Movie Info

Synopsis: After years of growing apart, Harold Lee and Kumar Patel have replaced each other with new friends and are preparing for their respective Yuletide celebrations. But when a mysterious package mistakenly arrives at Kumar’s door on Christmas Eve, his attempt to redirect it to Harold’s house ends with the “high grade” contents — and Harold’s father-in-law’s prize Christmas tree — going up in smoke. With his in-laws out of the house for the day, Harold decides to cover his tracks, rather than come clean. Reluctantly embarking on another ill-advised journey with Kumar through New York City, their search for the perfect replacement tree takes them through party heaven — and almost blows Christmas Eve sky high.

Todd Strauss-Schulson directs a cast that includes John Cho, Kal Penn, Neil Patrick Harris, Danny Trejo, Danneel Ackles and Elias Koteas.

Carl Wheeler - 10/7/2011

So I think to help EVERYONE out I plan to get lots of sleep and stock up on the Xanax so I don’t rip anyone’s head off. I hate Christmas mall traffic. That’s my biggest thing. I’m going to work on that each year. I am also going to let people cut in or out as THEY see fit in traffic. I also promise not to sound like Andrew Dice Clay in my car as they do so 🙂

robt4848 - 10/7/2011

By shopping early thereby oneless caron the road easing triffic on road & not takeing up space at the stores during the rush of the holadays.

1soccermom - 10/7/2011

I intend to spread holiday cheer by sending out xmas cards with a personal note in them sharing what my family has been involved in over the past year. I will also spread cheer by wishing everyone I meet a happy holiday!

Russ Tenale - 10/8/2011

I’m making the world a better place during the holidays/spreading holiday joy by being one less person mobbing the malls during Black Friday and keeping my cynical remarks and sentiments from being overheard around the snowflake-themed sweater-clad masses. I will also refrain from overtly pointing and laughing at those that have slid their SUV’s into the most unlikely of places off the road once some of that wintery Michigan weather hits.

Chris Giroux - 10/8/2011

I am so glad Harold & Kumar are back! We are spreading Holiday cheer by handing out bowls of Green Chile stew to our surrounding neighbors. No one around here has had it before and it makes a great warm treat on a cold day. We just moved here from NM. Also, can’t wait to use the new iOS5 application for sending greeting cards.

Electricblue717 - 10/8/2011

My plan is to spread HOLIDAY JOY to the WORLD (or at least around Souheatern Michigan by promoting Peace on Earth & GOODWILL towards MEN & WOMEN. Also, I wil pray that everybody has a SAFE Holiday Season with family & friends. Merry 3D Christmas & a Happy 3D New Year!!!

David301977 - 10/9/2011

Harold and Kumar are my favorite movies. I do all my christmas shopping in Novemeber so i am one less person in the stores come december :). I also love sending out gifts to all my family and friends and even coworkers! I am also planning on doing the kettle drive for the salvation army.

Brian Little - 10/9/2011

This holiday season, teach your children the true spirit of giving by asking them to choose one of their new or like-new toys to give to a child in need. The Toys for Tots foundation brings cheer, happiness, and hope to disadvantaged children who might otherwise be overlooked this holiday. Filling a child’s heart with happiness is sure to fill yours and your child’s, as well.

Peter Chandler - 10/9/2011

Starting December 1st I plan on quoting A Christmas Story at least once a day…..

“Now, I had heard that word at least ten times a day from my old man. He worked in profanity the way other artists might work in oils or clay. It was his true medium; a master. But, I chickened out and said the first name that came to mind. Schwartz!”

scutia - 10/9/2011

I’d like to be sure each person I know has a place to celebrate the holidays and not by themselves.

scutia2 - 10/9/2011

I’ll organize a Secret Santa at work so everyone will have fun not only getting a gift but having the joy of giving.

fanfabroj - 10/9/2011

This is the time of year of not only joy but stress for some who are less fortunate. I hope to be able have everyone I meet feel good about themselves no matter their circumstance.

fanfabroj1 - 10/9/2011

Just by having a smile on your own face you can have those around you feel better. I hope to keep a smile on my face no matter my inner mood. Have a great holiday season everyone. 🙂

slml1219 - 10/9/2011

We adopt a family in need each Christmas and have fun shopping for items on their wish list, wrapping the items and hoping we make the holidays a bit brighter for another family!!!

squanto - 10/9/2011

By buying funny or actually useful gifts, not just expensive ones, to reinforce the ideals of “the thought that counts.” We need to get back to that so the holidays don’t remain so consumer-oriented.

mtwaldman - 10/9/2011

Hang with my wife and son for the holidays…. Loved the 1st 2 movies!

