It's getting late, so I'll keep things simple...
First, the film far surpassed my expectations. Not being weighed down by the need to make W jokes every few minutes allowed them to focus on being funny and it paid major dividends. If you've seen the first two, you know in general what is coming, along with a few interesting cameos.
Second, the 3D effects did what they were meant to do. Still the most skippable from any movie I've seen, which include post-prod converts.
Third, NPH is still the man.
And last. but not least, pancakes do indeed suck.

I didn't want it to end. My eyes didn't close for a second. The 3D and special effects were well worth the extra $4 per ticket. If you are a Harold & Kumar fan or even if this is your first time, go and have a great time.

As a fan of the past H & K movies I was a bit skeptical about another but it exceeded by expectations. I'm alreadry looking forward to IV!

Enjoyed "White Castle" but were let down by "Guantanamo Bay?" Then fear not: you should enjoy this film. Harold and Kumar are fun again.
I was surprised how much I enjoyed this film. Yes, like Piranha 3D, the 3D is gimmicky and the movie is for adults--but frankly I'm sick and tired of every other new film being post-converted to 3D. The 3D here is very vibrant, and it's worth the extra dollar or two.
Side note: casting Danny Trejo as Harold's father-in-law is pure genius.
Yes this review doesn't say much other than the 3D isn't a let down and the film is funny (unlike the second), but if you're planning on seeing this film or even just thinking about it, odds are you've seen the first two and know what you're getting into/not expecting high art (pun intended).
If you like H&K it's see it. Otherwise, it might be best to steer clear.

This movie was lame...to an extent. I guess it was a little annoying to see Kumar still getting high after all of these years. I really didn't find his idiotic antics to be that hilarious, and Kal Penn just looked too old to play his character, and still act the way that he was. However, I thought when they mixed Harold & Kumar together, it made for a "better" comedy. I thought that the movie would be a bit more entertaining, but instead I found that it ran dull at some points. Thank goodness for the other characters/actors like Thomas Lennon who plays Todd and the baby who played his daughter Mary. Lennon always seems to have small roles in his movies but always makes his scenes count. I love him in comedies, and he was another reason I went to see this movie. The situation with his daughter Mary was hilarious. The party scene and any scene with Lennon and NPH were great, and were the highlights of the movie. Fun to see in 3D, but not a great movie...C follow me @TajuanaG
