The Movie

John Cho and Kal Penn reprise their title roles in “A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas,” which picks up six years following their last adventure.

After years of growing apart, Harold Lee (John Cho) and Kumar Patel (Kal 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.

The third installment is the first to highlight the guys’ mishaps in 3D. The 2004 cult hit “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle” launched the franchise, followed by “Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay.”

It would not be a “Harold & Kumar” film without Neil Patrick Harris, who returns along with Paula Garcés, Danneel Harris, Eddie Kaye Thomas, David Krumholtz and Bobby Lee. Joining the ensemble are Tom Lennon, Danny Trejo, Elias Koteas, Amir Blumenfeld, Patton Oswalt, Richard Riehle, Jordan Hinson, John Hoogenakker, Jake Johnson, Yasen Payankov and David Burtka.

Todd Strauss-Schulson helms, marking his major feature film directorial debut. Academy Award®-winner Greg Shapiro (“The Hurt Locker”) returns as producer and Mandate President Nathan Kahane, Nicole Brown, Richard Brener, Michael Disco, and Samuel J. Brown are executive producing. The screenplay is by Jon Hurwitz & Hayden Schlossberg, who also served as co-producers, along with Kelli Konop and Jonathan McCoy.
