With director Todd-Strauss-Schulson’s A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas opening this weekend, we’ve been given a bunch of movie related swag to giveaway to some of our readers. We’ve got a “Holiday Munchies” red 12-can cooler, a windup toy WaffleBot, snow globes, an actual waffle maker, and a lot more. After you see the movie, you’ll really wish the WaflleBot was real.
Speaking of the movie, I caught a screening a few days ago and thought it was batshit crazy. In a good way. I also cannot believe what they were able to get away with. While Harold and Kumar 3 will clearly not win any awards, I laughed a lot and am glad the franchise is still going strong. Hit the jump for what you can win and how to enter.

John Cho (“Star Trek,”) and Kal Penn (“Superman Returns,”) reprise their title roles in “A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas,” which picks up six years following their last adventure.
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 takes them through party heaven—and almost blows Christmas Eve sky high.
The third installment is the first to highlight the guys’ hilarious mishaps in 3D. The 2004 cult hit “Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle” launched the franchise, followed by “Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay.”
It would not be a “Harold & Kumar” film without Neil Patrick Harris, who returns along with Paula Garcés (TV’s “Defying Gravity”) as Maria; Danneel Harris (“The Roommate”) as Vanessa; Eddie Kaye Thomas (the “American Pie” movies) as Rosenberg; David Krumholtz (“Mr. Popper’s Penguins”) as Goldstein; and Bobby Lee (“Pineapple Express”) as Kenneth Park.
Joining the ensemble are Tom Lennon (“I Love You Man”) as Harold’s new best friend, Todd; Danny Trejo (“Machete”) as Harold’s father-in-law; and Elias Koteas (“Shutter Island”) as Ukranian mob boss Sergei Katsov. Rounding out the cast are Amir Blumenfeld (TV’s “Pranked”) as Kumar’s new best friend Adrian; Patton Oswalt (“The Informant!”), Richard Riehle (“Halloween II”), Jordan Hinson (TV’s “Eureka”), John Hoogenakker (“Contagion”), Jake Johnson (“No Strings Attached”), Yasen Payankov (“Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon”) and David Burtka (TV’s “How I Met Your Mother”).
Todd Strauss-Schulson helms, marking his major feature film directorial debut.
Academy Award®-winner Greg Shapiro (“The Hurt Locker”) returns as producer and Mandate President Nathan Kahane, Nicole Brown, Richard Brener, Michael Disco, and Samuel J. Brown are executive producing.
The screenplay is by Jon Hurwitz & Hayden Schlossberg, who wrote the previous two movies and directed the second, “Harold and Kumar Escape from Guatanamo Bay.” They are also serving as co-producers, along with Kelli Konop and Jonathan McCoy.
Collaborating with Todd Strauss-Schulson behind the scenes are director of photography Michael Barrett (“Bedtime Stories”); production designer Rusty Smith (“Meet the Fockers”), editor Eric Kissack (“Brüno”), and costume designer Mary Claire Hannan (“The Kids Are All Right”). Music is by William Ross.
The film was shot on location in Michigan.
New Line Cinema presents, in association with Mandate Pictures, a Kingsgate Films Production, “A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas.” Opening November 4, 2011 in 3D and 2D, it will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
