Well, it’s way too early to be thinking of Christmas, even if the temperatures have dropped to the single digits, but I guess they didn’t wanna ruin the holidays by putting this one out on Christmas Day. This is probably the silliest, most offensively amazing Harold and Kumar film yet, featuring cameos from the likes of Patton Oswalt, Danny Trejo, Bobby Lee, RZA and Neil Patrick Harris reprising his role as a crack-smoking mack daddy. (Yes, he got shot in the last movie. He came back to life, haha.) The film also introduces Amir Blumenfeld as Kumar’s dorky new neighbour along with Tom Lennon as Harold’s effeminate Wall Street buddy–and we can’t forget Baby Ava, the young daughter of Lennon’s character, who takes more drugs in the film than Charlie Sheen has for breakfast.
It seems that a few years have passed since our heroes’ last adventure, and they’ve gone their separate ways. Harold now works on Wall Street, married his dream girl, and owns a house in the suburbs, whereas Kumar apparently failed a drug test, lost his job, got dumped by his girlfriend, and lives in the same old apartment. But when a Christmas present (a massive doob) is delivered to Harold at his old address, the two friends get together for a wild and wacky adventure that includes beer pong, Claymation, and dancing in a Christmas musical on Broadway starring Neil Patrick Harris.
Harris is hilarious as himself again, and they even bring in his husband, David Burtka, in a scene where they kiss for the cameras, then behind closed doors reveal that the gay thing is only an act. As it turns out, Burtka is really his drug dealer, heh heh.
And yes, there’s a whole lotta smokin’ going on. Even Santa Claus tokes up on a candy-cane-striped bong in the closing sequence. Don’t take your kids to this movie, or you’ll have a lotta explaining to do…
Do take your drug dealer, and bring a massive doob. This shit’s gonna be amazing when you’re stoned! (And then you can eat flavoured popcorn afterwards…)
