Only in America

I’ve just seen a trailer on TV for a new movie – “Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay” – http://www.haroldandkumar.com/

It appears to be a story about two men – played by John Cho and Kal Penn – who get mistaken for terrorists. In the tradition of seventies anti-heroes “Cheech and Chong”, their previous “hit” was apparently about their road trip across America to satisfy their “weed-induced case of ‘the munchies'”.

The New York Times rates it as “The Perfect Movie” while TIME magazine calls it “The first feel-good torture film”.

Laugh? There goes another rib…

Do we have no sense of propriety any more? This US-made film has to be one of the sickest examples of profiteering I’ve seen in a long time.

I assume the writers, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg spent real time in Guantanamo Bay, experienced the realities, and still found it a source of amusement?

As they say – only in America.
