Storyline Heading
Harold and Kumar are two stoners who can’t 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 “the munchies.” 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.

Drama Comedy - Like the first film, this is a very raunchy, drug-filled comedy aimed at young adult males. Those sensitive to constant comedy involving sex and drug use should steer clear.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average It's sporadically enjoyable in a silly, mindless way and it's hard not to laugh at least a few time while awash in all the bad taste.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average In a film that is even more raunchy and raucous than its predecessor, Harold and Kumar are still focused on the pleasures of weed and wild women, but this long, strange trip of a sequel also is surprisingly subversive and politically charged.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
We pick up with Harold (John Cho) and Kumar (Kal Penn) right where we left them – in their apartment after they've successfully completed their White Castle quest. It's only an hour or two later, and the guys are preparing for an epic adventure to Amsterdam so that Harold can win the heart of his crush, Maria.

At the airport, Kumar runs into his ex-girlfriend, Vanessa (Danneel Harris), and he's shocked to discover she's about to get married.

Before they even get on the plane, Kumar threatens to botch the mission by mixing it up with airport security personnel, insisting on protesting a random search. Though they do make it onto the plane, Kumar, get to Amsterdam, Kumar takes a home-made "smokeless bong” into the airplane bathroom. Turbulence strikes, the bathroom door swings open, the bong's mistaken for a bomb, and the guys are mistaken for terrorists. 

The plane is turned around and the guys are detained in Guantanamo Bay. They undertake an even more obstacle-laden journey, but instead of a snack, they're seeking to clear their names of the charges that they're terrorists and secure their freedom.

Their plan for accomplishing this involves a journey from Guantanamo Bay to Miami to Texas, to Vanessa's wedding to seek help from her fiancé, a politically connected friend of Harold's with ties to one of America's most powerful and prominent political families. It's an epic journey not easily carried out, and along the way they encounter the Ku Klux Klan, an inbred Cyclops baby, and – once again – Neil Patrick Harris.

Hot on their heels is Deputy Chief of Homeland Security Ron Fox (Rob Corddry), for whom simply hearing Harold and Kumar are suspected terrorists is enough to convict and imprison them. 

Still, with all of what's at stake, the irrepressible Kumar is firm in his commitment to enjoying whatever journey he's on. Between this proclivity and his desire to break up the wedding of Vanessa, who he realizes is the one that got away, even though he dumped her for fear of things getting to serious, Kumar once again pushes the limits of Harold's friendship, patience and sanity. But whatever doesn't kill their friendship will make it stronger.
