Six years after their last adventure, stoner pals Harold (John Cho) and Kumar (Kal Penn) have grown apart and found new friends. As each is busy making holiday preparations, a mysterious package mistakenly arrives on Kumar's doorstep. Unfortunately, Kumar's attempt to redirect the package to Harold goes up in smoke -- along with a prize Christmas tree belonging to Harold's father-in-law. The pair's journey across New York City to find a replacement tree threatens to blow Christmas Eve sky-high.

Audience Reviews for A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas

  • Apr 30, 2013
    In the days leading up to Christmas, Kumar(Kal Penn) receives two gifts. The first is that his girlfriend Vanessa(Danneel Harris) is pregnant. The second is actually for his friend Harold(John Cho) who he has not seen in a couple of years and whose wife Maria(Paula Garces) is ovulating while nearly all of his in-laws are visiting him for the holidays. Said visit not getting off to a good start when his father-in-law(Danny Trejo) voices his disapproval of Harold's faux Christmas tree. It may seem strange for a movie as profane as "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas" to nail the true meaning of Christmas, but that it does, in its own goofy and affable way. Along the same line of thought, it is also about love, friendship and how spending quality time with loved ones is more important than material items.(That having been said, I wouldn't mind one of those Wafflebots. Just as long as they are not bent on world domination.) And just as much, the movie has its own unique way of exploring identity, upending any number of stereotypes, especially casting Danny Trejo very much against type. Plus, it does a great job of showing 3D to be the cheap gimmick it is by flinging all manner of objects at the screen.

    I thought it was better than the 2nd film but not as good as the first one. Neil Patrick Harris is hilarious as usual. It was great seeing Danny Trejo in the film.

    The first H & K was the best. With each sequel they make, it just goes downhill.
