    I just saw this yesterday, and I don't see a thread about it, so...
    Well, first and foremost, you probably aren't going to like it if you didn't like the first. If you did like the first, I think this was a good followup. They did a pretty good job of making new jokes and not just rehashing the first movies. It also, oddly enough, had a very creepy moment that was only slightly more light hearted because obviously this was a comedy and nothing too horrific was going to happen. There's also a surprisingly long scene featuring a lot of bottomless girls, so... you know... take that as you will. I saw the movie with my girlfriend and couldn't help but laugh when she totally gasped when the camera scrolled down to show the first girls... well, bare front. Other girlfriends/wives may not be so well humored about that sort of thing.

    Anyways, funny, crude, and not likely to win any awards. 6/10

    I found it rather enjoyable. Not quite as good as the first, which I absolutely loved..but it was entertaining enough.

    I loved the first one (incidentally, we got it as Harold & Kumar Get The Munchies, because we don't have White Castle over here. More's the pity; Crave Case for the WIN), so I can't wait to see this. DMK and I were going to see it after Botcon, but never got a chance.

    It was okay, but not better than the first.

    If I were to give the first an 8/10, I'd have to give this one a 7. The reason being, that while both movies were pretty funny, the first had the advantage of being "fresh"(can't think of a better word).

    I think this was a good followup, but yeah, since I give this one a 6/10, which honestly for me is slightly above average, I would have given the first about a 7.

    It definitely had at least 100% more full frontal wang in it than the previous movie.

    This was countered by 100% more Neil Patrick Harris being crazy, so it all balances out. A fun movie, agreed to not be as good as the first, but good for a larf.

    Love the first one, don't think (without even seeing it) that the sequel will be better so I'll be seeing it with low expectations. Nice to know nudity has been dialed up a notch. :thumb

    The scene with Bush (The president, not the pubes) was quite funny- particularly the 'hypocriticizer' part.

    I couldn't believe how much full frontal they showed in the one scene. How did this not get an NC-17? I guess the boundaries have been stretched over the years.

    Saw it today, loved the first one. I :lol  'ed. Not as good as the first, but well worth watching.

    I think I lol'ed hardest at the scene with Richard Christy from the Howard Stern Show, when he was pissing on Harold and Kumar, and then the "Mexican's!" line. :lol

    i saw it when it came out, thought it was pretty awesome. it was crossing the line back and forth between "lame crude humor" and "actually funny humor", both of which are hilarious. but it puts it above the majority of comedies that have come out recently.

    Fuck! I knew there was something I needed to stay for. Stayed for the 4 running around Amsterdam, but once the credits went black, we left. Damnit!

    I liked the movie. Lots of "WTF?! Thats not right" moments. Wasn't as funny as the first one, but I'd watch it again when it comes out on DVD
