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

Funny and acerbic. H & K open up the whole US experience. If ever a country needed to laugh at itself the US is the hottest candidate. H&K do it in spades. If Germany under Hitler had had these guys - and the same freedom of speech - the second war would never have happened. Or not.
So funny and so biting. If you want a laugh and some good social satire see this movie. If you want to feel comfortable that your leaders are caring for your ass - don't.
I watched it in two parts because it was too full-on and I needed to reflect. Reflection is a luxury. Not a vice. See it.
