A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas
The Franchise is Tired by Now.
There's very little of the fresh, slacker comedy that made the first film of this franchise so likable. Instead, by now, the filmmakers seem to be going through the motions - hitting on the typical pot, dick, and Neil Patrick Harris jokes they think their fanbase expects. Cho and Penn are likable and NPH is always awesome, but the comedy here wears thin. The induction of 3-D and the Christmas-themed setting don't really add to much - just more frills to capture our brief attention span - but the heart of the film is tired.
