I was crazy excited for this movie to come out. I don’t smoke weed but it doesn’t stop me from enjoying the hell out of the films. This one is set Christmas time and is in 3D (captain obvious here). We at FleshEatingZipper hate 3D movies with a passion but since this movie doesn’t look like it’s ever going to be no 3D in my town so I took one for the team.
We find Harold & Kumar six years after their last batch of fun (both movies combined) not talking to each other. Harold is a successful Wall Street banker (they included the OWS protest in this!) and Kumar is just a pot head that got kicked out of medical school. Harold is trying to impress his father-in-law (Danny Trejo) for Christmas when Kumar drops off a package he received at their old apartment. Harold & Kumar reconnect and blunt mishap set the Christmas tree ablaze and that’s when shit hits the fan. Harold tells Kumar off because he doesn’t want him ruining any thing else.
Harold located another tree but Kumar not knowing that Harold reserved it offers the tree sellers more for it. When Kumar gets in an accident with his neighbor Adrian (Amir Blumenfeld form Jake and Amir, College Humor) they convince Harold that they can get a new tree from a party and that’s when the duo teams back up.
The movie felt a little forced but it’s Harold & Kumar, we get to see a toddler get high on weed, cocaine and ecstasy. The lack of nudity was a little surprising after seeing the second film and it didn’t feel like they did as much stuff as the other films. Neil Patrick Harris, Rosenberg, Goldstein and White Castle show up. Patton Oswalt & Booby Lee also make brief appearances. If you liked the other films I’m sure this will be your new favorite Christmas movie.
A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas Spoilers (highlight below to see spoilers)
There was a joke that no one in the theater got besides me. They were riding up an elevator and Adrian said if anyone asked he is Robert Pattinson’s acting coach then Harold told Kumar that they’ll say Kumar works for the White House and he responded by saying like any one would believe that. He currently is the Associate Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement and took off a few months to film this movie.
There is a scene kind of like in A Christmas Story when the boy gets his tongue stuck to the flagpole, well in this it’s Harold and it’s his penis and they show a penis. There was lack of female nudity though! Dammit!
