Film Review: Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantànamo Bay

2008-06-29 00:00

This is the second film in the Harold and Kumar franchise, and like the first, Harold and Kumar go to White Castle, is redeemed from sub-stupid jokes and an obsession with bodily functions by its sharp satire of American racial politics. Guantànamo Bay picks up 20 minutes after White Castle ended, as the likeable buddies are about to set off for Amsterdam in pursuit of a girl.

On the way, the two fugitives encounter inbred rednecks, Klanners, spirited prostitutes and Doogie Howser (again), while rediscovering their friendship. But of course the FBI is in hot pursuit, lead by the pompous Ron Fox, who stands for the worst in America’s policy towards minorities and foreigners.
