrested as terrorists and sent to Guantanamo Bay. Ordered to fellate a guard, they manage to escape, make their way to Florida, and head for Texas to find Kumar's ex-girlfriend's fiancé, the well-connected Colton, and get him to intercede with Washington on their behalf. His lazy best friend and roommate is Kumar Patel. Unlike Harold, Kumar is a fearless, confident who is capable of doing what he wants. Kumar still has a thing for Vanessa, the feds are in hot pursuit, and the legal weed of Amsterdam seems a long way away. It's not that the film goes contrary to my point of view. But not so with this one.
It's also viciously mean spirited - and not in the broad, over-the-top blunt no pun intended humor of the 2004 original, either. The ineptitude of the American government is portrayed oftenand actor Rob Corddry is the worst part of the film spearheading that aspect; I just don't like his schtickyet there is always someone there to play the other side Roger Bart and show that while they know there are mistakes, they aren't a bunch of buffoons going around willy-nilly. The only decent scenes were the ones with Neil Patrick Harris but he needed to play a larger role. To add a little spice to the mix, we do get introduced to a new character, Vanessa, an old flame of Kumar's. I know I didn't have that much faith.
Greg Shapiro returned as producer with Kal Penn and John Cho reprising their title roles. The most aggravating thing about Harold and Kumar 2 is how this low-brow, schlocky comedy tries to make it appear as if there's some political message behind it or it had anything important to say. While the first outing addressed significant issues with a refreshing lack of pretension, this sequel fails miserably from the outset and just goes downhill fast from there. The morning they return from their White Castle road trip, Harold and Kumar decide to go to Amsterdam because Harold doesn't want to wait ten days to see Maria again. But if you demand your base humor be as low as it can go, you'll laugh as I did and wonder at your taste. They go against the grain, often against my own opinions, as well as the majority of the publics, and you have to respect them for that. Like this movie, its success and credibility prompted you to search it on internet.
They didn't leave a single stereotype and ignorance untouched in the movie. In , Kumar hasn't spoken to Harold in years. Anyways, I thought it was extremely hilarious, had to groan in a few parts for the raunchiness. Neil Patrick Harris, after a cameo in the first movie, plays the same character only much further off the deep end than before. But most of such sites remain in news because of their illegal practices and such scandals. I am getting so addicted to Harold and Kumar's crazy adventures, it's just pathetic, when I saw Harold and Kumar go to White Castle, I was hooked and bought the movie the next day.
And Harold wants to get to Amsterdam eventually to meet up with the girl he met at the end of the first movie she's there on business; won't she be surprised? I must warn those who have seen the first movie. Back then, everything that the titular duo did was wrapped in a drug-induced haze, and that justified the lowbrow comedy. Harold and Kumar Escape from Gunatanamo Bay is a rip off, best enjoyed if that at home, ironically, with many friends who pay you to see it. Going to White Castle need not be a particularly challenging endeavor. There's broad performance, and there's one-note.
Kumar still has a thing for Vanessa, the feds are in hot pursuit, and the legal weed of Amsterdam seems a long way away. Its definitely one of the best stoner comedies for sure. Sure it isn't all that likely that they would be able to find weed in Guantanamo Bay but scoring would be no less believable than their being there in the first place. It's the type of humor that might make a kid below the age of 10 laugh, but no one any older, unless they are indeed stoned. As the trailer showed, they're mistaken for terraists and are deposited in Guantanamo Bay. I don't consider this just a guy movie.
The fact that they're stoned the whole time only adds to the ridiculousness of it all, especially if you're also stoned at home watching. First off, many of the scenes will just plain make you cringe--and not in the good way. From the first sequence, where the two attempt to get stoned on the plane even before they arrive at smoke-free Amsterdam to an evening with a redneck and his voluptuous wife, with a wild threesome in between, this film is recklessly ribald, exploding pretense while it evokes gut-level laughs. The true object of Harold's desire, however, is Maria Perez played by , who lives down the hall from him in his building. In the films, Harris is portrayed as a heavy drug user and , despite being openly gay in real life. The pair run into Vanessa, Kumar's ex-girlfriend, and her fiancé Colton, another old college buddy who helped Harold with getting a job at Brewster-Keagan, at the airport.
