It is the third film in the “Harold & Kumar” series, following “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle” and “Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay.”
The film takes place six years after the events of the previous film, with Harold (John Cho) and Kumar (Kal Penn) having grown apart and moved on with their lives. However, when a package intended for Harold is accidentally delivered to Kumar, the two reunite for a Christmas adventure that involves getting a replacement Christmas tree, avoiding the wrath of a gangster named Mobius (Danneel Ackles), and searching for the perfect Christmas gift for Harold’s father-in-law (Danny Trejo).
The film received mixed reviews from critics, with some praising the film’s irreverent humor and holiday spirit, while others criticized its reliance on crude humor and repetitive gags. Despite this, the film was a moderate box office success, grossing over $35 million worldwide against a production budget of $19 million.s
