3D CHRISTMAS" HAS NO AUDIENCE LEFT
Catholic League president Bill Donohue describes the highlights of the new
movie, "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas," which opened today:
·One of the lead actors punches a bishop
·Real life homosexual Neil Patrick Harris (playing himself) recounts going to heaven (portrayed as a nightclub) where he sits with two topless women who fondle him. Jesus sees this and calls his "daddy" to get Harris kicked out of the club. Harris then spews an obscenity at Jesus
·Three priests have a pillow fight with a young boy in a dark place known as the altar boy room—they are shown racing after him
·The Virgin Mary is trashed
There's more—little kids are shown high on cocaine, etc.
As usual, the movie has its apologists. For example, the Washington Post says the film "makes fun of everyone under the sun—Jews, blacks, gays, Koreans, Indians, Mexicans, nuns, Santa, children and Jesus Christ…." Nice to know that mocking ethnic groups is identical to mocking Jesus. But if equality were really being practiced, why did Muhammad get a pass?
It is interesting to note that the actor who plays Kumar (Kal Penn) recently served in the Obama administration as Associate Director in the Office of Public Liaison. Is that where he perfected his Christian-bashing skills?
In any event, the only audience that really might be attracted to this film won't be able to make it: the urban barbarians are camping out, protesting Wall Street (or something like that).
The uproarious-looking Warner Bros. Pictures comedic releas debuts on November 4th with a cast which also includes Neil Patrick Harris, Paula Garces, Danneel Harris, Bobby Lee, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Amir Blumenfeld, David Burtka, Tom Lennon, Fred Melamed, Patton Oswalt, Richard Riehle and Danny Trejo.
Harold and Kumar 3D picks up six years after their last adventure. Following years of growing apart, Harold Lee (Cho) and Kumar Patel (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.
