Harold and Kumar ‘Escape from Guantanamo’ to a bottomless Party
If you love quirky and socially incorrect comedies then you can’t go past Harold and Kumar: Escape from Guantanamo Bay.
This comedy stars Kal Penn as Kumar Patel and John Cho as Harold Lee, two flatmates go are mistaken for terrorists and end up in the notorious Guantanamo Bay.
Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg wrote, directed and produced the film.
The story continues where Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle ends.
Harold Lee; of Korean descent, and Kumar Patel; of Indian descent, are two American stoner flatmates in a rush to catch the next plane to Amsterdam, the weed capital of the world and, also where Maria (Harold’s new girlfriend), played by Paula Garcés, has gone.
Unfortunately, the airport crew and passengers are naturally suspicious of the two because of their ethnicity. Before you know it, the pair has been accused of terrorism and shipped to Guantanamo Bay or G Bay as the President calls it.
This film is absolutely hilarious and makes fun of almost everything that is wrong with the United States of America (and some parts of the world). However, the treatment of detainees at G Bay is the central theme of this film.
The scene in which two inmates are forced to eat a ‘cock meat sandwich’ from a prison guard is satirical of such treatment. However the most offensive scene would be the ‘bottomless party’ in which their friend from college throws a party where everyone is naked from the bottom down.
We are also given an insight into the duos past and personalities.
This gone mainly through Kumar’s nostalgic recollections especially when he finds out that his ex-girlfriend Vanessa (Danneel Harris), is about to get hitched.
This film is offensive to nearly half the population and hilarious to the other.
