Happy caroling and festivizing, happy eating and shopping and traveling and all kinds of stuff I can’t really include here, of all places, but given where we are and what we’re all doing here, happy movie watching and celebrating the true magic in our lives – at the movies. If you’re going to sit down and watch a Christmas movie this time of the year, there are many, many choices. From funny and to poignant, silly to irreverent and everything in between. You could do a lot worse than “A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas”, 2D or 3D or otherwise Blu-ray or not. I reviewed this one earlier this year while writing for Warner Bros. (ok, one more shameless me mentioning) back in May, and since I haven’t actually reblogged anything, I figured this seemed apropos, what with all the mistletoe and what have you. If you haven’t seen this one or any of the other films, you really are in for a good time. Sure, it is heavy on the stoner themes and excessive jocularity (I’ve always wanted to use that word since first hearing it in Mash) but all in good spirit and well intentions. Actually you’ll find a lot of interesting themes dealing with race and identity, friendship and maturity, topics you’d be hard pressed to find from Apatow or Sandler these days. So if you’re going to turn on a movie you haven’t seen or maybe one you have, consider a little this one because a little Harold and Kumar goes a long way.
