A VERY HAROLD & KUMAR 3D CHRISTMAS – These films are little more than a Neil Patrick Harris delivery method as far as I’m concerned. There’s nothing terribly sophisticated about the humor, but I wasn’t expecting anything all that deep. It’s still funny, aside from the handful of easy drug and race jokes that could surely only be meant for the recently-toked that were providing the extra sensory input for the audience.
This is one of the few times when I’ve seen a ‘flattened’ 3D movie that I vaguely regret not seeing it in the bigger theatre with the glasses. There were a handful of gags where the 3D effects were obviously being toyed with.
The whole nervous father / drugged up baby gag is one of my favorite bits in the film. Well, and WAFFLE BOT, of course. I love WAFFLE BOT.
Harold: I shot Santa Clause in the face. He’s real, and I shot him in the face.
Harold: I dont know, hasn’t the whole 3D thing jumped the shark by now?
Another movie with what looks like 100% CGI smoke. This is fine if you want to do an effect of some sort, but it’s just short of believable… I’ve noticed this in a number of recent films, and it’s a bit jarring. Though, I suppose the target demographic of this film would have been high enough to see the 3D elements without the glasses…
