Goofs

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 »

Finally a 3D Movie that Entertains!
7 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

I have an affection for raunchy comedies and I love 3D so this marriage in "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas" definitely filled voids in places where most movies have been lacking as of late.

First and foremost, the movie was entertaining throughout with no dull moments. All the characters were great and Neil Patrick Harris was hysterical. Although some might think this film could be considered lowbrow, it really isn't because it was well written and the situations (as absurd as they are) work to even satisfy an intelligent viewer with a good time.

The 3D experience was better in this movie than most I've seen in years. It was consistent throughout, no eyestrain, very clean, and had some nice out-of-screen effects that paired well with the comedy.

As morally and politically incorrect this movie is; it ultimately does have a good message with a lot of heart and actually put me into the Holiday spirit! I know; I can't even believe I just stated that but sadly it's true. I'm definitely jaded, but then again aren't we all by now? Definitely a must see in 3D.
