It’s that special time of year again, when we can expect another installment of drug-fueld antics courtesy of Harold & Kumar. This time the high smoking duo destroy everything that makes Christmas holy by shooting Santa Claus in the face (by accident), and then partying with Jesus and Neil Patrick Harris. In 3D, naturally.
