Picking up right where the last movie left off, [[JohnCho Harold]] and [[Creator/KalPenn Kumar]], fresh from their trip to White Castle, have decided to follow Harold's neighbor Maria to Amsterdam. On the plane Kumar and the bong he brought on are mistaken for a terrorist and a bomb, and Kumar, along with his "North Korean accomplise" Harold, are thrown in Guantanamo Bay. The two escape and head to Texas, pursued by an overzealous Deputy Security of Homeland Security. An old friend of theirs, Colton, is getting married to Kumar's ex-girlfriend Vanessa, and has invited president GeorgeWBush to the wedding. Harold wants to get a pardon; Kumar wants to ruin the wedding.

* RealitySubtext: The sight of Harold and Kumar causes Rob Corddry's character to rant about how "al-Qaeda and the North Koreans" must be teaming up. [[JohnCho John Cho]]'s father actually was a refugee from what is now North Korea, who faced near-starvation while fleeing south.
