As it says in the title this Harold & Kumar movie is specifically made for the 3D experience and this fact somewhat diminishes its value when watching it at home in regular 2D (are they going to wind up with just the D (or even just the T(ip))). I understand how some of the gags and scenes are great and very funny in the theater but when you’re watching the regular version at home, they seem to be redundant and actually annoying (mostly because you’re imagining how it would be awesome to see this in 3D). As a fan of  transcredible exploits of Harold & Kumar I must say that this is the weakest movie in the trilogy. While White Castle was phenomenal and Guantanamo Bay awesome, 3D Christmas seems too milky and over-stretched. But this in no means stopped me from getting high and laughing at the jokes. Introduction of new characters (Danny Trejo, Thomas Lennon, Wafflebot) was a great idea, and it created a more dynamic environment. Also I loved the utter disregard for regulations, as in previous movies, here you can see small children on weed and cocaine and a ton of dirty jokes, just pure pleasure and fun for the whole family.

Six years have passed since Harold and Kumar escaped Guantanamo Bay and their lives are much different now. Well at least Harold’s is as he is now living with his wife Maria in their new house, while Kumar is still living the stoner life. They haven’t seen each other in a long time, but that’s about to change as an unknown person drops a package for Harold at Kumar’s place. Kumar decides to take the package to Harold’s place where everything is set for a perfect Christmas evening because Harold is trying to impress Marias father (Danny Trejo). This will prove quite difficult as Kumar accidentally sets fire to their perfect Christmas tree, and now they must roam the city in a search of a perfect replacement tree…
