Comedy - Like the first two films in the series, this is a vulgar and profane
comedy aimed at a young adult male audience, especially the college
crowd. There is constant profanity, drug use and humor, violence,
sexual content. Some may especially be offended by some drug humor
involving a baby. Fans of the stars and the series should be
PROFANITY: Well over 30 F-words; 26 S-words; 1 GD; a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: Sex and related nudity. VIOLENCE: Bloody shootings and killings. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, including by a baby. ACTION: Chases and explosions. COMEDY: Banter and wisecracks, often suggestive; drug humor with a
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average The nature of the slapstick owes a great deal to Cheech and Chong, but somehow the magic energy between Harold and Kumar has faded.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average 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. It also pokes fun at tired holiday movie conventions.
Washington PostFull Review Above Average It's silly, silly stuff, and the movie knows it. But if you can't laugh at yourself, how can you expect anyone else to?

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 9 moviegoers:
We aren't able to collect very many reviews for this type of movie since the primary audience is young and male and not much on filling out a review. Plus, there wasn't hardly anyone going to this movie, locally anyway.
It appears these few reviews aren't going to be of much help since a couple loved it but most rated it low to very low. I would recommend "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas" ONLY to you if you're a very strong fan of this type of movie and these stars.
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 with Kumar, through New York City, their search for the perfect replacement tree takes them through party heaven—and almost blows Christmas Eve sky high.
