Is there anyone who doesn’t suspect that Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay (New Line, 4.25) will somehow play fast and loose, water down or otherwise make light of that deplorable situation? I don’t know the plot or the shot, but if you saw the first film you know the director-writers (Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg) and their basic attitudes and instincts. That said, it’s probably better to have made some kind of comedy with a Gitmo backdrop than not. Better to have it out there than pushed aside, I mean.
