Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay

Warner Brothers Pictures

In their latest adventure, Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay, everybody's favorite pot-smoking buddies not named Cheech and Chong are on the loose after being falsely accused of terrorism on a flight to Amsterdam.

Sounds ridiculous, right? What's even more absurd—and kind of awesome—is how well the first movie has done on DVD. After earning only $19 million or so at the box office, Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle has become a cult classic, racking up big bucks in the home-video market. Expect this sequel to do the same.

On opening weekend, though, look for Kal Penn, John Cho and Neil Patrick Harris to do around $12.6 million. Pretty good for a cult-flick-in-the-making (and for New Line, which needs all the help it can get these days). Also, divide $12.6 by 3 and what do you get? (Hint: 4.20!)

What do you think? Am I smoking something, or holding the knowledge stash? Sound off in the comments.
