A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas Reviews
Harold and Kumar's Christmas movie is silly, if uneven, fun. While it mocks 3-D technology, it also makes relatively fresh use of it and qualifies as the most ambitious of the trio of films.
While not as funny as the original, 2004's "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle," it's still a modest improvement over the 2008 sequel, "Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay."
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.
By now, Cho and Penn have got their Asian-American Abbott-and-Costello routine down so cold, they're a pleasure to spend time with even if the proceedings are less than inspired.
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.
