The third film in the Harold & Kumar franchise is – as expected – a mad, offensive, gross-out, hilarious piece of festive tat, sending up pretty much everything it can get its mucky paws on. It’s perhaps not as funny and boundary-pushing as the first two films, but its soft, creamy centre and winning performances from its leads make it impossible not to enjoy.
When we last left TV’s favourite unhinged doctor, he’d been indirectly responsible for the death of his only friend Wilson’s girlfriend and new-school team member Thirteen had discovered she had Huntington’s Disease. Despite some early uneasiness while these plot issues resolve themselves, season five generally continues the hit show’s original formula with entertaining success. There’s a darker edge to this season, however, as the real House behind the sarcastic quips is discovered in depth.
