A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas

(R) ★☆☆☆☆

Comic effrontery is the Bic that lights the bong in these movies, but a third one? Here, the now-30ish men-boys hunt down a Christmas tree, mix up with gangsters, briefly turn into animated characters, consort with virgins and meet Santa. Neil Patrick Harris returns for a Rockettes-style musical number, which has its moments. But this franchise is played out, and the only way to stay “fresh” is with the most off-color, off-putting jokes possible.

The Dirty Heads

By Craig A. Nyman

The reggae/hip-hop act rolled into the neon oasis with a set fit for a bonfire party on the beach. The SoCal beach boys—playing one of their final fall tour stops and second Vegas date within four months—had the lively crowd bopping to “Neighborhood” and “Taint” before breaking out some new material. A sweet, chilled-out reggae cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Paint It Black” was a highlight of the evening, but it bewildered the all-ages crowd, which, for the only time all night, stood frozen.
