While there's no mistaking a Harold & Kumar movie for something that's going win an Oscar, movie fans shouldn't be so quick to dismiss these 21st century incarnations of Cheech and Chong as purely shallow entertainment.

Falls short of being a holiday classic or an enjoyable 3D experience - meaning, in the end, it's little more than another Harold and Kumar film.

A funny, memorable romp through metafictional sequel land, and a pleasingly Christmasy grossout film to boot.

Cho and Penn continue to be a likable pair who work well off each other and it's fun to spend time with them, even in the movie's off moments.

The "let's find a Christmas tree" plot is more in the vein of the original than the outlandish Guantanamo Bay plot was, and the Cho/Penn chemistry remains charming.

A raunchy and religiously-incorrect roller coaster ride for the very-open minded, not to be mistaken for one of those sentimental Christmas yarns you usually see during the holiday season.

They keep the tone just right, and the strong, external humor by original writers Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg sustains it.

Not nearly as subversive as it purports to be, but fittingly witty and wintry nonetheless.

Although the humour is patchy, when the laughs hit they hit hard, slyly sending-up holiday season conventions...

A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas's slacker posturing belies a rare comedic rigour. It takes brains to be this thick.

It all remains on the light-hearted, harmless and inoffensive side despite bad-taste gags and gory Yuletide violence.

December 7, 2011
Enjoyable, occasionally inventive and frequently funny stoner comedy threequel that succeeds thanks to a witty script, loveable characters and winning performances from its two leads.

For all its pretensions to bad taste, this is surprisingly heartwarming festive fare.

There are a lot of laughs lurking within the shiny 3D wrapping and snow-covered silliness.

I went in expecting: a stupid Christmas movie that had way too much fun being egregiously in 3D...and I got that.

The laughs may not be as strong as they were the first time, and the sense of discovering something fantastically illicit may have faded to mellow, familiar charms that come with the occasional giggle fit, but that's life as a stoner comedy.

The film's aim at being shocking is generally undercut by how cheerfully foolish it all is.

Funnier than Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay, but for all the offensiveness, it's family-values to the core.

It contains the mother of all blunts, which, wouldn't ya know, burns down the Christmas tree that Harold's glowering father-in-law grew from a sapling.
