I finally caught up with Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bayseveral months after it played in theaters, but still a few weeks before the official DVD release. Part of what is great about the Harold and Kumar movies is that they are not serious political critiques in the guise of dumb hetero-boy stoner comedies. They really ar e dumb hetero-boy stoner comedies, and their politics has to be placed and understood in that context.
Plugged In exists to shine a light on the world of popular entertainment while giving you and your family the essential tools you need to understand, navigate and impact the culture in which we live. Through reviews, articles and discussions, we want to spark intellectual thought, spiritual growth and a desire to follow the command of Colossians "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ. Just today I was reading Psalm 37 and thinking about how your ministry provides ways to 'dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
In addition to their box office grosses, the films were successful on home video. The series has been released on both Blu-ray and DVD. On their way they encounter many obstacles, including a gang of extreme sports punks, a raccoon with an attitude, a group of Asian nerds, a racist police department, a cheetah that has escaped from a zoo, and an out-of-control Neil Patrick Harris.
As the two has separated and have gotten new friends. Kumar still gets high and lives in the apartment. Harold has become a sucessful businessman and is married to Maria Paula Garces.
Both films even share the same director. Yes, it has the requisite jokes about bodily functions and bizarre sex acts. It has an abundance of pot smoking gags, as well as female nudity.
Has quietly come waltzing by, Together now we multiply To form a number we prefer, Rejoicing as an integer. Now, Guantanamo Bay deals with racial profiling or maybe still aiming itself at stereotypes? No accents, and no cliches. It could be either character development or, more likely, exaggeration.
Six years have passed since the two escaped G-Bay. Harold John Cho has married Maria, went on to become a wealthy Wall Street businessman and moved out of the apartment into a decent two-story house. Kumar Kal Penn is still living in the apartment, was expelled from medical school for failing a drug test, unemployed and single he broke up with Vanessa.
For example, if you chose for Kumar to not light up on the plane near the beginning of the movie…you get a crazy amount of extra footage in Amsterdam. What was very funny to watch were all the fans standing around, trying to wave at them and getting all excited that there was all these interviews going on up there. Jon Hurwitz: It was crazy for us—this is Jon speaking.
