Starring: Kal Penn, John Cho, Thomas Lennon, Amir Blumenfeld, Paula Garces, Danny Trejo
Harold (Cho) & Kumar (Penn) have entertained audiences in the past when they went to White Castle and Guantanamo Bay. The two best friends perpetually landed themselves in trouble with Harold trying to figure a more reasonable way out and Kumar choosing something more radical. The two friends have now parted ways with Harold tired of Kumar's continued immaturity and not being able to accept adulthood. He has settled down with Maria (Garces) and Maria's family decides to drop in for Christmas. Her father Carlos Perez (Trejo) has entrusted Harold with the task of decorating a Christmas tree that he has been growing for years for this special occasion. Kumar is still spending time like a college graduate, smoking weed all day long but things suddenly change when he finds a package with Harold's name on his doorstep. Not having seen him in all these years he decides to pay him a visit and give the package. Kumar, ever-famous for his blunders, puts Carlos' tree on fire and the two now need to look for a new tree and decorate it before he returns home. The movies have consistently focused on the duo and their misfortune events but what made them famous and everyone loved was the slapstick and enjoyable humour. Penn, as usual, brings in all the sex and stupid humour which seemed to lack finesse and character. The movie doesn't make you laugh like the previous movies, gets extremely boring during unwanted melodramatic scenes and lacks a different plot. Fails to live up to the brands name and a big let down for fans.
Thumbs up: Very few selected scenes that have the Harld & Kumar essence
Thumbs down: Horrible humour, extremely boring at times
