Did You Know?

Trivia:
Amnesty International USA was highly critical of the film's satirical depiction of the Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp, commenting on their website that "Guantanamo is no joke." The organization's membership was encouraged to hand out fliers and fact sheets at theatrical screenings to bring attention to the alleged human rights abuses that have occurred at the camp.See more »

Harold Lee:You couldn't wait until I got out of the shower?
Kumar Patel:Um, may I remind you that we both just ate 30 burgers and 4 large orders of fries?
[continues to take a dump]
Kumar Patel:Don't worry, in a little bit I'm sure it'll hit you too.
Harold Lee:Maybe, but I'm going to wait until you get out of the shower!
Kumar Patel:Well don't wait too long. We gotta leave for the airport in an hour.

Funniest Movie this Year, 28 April 2008
Author: masercot from Manassas, Va

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...
