A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas
Following years of growing apart, Harold Lee (Cho) and Kumar Patel (Penn) have replaced each other with new friends and are preparing for their respective Yuletide celebrations. But when a mysterious package mistakenly arrives at Kumar's door on Christmas Eve, his attempt to redirect it to Harold's house ends with the "high grade" contents-and Harold's father-in-law's prize Christmas tree-going up in smoke. With his in-laws out of the house for the day, Harold decides to cover his tracks, rather than come clean. Reluctantly embarking on another ill-advised journey… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"For all its pretensions to bad taste, this is surprisingly heartwarming festive fare."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"This film will stuff your stocking with profane, perverse, politically incorrect glee."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"I was glad to see them again, but it's probably time for them to go get their lives fully together now"
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"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."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"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."
‑ Eric Goldman, IGN Movies
"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."
‑ Dave McGinn, Globe and Mail
"If there's a complaint to be made, it's that the humor could be less scattershot."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"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."
‑ Kristal Cooper, We Got This Covered
"A funny, memorable romp through metafictional sequel land, and a pleasingly Christmasy grossout film to boot."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
"Funny in spots, but the story and characters have almost nowhere to go. The direction feels aimless and crafted like a DTV film. In other words, this is an enormously disappointing threequel."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"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."
‑ Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York
"Of course it's offensive and crude. It's also hilarious at times."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com
"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."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"What started as a beautiful one-off, extended in a pretty decent sequel, has now grown gray at the edges."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"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."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
