We gave it a C

In the lackluster sequel Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay, the potheads aren’t just trying to score weed — they’re also on the run from the law. The ridiculous scenarios (they almost immediately break out of jail) aren’t funny. The EXTRAS on the two-disc edition, however, are pretty hilarious: One feature lets you change the story line by swapping in alternate scenes. On the commentary, the supersmart stars chat about the franchise’s future. Hopefully next time they’ll escape into more entertaining territory. C
