Plot Outline: Follows the cross-country adventures of the pot-smoking duo as they try to outrun authorities who suspect them of being terrorists when they try to sneak a bong on board their flight to Amsterdam.
Plot: The morning they return from their White Castle road trip, Harold and Kumar decide to go to Amsterdam because Harold doesnt want to wait ten days to see Maria again. On the plane, Kumar lights up his new bong, the air marshals think its a bomb, and Harold and Kumar are arrested as terrorists and sent to Guantanamo Bay. Ordered to fellate a guard, they manage to escape, make their way to Florida, and head for Texas to find Kumars ex-girlfriends fiancй, the well-connected Colton, and get him to intercede with Washington on their behalf. Kumar still has a thing for Vanessa, the feds are in hot pursuit, and the legal weed of Amsterdam seems a long way away.

Trivia: There are 5 entries in the trivia list – like these:
- Neil Patrick Harris worked 4 days on this movie.
- In an April 24 2008 Newark Star Ledger interview, the writers Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg mention that the poem “The Square Root of Three” that Kumar recites was written by a classmate of theirs, David Feinberg when all three went to Randolph High School in New Jersey. They were happy they could include in the film a poem they loved while growing up, and Feinberg was thrilled to make a contribution to the film.
- Amnesty International USA was highly critical of the films satirical depiction of the Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp, commenting on their website that “Guantanamo is no joke.” The organizations membership was encouraged to hand out fliers and fact sheets at theatrical screenings to bring attention to the alleged human rights abuses that have occurred at the camp.
