In the beginning, the TV Kenneth gets for Harold's father-in-law is a Sharp 3D TV. However, later the TV the family is watching on appears to be an early Samsung LCD TV, with the large circle on the bezel. They are also wearing passive 3D glasses, which only LG TVs starting in 2011 would use. Sharp uses active 3D technology in their 3D televisions. See more »


Kenneth Park: This is a Sharp 52" Aquos Quattron TV with state-of-the-art 3D technology that makes Avatar look Avatar-ded.
Harold: I don't know. Hasn't the whole 3D thing jumped shark by now?
Kenneth Park: Mr. Lee, you don't understand. This is the best 3D you've ever seen. It's gonna be amazing!
[Kenneth gives two thumbs up to the audience]
Harold: Who are you looking at?

3D part of the gag
11 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Harold & Kummar movies are mercifully free of hypocrisy, with no taboo left unviolated. This is not a film you take your mother to (let her see it by herself). Everyone is criticizing the 3D as gratuitous, but it was part of the humor, exaggerated like in Piranha 3D. I usually despise 3D as a pointless distraction; this was a rare occasion when it seemed to fit. Pot smoke wafting out towards the audience--what better use of 3D? How could anyone complain about gratuitous 3D given this film's other excesses? One could similarly call the clay animation sequence gratuitous, but it was brilliant! It seems to me that these H&K movies contain some serious messages on drugs, race, and other social issues rolled up with the crude humor.
