The follow up to 2008’s “Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay”, stars John Cho and Kal Penn – who left his job working for the Obama administration to film the movie – reprising their roles as the lovable duo Harold Lee and Kumar Patel. Neil Patrick Harris (The Smurfs) also returning, as the ladies-loving, drug-abusing Bizarro World version of himself. The film marks directing debut for Todd Strauss-Schulson, with the script written by franchise creators Jon Hurwitz & Hayden Schlossberg.
The new “Harold & Kumar” comedy picks up six years after the duo’s last adventure. After years of growing apart, Harold Lee (Cho) and Kumar Patel (Penn) 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.
