Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay Synopsis

Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay marks the triumphant return of these two hilarious, slacker anti-heroes. The movie stars John Cho as Harold and Kal Penn as Kumar, two stoners who canít seem to get a break. Their last adventure found them traveling across country to find a White Castle hamburger in order to satisfy a weed-induced case of ďthe munchies.Ē

This time, the boys get themselves in trouble trying to sneak a bong onboard a flight to Amsterdam. Now, being suspected of terrorism, they are forced to run from the law and try to find a way to prove their innocence. What follows is an irreverent and epic journey of deep thoughts, deeper inhaling and a wild trip around the world that is as ďun-PCĒ as it gets.



Harold and Kumar arenít exactly known for heavy social commentary, so itís a little strange to see them launching their second big screen adventure atop a movie with the words ďGuantanamo BayĒ in the title. Thereís nothing funny about water boarding. In a way though, it does make sense. The first movie may have primarily been a madcap, pot smoking road trip but it did make it a point of addressing the way people of different ethnic backgrounds sometimes get abused by the Man. John Choís character for instance, is saddled with his co-workerís excess work because heís Asian. This however, seems to be taking all of that light-hearted racial stick poking to an entirely new level.

I donít know if I want to see Harold and Kumar wandering around Getmo, but I do know I want to see more of coke-sniffing, whore-banging Neil Patrick Harris. Harris, not Penn or Cho, was the real bright spot in the original movie. He runs away with the entire thing in his few scenes, and since heís back for the sequel, rest assured that even if everything else goes to hell heíll provide plenty of laughter. Come on, youíve seen the trailers. Neil Patrick Harris on a unicorn? Thatís funny already.

I Just Saw The Future Of Movie Theaters And It Is Weird I Just Saw The Future Of Movie Theaters And It Is Weird
When it comes to budding filmmaker technology, creating an immersive theatrical experience is the name of the game. In the last few years weíve seen the immense growth of formats like 3D and IMAX, with filmmakers like James Cameron and Christopher Nolan pushing boundaries to see what new cameras and tech can do, but now weíre even stepping beyond that. This summer we saw the arrival of the first 4DX theater in the United States, and soon we will be seeing the growth and expanse of a whole new format: Barco Escape.

Has Hollywood Found Something Better Than IMAX? Has Hollywood Found Something Better Than IMAX?
It was only about five years ago that James Cameron's Avatar changed the world's perspective on the cinematic experience and both IMAX and 3D. And while we've seen some marvelous titles take advantage of both formats in the time since, the reality is that the industry is now regularly looking for a way to stay fresh and innovative.

New Regency Buys Pitch For Hellbent, A Supernatural Prison Movie New Regency Buys Pitch For Hellbent, A Supernatural Prison Movie
You'd think being stuck in prison would be a horrible enough situation to generate plenty of dramatic tension and storytelling possibilities. The brutality, the tedium, the driving urge to escape... you could spin a thousand tales out of those concepts and many titles have. But noooooo, Hollywood won't just be satisfied with the mere terror of incarceration; they've got to spice it up.
