Harold and Kumar's Christmas movie features Claymation, NPH, Kelly Ripa

04.14.2010

HAROLD AND KUMAR 3 is now A VERY HAROLD AND KUMAR CHRISTMAS since last we checked in, and along with the holiday-themed title, we now have a plot to go along with it.

Vulture got their hands on the script, and learned the major reason why the film is probably going to be shot in 3D. But first, the opening. Minor spoilers ahead, if you really want to be in the dark about the plot of a HAROLD AND KUMAR sequel.

Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg's screenplay (dated January 22, 2010) finds Harold and Kumar in their 30s and no longer on speaking terms (at script's beginning, it's been a long time since they've seen each other). Harold is a married, drug-free, Wall Street executive who lives in a home that looks "more like a house in a Nancy Myers movie than the man-cave he shared with Kumar"; Kumar is single, still lives in the man-cave, and has recently had his medical license suspended for smoking marijuana. The pair are reunited when a package intended for Harold arrives at their old apartment and Kumar delivers it to his house. While there, in a pot-related mishap, Kumar burns down a Christmas tree grown special by Harold's father-in-law, requiring the two to strike out in search of a replacement.

Things escalate from there, and the film features the inevitable return of Neil Patrick Harris, who hosts a TV Christmas special with Kelly Ripa. There’s also a decently long Claymation sequence in the film, which has Harold and Kumar tripping off of psychotropic eggnog, being chased by an evil snowman down the streets of Manhattan. This scene is the major reason they want to shoot the thing in 3D, to the delight of stoners everywhere.

Speaking for uh, friends, anyone who’s ever smoked before a 3D feature knows it’s a very different experience and it usually makes the movie about 100x more epic. With all the hate for 3D nowadays, this is the first genre of film where I can actually say, “yeah, that makes sense.”

Extra Tidbit: So, if NPH is playing himself in these movies, is he still a crazy womanizer? Because, you know

NPH came out before the last H&K movie, so I'm pretty sure, yeah.

Hello Again

I am glad there is another Harold and Kumar movie, hopefully follows the same style and feeling as the first one. The plot of this third adventure seems cool.

Cool stuff. The only reaosn to hate 3D is quickie conversions and throwing 3D into a movie that doesn't really need it. Honestly, if you're happy that this is in 3D then you should be happy most of the other films announced in 3D.
Damn 3D snobbery!

I don't know what you guys are talking about...

Two stoners going out on Christmas trying to find a tree sounds hilarious. I can see them trying to chop down one in the forest and an angry squirrel or raccoon attacking them.

Once again... hilarious.

Yes, Kal Penn is returning. It was recently announced that he left the Obama administration and is going to be in the new Harold and Kumar movie.

That's all fine and dandy, but I have only one slight, wee baby of a question.

IS KAL PENN RETURNING OR NOT?!?!

His presence is the make or break of my interest in this.

So all the shit Kumar had to go through to get his chick in the last movie was all for nothing. Kinda sucks and quite frankly, this feels like a step backward after the major jump in thematic elements in the second movie. Then again, I should probably stop reading so much into this. It is a stoner comedy after all.

It will be kind of weird now. It will be hard not to see Dr. Kutner from House and Agent Noh from Flash Forward.

I'm down, I like that they moved time ahead but it kinda sucks that the main theme of this one is the same as all the other ones. I hope Harold goes back to smoking weed.

I love Harold and Kumar and I love Christmas movies, so this is definitely something I am very interested in seeing. Hopefully, this will be a great ending to the HAK trilogy.

They have to replace a fucking Christmas tree? My god, what happened to this series? The first was so great, and then it was a downhill slope.
