Movie Review – A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas

It’s movie review day here at Glitter, Bliss, and Perfect Chaos. Today we’re seeing A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas. I’m super excited about this movie. I love hilarious, raunchy comedies, and I’m hoping this is a good one!

Here’s the trailer.

The Verdict: I hate when I have high hopes for a movie and am disappointed. And I don’t think it was just me. I expected to laugh and laugh at this movie. I counted six times that the audience at the theater laughed, and some of those seemed a little forced. Like we were desperate to find something to laugh at, so we’d feel like we got our money’s worth. Also our first laugh was about thirty minutes into the movie.

So here’s the deal. We used to have a thing. Like a few years ago. We were both younger, and it was a time in my life where making bad decisions was the norm. I forget why we broke up. Maybe because he was always high, but I forget. Then last night, he called me and wanted to hang out. I’m not sure if I was feeling nostalgic or just a little lonely, but I went.

I used to think he was hilarious, but when we were together, I just didn’t laugh that much. He’s an okay guy. I don’t know if it was that I’ve changed or if he’s changed. Or maybe he’s stayed the same, and I’ve grown up. Our date felt forced. I felt like I owed him somehow. Like I laughed a little, just because I used to tell him he was funny, even though he wasn’t that funny to me anymore. And I don’t care what anyone says. Getting a baby high on second hand smoke is sorta funny. Having a baby on cocaine and ecstasy, not so funny. It just isn’t.

I wasn’t embarrassed to be seen with him, and I certainly didn’t go back to his place. I just left when the date was over. He didn’t really do anything wrong, we just didn’t have a connection anymore. It was just kinda a Bad Date.

My 17 yr. old daughter and her friends are going to see this movie this weekend. I will update this review after they see it, to see if maybe they thought it was funnier than I did. I will also point out the movie critics gave this movie a B-, which for critics I thought was really high! Pun intended.

So when I was searching google images trying to find a photo of someone hot and shirtless from the movie, I seached Kal Penn because I figured I’d have the best luck there. I didn’t find a photo of him shirtless, instead I found this. He has nothing to do with the movie, but I’ve got to leave you with a little hotness.

 

Just a reminder of how we rank movies here at Glitter, Bliss, and Perfect Chaos:

One Star = Walk of shame. I was in last night’s dress, carrying my shoes as I rushed off. I can’t believe I wasted my time on him and pray no one I know sees me.

Two Stars = Bad date. He didn’t really do anything wrong, we just didn’t have any chemistry. Maybe he just wasn’t my type. I probably won’t answer if he calls.

Three Stars =Hookup. We had a great night together. Don’t know if it will be more than that, but it was sure fun while it lasted.

Four Stars = Stalking him. What a night! We danced, we kissed. Now if I could just get him to call me.

Five Stars = Happily ever after. I love him! I want to marry him, have his babies, and live happily ever after.
