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.
Three friends on losing streaks: Adam, whose girlfriend dumped him, Nick, with a dead-end job and a cheating wife, and Lou, a suicidal alcoholic. To help Lou recover from car-exhaust poisoning, Adam and Nick, with Adam's nephew Jacob, go to a winter resort that was their old party place. It's now a dump, but the lads rally for a night of drinking in the hot tub. Somehow, the hot tub takes them back to 1986, on a fateful night for each of them. Maybe if they do everything the same way they did that night, they'll get back to the future so Jacob can be born. There are serious temptations to do things differently. Will they make it back to their sorry lives? And what about Jacob? Written by

Listen to me, man. That guy, that guy has pummeled you again and again.
He made you his little bitch!
He's humiliated you, emasculated you. The wheel of fate has stopped and dumped you here again, utterly defeated.
None of this is helping me at all.
I know, it's coming. It's coming right now.
Maybe you're supposed to do something different...
What is this, girl talk? Let's go here, come on.
You're better than him!

The end credits start out as one of the main characters' alternative histories, showing real crew names over a flashy 1980s music video. See more »
I hope there's an invisible minus sign before that 7.2 rating
I wish I'd get paid to give bad reviews as it happens with most of the reviewers on IMDb yet I feel the need to be honest for free. This movie is plain stupid, no character introduction, no character development and a story that a 7 year old could easily top in his first written sentence. I really had trouble understanding why John Cusack would star in such a movie. Finally getting past that idea due to the fact that he got a large amount of money for this movie, I'm starting to think he got paid extra for bad acting. The comedy in this movie is actually a drama, except it's a drama for the viewer. Save your money and watch something else or get really drunk before watching it, this way you won't remember it tomorrow.
