MediaStinger: "A Christmas movie four days after Halloween? Sure, why not? Especially when the other wide release this weekend is the awful-looking comedy Tower Heist. The trailer for A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas wasn’t drastically better, but at least it promised sex, drugs, cock ‘n’ pole (okay, maybe that one’s not such a good thing), and most importantly, the return of this generation’s favorite minority doobie duo. Blazing another trail of high times, Harold & Kumar‘s new bud-dy comedy threequel is comparable to their Escape From Guantanamo Bay, particularly in wild hilarity and random hysteria."
