  • Following Maria Quesa Dilla (Paula Garcés), Harold Lee (John Cho) and Kumar Patel (Kal Penn) catch a flight to Amsterdam. When Kumar is caught smoking grass in the lavatory, his bong is mistaken for a bomb, and they both get declared terrorists and sent to a detention camp at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. Within the hour, they manage to escape and catch a ride to Miami with some Cuban refugees. With the aid of their friend Raza (Amir Talai), they obtain a car and head for Hewitt, Texas to find Colton Graham (Eric Winter), the fiancé of Kumar's ex-girlfriend Vanessa Fanning (Danneel Ackles), to get him to intercede with President Bush on their behalf. With Homeland Security just one step behind them, they meet up with some Alabama rednecks, attend a Ku Klux Klan cookout, run into Neil Patrick Harris, and visit a brothel. Edit

  • Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay is taken from a screenplay by co-directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg. It is a sequel to Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle (2004) (2004) and was followed by A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas (2011) (2011). Edit

  • Just minutes later. Escape from Guantanamo Bay begins with Harold taking a shower and fantasizing about his encounter in the elevator with Maria Quesa Dilla. At the same time, Kumar is seated on the toilet evacuating the 30 hamburgers he just ate at White Castle. Kumar notes that they have but one hour before they must leave for the airport to follow Maria to Amsterdam. Edit

  • It's based on a stereotype that black people like grape soda, just like fried chicken and watermelon. Edit

  • After being sucked out the door of the airplane back to Guantanamo, Harold and Kumar crash through the roof of President George W. Bush (James Adomian). After smoking some weed together, the boys tell the President about their predicament, and he pardons them. Escorted by three Secret Service agents, Harold and Kumar attend Vanessa's wedding. Colton confronts Kumar, but Harold punches him. Upset with Kumar for embarrassing her at her wedding, Vanessa walks away, until Kumar begins to recite the poem he was writing when they first met in the school library. Vanessa and Kumar kiss and make up. The three of them then fly to Amsterdam where Harold interrupts Maria during a photo shoot, and the four of them go off together to smoke. In the final scene, Neil Patrick Harris is shown getting up from the lawn, having survived two shotgun blasts to his back. Edit

  • I fear that I will always be A lonely number like root 3. A 3 is all that's good and right Why must my 3 keep out of sight Beneath a vicious square root sign? I wish instead I were a 9, For 9 could thwart this evil trick With just some quick arithmetic. I know I'll never see the sun as 1.7321 Such is my reality A sad irrationality. When, hark, what's this I see? Another square root of a 3 Has quietly come waltzing by. Together now we multiply And form a number we prefer Rejoicing as an integer. We break free from our mortal bonds And with a wave of magic wands Our square root signs come unglued And love for me has been renewed. Edit

  • The unrated version offers a bit more nudity and a bunch of new plot scenes. There are 52 alterations and the unrated versions is 7 minutes and 15 seconds longer than the R-rated theatrical version. Edit