Ryan Ravitz - 10/9/2011

Id celebrate every holiday with a moth celebration so everyone could come together as one

Damon Shaw - 10/9/2011

I plan on winning the lotto and making this the best Christmas ever for all that I know!

Susan McCaffrey - 10/10/2011

Head South to stay warm.

Raquel Jacobs - 10/11/2011

Every year my church runs a program where volunteers load up their cars with Thanksgiving Dinners and drive around and pass out meals to the homeless. I’ve been doing it for a few years now and this year is no exception.

ThatPJ - 10/11/2011

I would make sure everyone was supplied with lemon drops and Christmas presents. And if they were naughty, poop will suffice.

Debb - 10/11/2011

I will work at a soup kitchen with my daughter and her friends. We have wanted to do this for some time and now we will get a chance. We will serve food to the homeless in December. We also participate in any clothing drives that her high school provides. Christmas is truly about giving.

ComptonAssTony - 10/11/2011

I would lie and say that i’ll be working at a soup kitchen this winter, but i’m not going to be. If I have any extra change in my pockets, I always donate to the Salvation Army. When my work has a toy bin for underprivaleged kids, I’ll buy something and put it in there, I always do.

Most of all, I’ll be in the christmas spirit, I’m not going to care about myself, I’ll care about the people around me.

Jayme Barouch - 10/11/2011

I will sing Michael Jacksons’ Heal The World to everyone in line waiting to see H&K 3D! That will give everybody the ultimate holiday experience!

Craiggy Ramone - 10/11/2011

I’m going to take my rather non-practicing religion self to midnight mass with my girlfriend and spend our first Christmas together with her and her family. Will very likely do some sort of cooking-ish duties as well. 🙂 I’m ALSO going to brighten someone else’s time with taking them to this movie with me as well, PLEASE let me win!!!

sschluss - 10/11/2011

Starting November 1, I pledge to stay inside (unless, of course if I win these passes) and stay out of everyone’s way as they rush to the malls, their holiday parties and work functions. I will be completely out of every crazy person’s way as they rush to the “next thing”….Nobody will know the good I am doing, but that’s o.k.

Olivia Hardeen - 10/12/2011

I will string together like WAAAYYY too many of those LED Christmas lights that I’ve had lying around to provide some visually pleasing displays keeping in the spirit of the holidays.

zapdog - 10/13/2011

I pledge to call & visit my mom more often. Not only in Nov,Dec,Jan but every month & week! The little things mean alot!

dahouse01 - 10/13/2011

I plan to give secret gifts to my co-workers and friends

Tess Craft - 10/14/2011

I plan to minimize the damage done by my Grinch-y/Scrooge-y dislike of the holidays by staying in and drinking heavily.

canadianflag - 10/17/2011

Our Bible Study supports a family at Christmas. We provide a gift basket of food, gifts for the children and hope for the coming year. It’s the time of year to think of others less fortunate and appreciate what you have and what you can do to make a difference.

Stealth_51 - 10/18/2011

My name is Erik Bultz, and I am going helping the salvation army this holiday season for my second year, by being a bell ringer alomst 3-4 days of the week from november 1st- the end of December, standing outside a store and collecting donations for the less fortunate that cant really afford the holidays. I like making people happy and putting a smile on their face. I plan on taking a special girl with meet to the screening to show her a good time and what a great person i am. Harold and Kumar RULES!!!

karnettas2002 - 10/18/2011

I am going to volunteer at the women’s shelter and try and spread cheer throughout.

Thunder - 10/18/2011

Our family doesn’t do Christmas presents anymore instead we give throughout the year to various charities. Whether it be putting change in the Salvation Army pot,Toys for Tots, Gleaners Food Drive, Coat Drives, Stuff a Bus with school supplies,American Cancer Society or whatever is needed to help we are there. That is our pledge to spread joy.

Akbar Juster - 10/18/2011

Christmas is a time for Harold and Kumar to rejoin in their mischief. It should be fun to see what new things they come up with.

sirkillalotic - 10/20/2011

I plan on having a nice Christmas with my girlfriends parents, who are from Oklahoma!

Brian Blottie - 10/25/2011

Every year we donate cans, coats, and toys to the less fortunate. That won’t change this year, and with a little extra money, there will be a little extra help.

Stacey Cook - 10/26/2011

I am gonna spread holiday cheer by bringing cocktails to my neighbors while singing drunkenly at their doorstep!

moviebuff1212 - 10/26/2011

Spend it with family!

kecia829 - 10/26/2011

Every year at my job we adopt families that are in need they give us a list of what they want and we go and buy so that they will have a happy x-mas even though the mom really can’t afford it.

pointe - 10/26/2011

I hope to be going to homeless shelter and celebrate a holiday party for the moms & their children with food, entertainment, games & presents donated by the volunteers. It’ll be my 15th year of participation.
