Welcome, extremely fun people. A Very Harold And Kumar Christmas finally has the perfect double feature companion for when you’re completely blotto during the holidays and need something to watch, and of course it’s from the other reigning kings of stoner comedy. Sony Pictures gives you The Night Before, a drug fueled comedy about three childhood best friends who have spent every christmas eve for the past decade-plus partying in a completely debauched haze. As they all enter far more adult phases of life – career and impending family being pretty good reasons for the party to end – they trio decide to go all out one last time. Presumably a lot of fun and a lot of life lessons ensue. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, and Anthony Mackie lead the cast, with Lizzy Caplan, Jillian Bell, Michael Shannon, and Mindy Kaling. Directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50) from a script by Levine and Evan Goldberg & Kyle Hunter & Ariel Shaffir, it’s produced by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver and exec produced by Nathan Kahane, Joe Drake, Barbara A. Hall, Kyle Hunter, Ariel Shaffir and Ben Waisbren. It hits theaters November 25.
