Review:

Let’s face it: 3-D has long overstayed its welcome. After a glut of 3-D releases over the past few years, most of the novelty is gone. So when I saw “A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas” I enjoyed on how much they had fun with the third dimension. It’s definitely the raunchiest movie I’ve ever seen in 3-D.***

This is the third film in the Harold and Kumar series, which has become this generation’s “Cheech and Chong”, and it is has hit-and-miss jokes like the previous two films. However, this film has more heart than the other two films. The film is set six years after their escape from Guantanamo Bay. Harold (John Cho) and Kumar (Kal Penn) are estranged from each other. However, when Kumar arrives on Harold’s doorstep with a mysterious package, he inadvertently burns down Harold’s father-in-law’s Christmas tree. The duo must race through New York City to find the perfect tree, but just like their last two adventures they stumble through obstacles at every single turn.***

The flimsy plot is supported by plenty of gags in here to keep you entertained and Neil Patrick Harris appears in another hilarious. There some funny scenes in the movies, but there are some scenes that just fall flat. Like I said before the 3-D makes this film enjoyable and it separates itself from other Christmas films. The disc also has the 2-D version, which is strangely longer than the 3-D version. The video is top notch as the images are clear, the depth is extraordinary, and the 3-D is well done as it doesn’t lose its effect from the big screen to the home market. The audio is just as good. There are so many crazy and random events going on like car chases, shootouts, and the Claymation scene, so the sound immerses you into the film. The dialogue is also clear, which is important for a comedy film.***

Special Features:

Unfortunately, the extras are a little light. There is the longer 2-D cut, which is strangely not in 3-D. There is a featurette called “Through the Haze with Tom Lennon”, which consist of some hilarious shorts. Next there is a making of-feature of the Claymation scene and a couple of deleted scenes. The Blu-ray disc also comes with an Ultraviolent Digital Copy. More studios are using Ultraviolent, but I still think it is a flawed system.***

Final Words:

“A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas” is hit-or-miss just like the previous films, but the 3-D helps it rise above these shortcomings. If you’ve made the jump to 3-D television, then I highly recommend it.***
