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.
Ohio high school student Scott Thomas is a good student and nice guy - albeit a little predictable - who is about to graduate and go into pre-med. He is unceremoniously dumped by his whorish girlfriend Fiona on graduation day. Among the people he turns to in his hour of despair is his German pen pal, Mike. Scott and Mike seem to have a special connection. After Mike makes advances to Scott now that he and Fiona are not seeing each other, Scott abruptly sends Mike a message saying he never wants to hear from him again. However, Scott learns shorty thereafter that Mike is actually a beautiful girl named Mieke. By this time, Mieke has blocked his messages. Thinking that Mieke is actually who he was meant to be with, Scott, impulsively for a change, decides to go to Berlin to be with her. Along for the ride is Scott's best friend, the girl crazy Cooper Harris. They manage only to get a flight into London, and thus have to make their way from London to Berlin. Along the way in Paris, they ...Written by
The original text of the email Scotty receives Mieke actually says: Lieber Scott, Ich war ein sehr trauriges Mädchen, als ich hörte, dass deine Freundin Fiona dir den Laufpass gab. Aber vielleicht ist es so zum Besten. Ich war jedenfalls sehr froh darüber! Ich muss für nächstes Jahr eine grosse Entscheidung treffen. Und da dachte ich, da du ja jetzt keine Freundin mehr hast, könnte ich in die Vereinigten Staaten kommen und wir könnten uns besser kennenlernen. Vielleicht könnten wir ein Treffen arrangieren. Bis Bald, Mieke. Translated, this says: Dear Scott, I was a very sad girl when I heared that your girlfriend Fiona dumped you. But maybe it is for the best. I was glad about it, anyway! I must make a big decision about the next year. And I thought, that since you don't have a girlfriend anymore, that I could come to the United States and we could become better acquainted. Maybe we can arrange a meeting. Until soon, Mieke. See more »

Fun Flick but not for the Family
Prior to watching this movie for the first time, my friends would not stop quoting this movie and telling me how great it was. Now that I've seen it I can see why they love it so much. I will admit that this film is extremely raunchy and even shows some images I didn't think were allowed in R-rated movies. Never-the-less the jokes are hilarious and the plot flows rather smoothly.
Some people probably hate this movie because of the way it portrays Europeans. To them I say LIGHTEN UP! It's a movie that's meant to be stereotypical. They stereotype with taste, however, using many of the common views and prejudices that the average American feels towards the inhabitants of the various countries.
All in all, the cast was well selected, the music was awesome, the situations were entertaining, and the locations were great. I highly suggest this movie to people that love to laugh an don't get easily offended.
