The morning they return from their White Castle trip, Harold and Kumar decide to go to Amsterdam because Harold doesn't want to wait ten days to see Maria again.
On the plane, Kumar lights up his new bong, but the air marshals think it's a bomb, and Harold and Kumar are arrested as terrorists and sent to Guantanamo Bay.
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.
Kumar still has a thing for Vanessa, the feds are in hot pursuit, and the legal weed of Amsterdam seems a long way away.
The first time I saw this movie, it was very late and I was pretty drunk, and I found it pretty good. Three years later, I'm watching on a Sunday afternoon, and I see the movie for what it is, a quick cash in on a sleeper hit.
It's really not that funny, and Kumar has to be one of the most unlikable characters ever committed to screen who is supposed to be the hero.
Gags are flat, Nudity is cringeworthy and prolonged too much making it unfunny, and the saving grace is NPH, but he's in it for such a small time, it's hardly worth it.
If you enjoyed this, it's because of diminished expectation. The first movie was a little treat, and between that and this, not many good comedies have been released, so you believe that you enjoy it.
