Harold and Kumar.png

A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas is a 2011 3D stoner comedy film directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson, written by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, based on the characters they created, and starring John Cho, Kal Penn, and Neil Patrick Harris. It is a sequel to the 2008 film Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay and the third installment in the Harold & Kumar film series. The film was released on November 4, 2011 and is the first installment of the series to be shown in 3D.

Synopsis

Kumar Patel is getting ready for the holidays by visiting Santa at the mall. Later on, the so called "Santa" sells him weed in the mall's parking garage. The story soon follows Harold Lee, now a successful businessman who works at a popular company. His assistant, Kenneth persuades him into buying a 3D television, and notes it can make "Avatar look Avatarded". When leaving the building, they are mobbed by angry citizens who throw eggs at them.

At Maria's Christmas party, Harold meets Maria's father. He explains to Harold, to accidentally ruined the Christmas tree, that he never had a perfect Christmas and he is counting on Harold to make this one the best for his daughter, Harold's girlfriend Maria. Harold reserves a tree that Kumar intentionally steals. The car with Kumar's tree on crashes and blows up on the highway. Harold argues with Kumar right before introducing them to their new friends. Harold, Kumar, Todd, Adrian and Todd's daughter drive to a party in New York to retrieve a Christmas tree at Adrian's partners party. It takes a turn for the worse and Harold and Kumar are forced to go to Broadway, where hopefully Neil Patrick Harris can get them one.

After a wild night of performing an Broadway, getting kidnapped and shooting Santa Claus, Harold and Kumar return to their regular lives. Harold invites Kumar to his Christmas party the following day. Later on in the evening, Kumar sneaks through Vanessa's window and explains he will stop smoking weed for the sake of her stillborn baby. Harold returns to Maria's house with her father waiting on the couch. The two argue until Harold explains he might not be the perfect son-in-law, but he is the perfect man for Maria. Maria's dad hesitates before accepting him into the Perez Family.

The film ends with Harold and Kumar celebrating Christmas with their families and Kumar having sex with Vanessa before her stomach goes fat on him. The end credits include the cast names followed by a snowflake with their picture in it.

Music

The original score is composed by William Ross, who has been nominated for a 2012 IFMCA Award for Best Score in a Comedy Film.
