A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas (2011)

This shouldn’t take too long.  If you’ve seen the first two Harold & Kumar movies, you kind of know exactly what sort of movie you’re in store for with the third installment.  I didn’t have a chance to check it out before Christmas 2011 so you’re getting my review now.  It’s a fairly festive Christmas-themed movie, while also introducing new characters into the H&K universe, and also revisiting old familiar faces.

If you’re seeing it in 3D, well congratulations, you’ll be getting an additional dimension of humour that is merely hinted at in the 2D version.  That’s the inherent problem with intended 3D movies, when you’re relying on that gimmick and the gimmick isn’t available, the movie suffers for it.  As a rarely-partaker, I’m sure there’s loads of “pot humour” that is gut-bustingly funny as well, but for me it just garnered an unknowing nod of acknowledgment if that makes any sense at all.

Oh yeah, and if you didn’t see the end credits of H&K2, Neil Patrick Harris (Neil Patrick Harris, the distinction needs to be made) survived and shows up for his trademark scene destroying with awesome appearance.  This time he brings his husband, David Burtka (David Burtka) along for the fun, and that whole sequence was easily the most entertaining of the entire movie.  Oh and Waffle-Bot was fucking awesome.
