A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas is coming to Blu-ray on February 7th. In honor of the momentous occasion, we’re rolling out this clip featuring everyone’s favorite drug-abusing pseudo-gay sex-addict, Neil Patrick Harris.

In this scene, NPH uses his homosexual cover story to lure a backup dancer into his dressing room. And since he’s so non-threatening, what’s the harm in some nude massage? After all, they’re just a couple of girlfriends, right?

At any rate, if you’re anxious to see how this ends (hint: it ends poorly), go and pre-order the Blu-ray. Tell them Jame Gumb sent you, and receive absolutely no discount.

A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas is coming to a Blu-ray player near you, but drug abuse is no laughing matter. Well, OK, In movies, drug abuse is sometimes a laughing matter, at least if these characters are involved. They make us laugh, they make us cry, they might even get us a contact high (whoa – that, like, rhymes). Just don’t try to use them as a reference for a job application. Here are seven of the greatest drug-abusing duos of in cinema history.

Cheech and Chong

Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong are one of the most famous comedy duos in history. They would probably scoff at being called drug abusers – how can you call it abuse when the relationship is so harmonious, man? – but their status as one of the great drug using duos of all time is unquestionable.

Nick and Nora Charles

Alcohol is a kind of drug, right? And nobody ever drank better than the elegant super-sleuth and his even-more elegant wife in the Thin Man movies from the 1930s and 40s. They don’t get drunk, per se – just tipsy enough to see everything clearly and to keep the banter flowing. The movies’ treatment of what we now refer to as “alcoholism” might not be politically correct by today’s standards, but they’re still the most fun you can have without drinking.

What can you say about A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas? By the time you reach the third installment of a comedy franchise, you pretty much know what to expect. This film is no exception. Drug use, nudity, racially offensive humor and all the other things you loved or hated from the first two films are here, as is the usual cast of side characters (NPH, anyone?). So the real question isn’t “is this film good?” but rather “do I like juvenile, offensive humor?” Since you’re on this site, I’m going to guess you answered yes to that question. As such, you can do a lot worse than A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas.

While I did enjoy the film, there’s no sense in pretending it was a masterpiece. There are times when the plot becomes overly sappy, and focuses too much on the strained relationship of Harold & Kumar. I know some semblance of a story is necessary even in a stoner comedy, but why drag it out in a film like this? We know they are going to patch things up from the moment we realize there’s a conflict, so there’s no need for sappy, sentimental monologues about friendship.

Another problem I had with the film was the nudity. There wasn’t enough. This is already an R-rated movie, so why pull punches? There were several times where I found myself wondering “Why isn’t she getting topless?” Before you throw a rock at my face, keep in mind I’m not talking about a random female actress playing a waitress. I’m talking about actresses involved in the film’s various sex scenes. If this was almost any other movie, I wouldn’t be acting like such a sexist pig. But this is a Harold & Kumar sequel, so I don’t feel out of line having these expectations.

But those minor (and stupid) points aside, I have no real complaints about this film. Yes, it’s sexist, racially insensitive garbage, but that’s what it sets out to be. Besides, in my opinion, a talking, self-aware, waffle-making robot (which this film prominently features) makes up for anything in the politically incorrect department. So if you’re in the mood for some cheap, often twisted laughs, check it out (or save some cash, and watch it on Netflix in a few months).

But if you’ve uttered the phrase “that’s offensive” any time in the pas 24 hours, go watch Stuck Between Stations. Also, lighten the f*ck up.

The trailer for A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas is here, and words fail me. Claymation, NPH, beer pong, spiked drinks, Santa assassinations, a Radio City Music hall spectacular, and, of course, penises getting stuck to frozen poles in the vein of A Christmas Story.

There’s really not much to discuss here, as the trailer consists of a full-fledged visual assault (which will undoubtedly be exacerbated by the fact that it’s in 3D).

If you’re on the fence, I guess the only thing that I can share with you to help you make up your mind is when Neil Patrick Harris tells a girl who thought he was gay,”I am gay. Gay for that pussy.”

I know what my pickup line is for the rest of the fiscal year.

It wouldn’t be A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas without a little NPH. Neil Patrick Harris returns in the third Harold & Kumar film. Now if you think he died in Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay, you didn’t stay until the end of the credits. There’s an Easter egg, and now he’s back for holiday debauchery.

“He’s a song and dance man and he’s happy holiday and also may smoke some crack cocaine and try and force himself into one of the dancers,” Harris said. “That’s all I’ll say about that.”

Note that right now, Harris is promoting the family friendly Smurfs film. But figure the NPH of the Harold & Kumar franchise must have earned his invitation to the family Christmas party.

“Oh, he’s far from invited to Christmas,” Harris added. “They come upon him in a very hilarious way.”

A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas is out this November.

Actor Thomas Lennon, best known as Lieutenant Jim Dangle in "Reno 911," is hard at work on the set of  A Very Harold &  Kumar Christmas 3D, which is currently being filmed in Detroit (aka the Hollywood on the Rust Belt). According to Lennon, the film has no shortage of drug use and, or showering nuns. I think when people Harold and Kumar in 3D it’s going to be a full visceral experience not unlike seeing Avatar with a bunch of dudes smoking pot and some naked nuns taking a shower, which is what I believe they’re filming today. In fact I know for a fact that’s what they’re filming today because I happen to not be on-set today and it’s kind of a bummer. Lennon was also quick to point out that the third installment of Harold and Kumar was actually being filmed in 3D, not converted afterward, a fact that I'm sure will not be lost on the thousands of stoned jackasses who will be watching the movie while waiting for their pizza to hydrate in the year 2017.
