    The first "H&K" caught people off-guard with its canny idiocy and zigzagging, picaresque treasure hunt premise. By now, there's no catching anyone off-guard with these two, except by way of the most off-color and off-putting means possible.

    The charm has aged right out of this silly stoner franchise.

    Let us recall that the first film was, in its blithely vulgar way, hilarious. And let us demand a moratorium on coked-out-baby jokes, which seriously kill the buzz.

    We're getting more of the same, but less of the impact, like weed from a bad dealer.

If you liked the first two don't hesitate on this one. It was great being able to sit down in a real comedy this year and start laughing from the start. With less pot smoking then our two heros are used to they pull off a fantastic Christmas comedy that I haven't seen since "Bad Santa" and "Elf" in 2003. They used the fad of 3D to their advantage by abusing it so much that its hysterical. If your on the fence about it and dont mind a fake prosthetic penis frozen to a pole, go see it. If you have a problem with what you just imagined, don't. Full Review »

    I have absolutely no idea how this movie got so many good reviews from users and critics alike.

I was a huge fan of the first two films, and as a true fan of the franchise I was so incredibly disappointed. This movie was SIMPLY NOT FUNNY. It's okay to make a dumb film, but at least make me laugh. The characters that were added in this movie was soooo boring, almost every single joke fell flat. I think I laughed out loud maybe once or twice, most of the movie was painstakingly boring. The 3D bullcrap also made my eyes hurt after 2 hours. I WANT MY MONEY BACK!! Shame on you guys for making such an unfunny movie. Full Review »

    This really wasn't as funny as the first two movies. It just seemed like a half-assed effort to cash in on the popularity of the franchise.This really wasn't as funny as the first two movies. It just seemed like a half-assed effort to cash in on the popularity of the franchise. And no, I won't accept the argument that you have to be high to enjoy these movies; I watched the other two straight as an arrow and loved them, but not so with this one. Full Review »
