After being mistaken for terrorists and thrown into Guantánamo Bay, stoners Harold and Kumar escape and return to the U.S., where they proceed to flee across the country with federal agents in hot pursuit.
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. 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. Kumar still has a thing for Vanessa, the feds are in hot pursuit, and the legal weed of Amsterdam seems a long way away. Written by
In an April 24 2008 Newark Star Ledger interview, the writers Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg mention that Kumar's poem "The Square Root of Three" (parody of Joyce Kilmer's Trees) was written by a classmate of theirs, David Feinberg when all three went to Randolph High School in New Jersey. They were happy they could include in the film a poem they loved while growing up, and Feinberg was thrilled to make a contribution to the film. See more »
When Harold and Kumar are taking the plane back to Guantanamo Bay, they have two agents sitting on each side of them. The agent next to Kumar brings his hand up to his mouth, coughs, and says "Queers!", however, in the next shot the agent's hand is down by his side. See more »

Oh God, dude!
What the fuck? What the fuck? What are you doing?
I'm taking the most incredible dump of all time, man.
You couldn't wait until I got out of the shower?
Um, may I remind you that we both just ate 30 burgers and 4 large orders of fries?
[continues to take a dump]
Don't worry, in a little bit I'm sure it'll hit you too.
Maybe, but I'm going to wait until you get out of the shower!
Well don't wait too long. We gotta leave for the airport in an ...

I saw this movie on Saturday and laughed aloud throughout.
This movie is not for everyone. There is nudity as well as drug and bodily function humor; however, it is definitely funny. Unlike most drug-themed movies, Harold and Kumar doesn't show the boys as being a couple of baked idiots, but as an intelligent sensitive individual paired with a baked idiot. Much like Bruce Willis' Blind Date, it only takes one person with absolutely no impulse control to make your life hell. As they said in Star Wars, however, there is another.
Neil Patrick Harris, after a cameo in the first movie, plays the same character only much further off the deep end than before. He is a mushroom-gobbling, whore-branding sociopath who makes Kumar look like an ivy league professor.
I must warn those who have seen the first movie. There are no cheetahs.
I am sorry...
