    After a fruitful 88-episode run on Comedy Central, Reno 911! went away forever in 2009. Since that time, most of the cast has gone on to do great things, and that’s fantastic. Really.

    In 2004, best friends Harold and Kumar went to White Castle; four years later, the potty pair visited Guantanamo Bay. This winter they’ll be spending Christmas in New York City. And this time, for some ridiculous reason, it’s all going down in 3D. To the movie makers’ defense, though, at least they had the sense to actually address the idea that 3D makes no sense in a movie like this;
