‘Harold & Kumar 3D’ Red Band Trailer Is Sacrilegious Craziness

Does it even need to be said that A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas will easily be the raunchiest film to hit respectable theaters this year? Considering what franchise screenwriters Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg got away with in the last feature-length installment (Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay), one could only wonder how they would top themselves the third time around.

Judging by the newly-released Harold & Kumar 3D red band trailer, the answer is: by skewering Christmas in such an outrageous fashion that even South Park‘s take on the holiday seems almost polite, by comparison.

The previously-released regular Harold & Kumar 3D trailer mostly focused on teasing the film’s intentionally gimmicky and humorously in-your-face 3D antics – which looks to include flaming Christmas trees, broken teeth, ping pong balls, and Neil Patrick Harris’ candy cane… cane. Now, however, you can get an early taste of all the R-Rated crude jokes, comical violence, foul language, and more that the green band preview only hinted at.

In case you actually care about the story, here is the official synopsis for A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas:

After years of growing apart, Harold Lee (John Cho) and Kumar Patel (Kal 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 almost blows Christmas Eve sky high.

Now check out the film’s red band trailer – and remember, this is definitely NSFW (and not for those who are easily offended):

If you can conceive of a lewd or controversial gag involving Christmas, chances are good it popped up in this red band preview. Whether it’s N.P.H. getting kicked out of a pimped-out Heaven for being a better ladies man than Jesus – or a Rankin/Bass-inspired claymation version of Kumar getting… aroused – Harold & Kumar 3D aims to leave moviegoers in stitches like no other comedy due to hit theaters before the end of 2011.

If you were a fan of the previous Harold & Kumar flicks, then chances are good you’ll be laughing something fierce throughout this one. If you couldn’t stand the previous movies’ brand of gross-out humor and extreme politically-incorrect jokes… well, why on Earth would you even bother to acknowledge that this third installment exists?


A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas arrives in 2D and (you guessed it) 3D theaters around the U.S. on November 4th, 2011.

  1. For some reason… I really want to see this movie.

    • Agreed.

    • I know right.

  2. Nothing says Christmas in my family like a baby whacked out on coke.

  3. Love the Harry and Kumar, but taking the piss out of jesus is easy,they wouldn’t dare joke about mohammad.

    • I feel the same way. Making fun of christianity is ho hum anymore. Not edgy in the slightest.

    • It’s a Christmas movie, why would they make a Mohammad joke anyway?

  4. I’m about to check out the trailer… but first! Sandy you take the price with the title of the article!!!! “Sacrilegious Craziness” If only I could translate it properly to spanish and use it everyday! :D

    • Locura Sacrilega

  5. Aw, damn it. I’m going to have see this in 3D, aren’t I? And I was doing to so well avoiding 3D movies, too.

  6. I’m excited. I may even splurge for 3D.

    • Agreed

  7. Might this replace “Bad Santa” as my favorite holiday movie? I hope so! And seeing NPH as a perv cracks me up, haha! :-)

  8. For some reason, the trailer doesn´t play. It asks me to enter my birth date, but when I do and hit the ‘enter’ button, it doesn´t work.

    • are you old enought to watch it? try an earlier birthdate :)

      • I´m 30 years old; how old do I have to be to watch it?

        • 18 in the U.S. 10 in Germany?

  9. I love ignoring the NSFW warning and blasting red band trailers at work.. benefits of working for an ultra liberal entertainment company lol and oddly enough, I met John Cho and Kal Penn today when they came by our radio station. Really cool guys.

    • I hear ya, as I, working at the White House, have no regard for NSFW labels, either. I just roll my eyes and smirk as I drink my Code Red. Obama just came by, chuckled over my shoulder and told me to keep up the good work.

      • ok, thats funny
