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 »

Quotes

Todd: Oh, great. Now we're getting tinkled on.
Harold: It's just urine. It'll wash out.
Todd: Oh, Harry. Tinkled on the windshield. That is officially the grossest thing that has ever happened to me.

Harold and Kumar make decorating a Christmas tree a wild and dangerous adventure
13 November 2011 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I think part of the reason the first movie worked so well is because going to White Castle is, relatively, a very simple, ordinary trip. But when it's Harold (John Cho) and Kumar (Kal Penn) it becomes a very wild adventure. I didn't enjoy the second one as much because escaping from Guantanamo Bay wouldn't be an easy task for anybody. For this third movie, Harold and Kumar are back to turn a routine errand into a hair-raising, hazardous experience. Harold has to decorate a Christmas tree.

But when Kumar comes over and accidentally burns down the tree, they then have to find a new one, steal it from a drug-lord gangster thug, try to not rape his daughter, crash a musical production of The Nutcracker, and limit the number of people they shoot and drug (to only Santa Claus and a baby).

The 3D is of course a gimmick. They know that; we know that. It involves joints coming out of the screen and eggs, blood, and guts. It is as juvenile and pointless as you can get. But that is the point.

The jokes are of course offensive. But, again, that's the point. It makes it okay when the out-and-proud Neil Patrick Harris makes gay jokes, or when Cho and Penn make racial jokes.

I enjoyed the journey that they take in "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas". Every time the baby found a new drug to imbibe, or Kumar smoked another joint, I laughed. It's the type of humour that has made the franchise so successful.
