NSFW Christmas Movie Special: Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas

In Uncategorized on 11/27/2012 at 19:50

I am jumping the gun along with the rest of the country and getting into the Christmas spirit early, because what else do I have to do? For me, December is “that month they don’t play tennis,” but there is also Christmas. Most Christmas movies are cheesy as hell, but the past two nights I have watched some darker takes on the holiday.

First off, the inane Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas.


Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle is a great movie, and while I have really disliked the sequel, it has had semi-staying power in recent years. I was disappointed that the third Harold and Kumar would be a Christmas movie, but the results were a pleasant, if not mild, surprise.

Christmas takes place six years after Escape from Guantanamo Bay, an interesting twist that foreshadows how disjointed this movie feels compared to the first two, which flow seamlessly together both in terms of plot and style.

The movie has a consistent Christmas feel, complete with a holiday musical special (hosted by none other than NPH), vintage stop motion sequence and a cameo from the Man in Red himself. Neil Patrick Harris’s spot boarders on the surreal, and again buoys an otherwise mediocre adventure, as does the adorably needy Waffle Bot.

There are several obvious 3D stunts, a seldom amusing and often distracting gag, and the duo smokes a total of two drags off a joint! This clearly is not a traditional Harold/Kumar installment, but as far as a Christmas comedy goes, it’s top shelf.

Tomorrow…. Bad Santa
