HAROLD & KUMAR ESCAPE FROM GUANTANAMO BAY (New Line Cinema)
"I've Been Around Too Long" The Marmalade (Hugh Nicholson) (Union Square)
Daily Variety declared it "Animal House meets Dr. Strangelove" and called it "one of the ballsiest comedies to come out of Hollywood in a long time." The Guardian (which rated the movie 7 out of 10) noted that despite having a "total nonsense" story, its screening was "one of the most raucous screenings I've ever attended. Even the opening credits were wildly applauded, and much of the dialog was inaudible over the laughter."
