A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas (2011)

Director:

Todd Strauss-Schulson

Starring:

Kal Penn

John Cho

Neil Patrick Harris

Plot:

Six years after their Guantanamo Bay adventure, stoner buds Harold Lee and Kumar Patel cause a holiday fracas by inadvertently burning down Harold’s father-in-law’s prize Christmas tree.

Review:

This is the first movie my husband and I saw in 3D and it did not disappoint. Even now, watching on a non-3D TV it’s still awesome.

Boobs, check.

Penis, check.

Tons of drugs, check.

Seriously, what more could you want in a Christmas movie?

Harold and Kumar have drifted apart but a holiday miracle will bring them back into each other’s lives when they need each other the most. It’s beautiful.

I’m not a stoner, but I highly recommend these movies to anyone that loves crude humor. This is one of those rare series that each successive movie gets better.

5/5

Side note: Totally worth $2.99 on Amazon Instant Video

Plot:

Two detectives with different views on the world team up and using cynicism, guile and deception, they clean up the streets of Battle Creek.

Review:

Netflix recommended this to me after I finished Mysteries of Laura. It was short only thirteen episodes and I immediately wanted more. It was a nice procedural that wasn’t too light but didn’t make me want to curl up in a ball scared to leave the house. The characters were interesting and fun, there was also a nice bit of humor.

Battle Creek was canceled, so unless some website saves it there won’t be any new episodes. The overall story arc is pretty much resolved so you’re not going to be left with a huge cliffhanger. I would recommend watching it if you’re looking for a good, short fix.

4/5
