Trivia

This film was originally set to be directed by series creators Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, but they were approached to relaunch the American Pie (1999) franchise three months before production.

Goofs

When the feces is thrown at the minivan's window it creates a linear shape. But the next time we see the window as Harold is getting dropped off at his house, we can see that the feces on the window is now a different shape, no longer linear. Now it's a round clump. Same amount is there, but just in a different shape. See more »

User Reviews

 
Plenty of silly, social comment and "oh no they didn't" laughs.
6 November 2011 | by (Arlington Virginia) – See all my reviews

If you liked the first two Harold & Kumar movies then you will likely like this one. If you have never seen a Harold & Kumar movie they are implausible story line, very irreverent, even crass, comedies that always break taboos.

This movie's story line is again unlikely and at times totally ridiculous, it's a total cut up comedy. You get the sense that the actors were having fun while they were filming. I laughed (and moaned) throughout the entire movie which I think is kind of the benchmark for this genre.

A lot of the humor uses or pokes fun at the 3D effects so see it in 3D if you can, it's a real treat, the effects are great. There was enough pot smoke and coke blown in you face that you could almost get high.
