I was glad to see them again, but it's probably time for them to go get their lives fully together now
| Original Score: C+
Seriously, someday you guys are going to sober up, catch this on video and wonder what gave you the giggles all those White Castle runs ago.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
More or less defines the word "superfluous."
| Original Score: B-
The dialogue isn't snappy while the physical comedy is predictable
| Original Score: 2/5
It's mostly unfunny, stupid and juvenile.
It's not that I was particularly offended; it's that I didn't laugh very much.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
The 3-D only makes the general not-funniness that much closer.
It has some big laughs but not enough of them.
| Original Score: 2/4
Thank goodness for NPH. His appearance wakes up the film and makes things fun for a while.
| Original Score: 5/10
Predictable stoner mischief is less cute when it features men in their late-30s.
| Original Score: D+
What started as a beautiful one-off, extended in a pretty decent sequel, has now grown gray at the edges.
Offers rolling-paper-thin female characters. Ethnic stereotypes are lazily snowballed at us. And it has the usual boring, hokey spirit-of-the-season moments.
The 'more of the same' mandate may satisfy fans of middling marijuana jokes, but can't really justify a third film that's visually ambitious but comedically burnt out.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
I'm sad to report that Harold and Kumar have lost much of whatever it was that made them so great in the first place.
This third film in the Harold & Kumar franchise is inordinately jacked up with visual effects and peppy holiday music, but nothing can disguise the fact that this series has run out of steam.
I guess if you roll out enough jokes, the odds are with you to get some laughs, at least. Just some laughs are not enough for "A Very H&K 3D Christmas."
During the holiday season, it's joints to the world!
Want to make manchildren laugh? Blow some weed smoke out at them in 3D. Call something 'Avatarded' as a compliment. Get a baby high. Throw in a subplot about a 'hot virgin I met on the Internet' who's horny for a manchild...
For me, this was the best 'Harold & Kumar' film yet. Unfortunately, the film still comes off as too juvenile in its humor to have pleased this adult for very long.
