An extended bit featuring a strung-out toddler borders on offensive and isn't amusing in the slightest, so much of the picture leaving me as cold as an Arctic winter.

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

A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas's slacker posturing belies a rare comedic rigour. It takes brains to be this thick.
December 6, 2011
For all its pretensions to bad taste, this is surprisingly heartwarming festive fare.
December 5, 2011
There are a lot of laughs lurking within the shiny 3D wrapping and snow-covered silliness.

Just have fun with the movie, embrace it with premature Christmas cheer.

Cho and Penn's genial rapport, and the picturesque three-dimensioning of plumes of pot smoke and cocaine flurries? Sure. But those pleasures are fleeting -- gone, if you will, with the weed.

More or less defines the word "superfluous."

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.

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.

If there's a complaint to be made, it's that the humor could be less scattershot.

Of course it's offensive and crude. It's also hilarious at times.
November 5, 2011
It hasn't quite jumped the doobie yet, but the shtick is getting tired.

In its shaggy, pleasure-bombed, '80s-meets-2011 way, A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas is a deft and generous comedy...
November 4, 2011
This third movie, a proudly unambitious buddy comedy, brings the franchise back to home turf, both geographically and thematically.

Harold & Kumar is all about Cho and Penn, who make the doofus duo into likable, harmless, upbeat characters who happen to be blasted a good deal of the time. 3D Christmas is proudly ridiculous stuff.
November 4, 2011
It's one of those comedies in which if one joke falls flat for you, it's mere seconds before the writers are trying something different. Every time the film threatens to collapse, the sheer manic nature of the piece saves it.
November 4, 2011
3D Christmas pushes the envelope of tastelessness while maintaining a cheery holiday glow.
November 4, 2011
The resulting hodge-podge of low-brow gags and winking humor is surprisingly spirited, and has the distinct advantage of not being as immediately dated as half of the humor in Guantanamo already is.
