*It’s no secret that the “Harold & Kumar” movie franchise is what’s known in pop culture as a “stoner film,” taking its place alongside such canibus classics as “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” and anything Cheech and Chong.
But Colombian-American actress Paula Garces, who has starred in all three of the “H&K” films – including “A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas,” opening today – says the stories about best friends Harold Lee (John Cho) and Kumar Patel (Kal Penn)should leave audiences with much more than just a sudden case of the munchies.
For example, one of the non-weed storylines deals with Harold and his wife Maria, played by Garces, as they plan for a new baby.
“Because we want to start a family, we want to make sure that my Latino family gets to know him and loves him. But there’s a couple of snags,” she tells EURweb exclusively. “And the adventure starts from there.”
Another theme of “Christmas” has to do with Harold and Kumar beginning to grow apart. Garces explains in the audio below. [Scroll down to watch the trailer.]
