Review: Once again, Harold and Kumar bring it with more completely original ideas that made me laugh like a maniac several times throughout the movie. These guys once again prove that anything can be funnier if you add weed and nudity. And the fact that Kal Penn can still make these movies and maintain a respectable reputation at the White House is hilarious enough as it is.
As good as this one was, however, it didnt really live up to the expectations that were set by Guantanamo Bay. Maybe its because when I saw that one, it was in a packed theatre at 10 pm with a bunch of stoners laughing their guts out at every single joke. As unappealing as that sounds (I wasnt stoned during this movie), its those types of things that make movies THAT much better if you ask me. Laughing my butt off with 30 or more people, including a few random 14 year olds who needed to pretend they were with me in order to get in (true story) just wasnt the same.
Something that really bugged me was how NPH was barely used in this one. Although his picture actually made it poster this time, he wasnt really in it as much as I hoped. Come to think of it, many of the old jokes from White Castle and Guantanamo Bay werent used at all.
And whether or not it was the theatre I went to, the 3D was disgraceful. I almost suggest seeing the 2D version: your eyes wont hurt, youll save a few bucks, and you really wont miss anything.
But even though it may not have lived up to the previous ones, Harold and Kumar prove once again that as far as epic stoner comedies go, they cant be beat. This one left me sore from laughing, and with an itch to see more (even though, once again, I wasnt stoned). I strongly suggest you get a big group to go to this one; the more laughs around you, the funnier this movie will be.
And of course, theres nothing like getting into the Christmas spirit a little early. Especially if you celebrate Christmas like these guys.
