Tagline: Christmas comes prematurely

Plot: Six years have elapsed since Guantanamo Bay, leaving Harold and Kumar estranged from one another with very different families, friends and lives. But when Kumar arrives on Harold's doorstep during the holiday season with a mysterious package in hand, he inadvertently burns down Harold's father-in-law's beloved Christmas tree. To fix the problem, Harold and Kumar embark on a mission through New York City to find the perfect Christmas tree, once again stumbling into trouble at every single turn.

My rating: 7.5/10

Will I watch it again? Yes.

OK, so after the ho-hum OK HAROLD AND KUMAR ESCAPE FROM GUANTANAMO BAY (2008) the boys are back and funnier than ever, AND in 3D.  The jokes are better than the previous two outings and the story is more than just a collection of gags, not that I need a story mind you.  It certainly helps.  The bit with the baby accidentally exposed to drugs was hilarious and Neil Patrick Harris is even more so. I love how they explained his escape from death from the previous film.  Classic.  I'll watch this film before I see either of the other two.  Here's hoping they'll keep this franchise going.
