Apparently November is the month of getting naughty. Two of our favorite Chos, John and Margaret, have stepped back into the spotlight with "A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas," which opened Nov. 4, and "Cho Dependent," which screens Saturday at the Chicago Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, respectively. This wacky duo make for some pretty crazy interviews -- so crazy, in fact, that we're not sure you'll be able to tell the difference. See if you can match the quotes below to the Cho who said them.

“It's kinda cool actually to be in an environment where people want to go off and serve their country and come back,” said “A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas” star Kal Penn. To clarify: In this case “come back” means “reprise his role as a big-screen pothead,” since Penn (Kumar) temporarily left his post in the White House Office of Public Engagement to film the third “Harold and Kumar” movie, opening Nov. 4. (Penn has since completed his two-year stint on the job in D.C.)

*** (out of four) Fortunately, “A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas” consists of more than just Santa holding a bong. Though it has that too. Cheerfully honest about the absurdity of its 3D and the gratuitousness of its nudity (cue the hot nuns in the shower and topless angels in heaven), the film's funny and playful--but only for viewers who'd attach those words to a beer pong showdown with underage kids and a breakfast-assistant toy called the Wafflebot that falls in love with Kumar.

It's getting hard out there for a foreign guy. There used to be a time when my biggest problem on weekends was choosing which house party to go to or which dinner invitation to accept. Not anymore. Let me give you some background. After coming to America as a college student from - wait, where am I from? - I ended up taking a job in Chicago. Rather than wallow in Midwestern isolation, I soon was overjoyed to notice a pattern of LeBron-like demand for my presence at after-work events, happy hours and guys' nights out. Back then, the foreign sidekick had...

***1/2 (out of four) Let's get the obvious out of the way: > > Tara Reid probably didn't have to clear her schedule to return to the “American Pie” franchise. > > “American Pie 2” stunk, and “American Wedding” wasn't much better. > > Perhaps no one would care if they never saw the Shermanator again. Here's the whopping surprise: “American Reunion” wraps up the series fittingly and funnily. You know that affliction that most comedies have, where they stop being hilarious with...

If it seems like just about every single person you know is making a new year's resolution, that's because most of them are. More than 60 percent of people make resolutions (at least sometimes), according to a 2002 study from the University of Scranton. And of course they have to tell you about it. That's a lot of conversations to have, conversations that are often unsolicited and, even more often, uninteresting. Even your friends don't really care if you're "getting back in the gym" or "calling your mom more"--these are boring.

"New Girl" star Jake Johnson wouldn't object if romance bloomed between his character, Nick, and Zooey Deschanel's adorkable Jess in the hit Fox comedy. "If I happen to have a day of work lying in bed with Zooey Deschanel," he told RedEye during a stop in Chicago recently, "I mean, it is for work, and I'm a married man, but that's not a bad way to get paid for a day job. Just sayin'. " Johnson isn't the only person who would be OK with the pairing. The 32-year old Evanston native gets stopped on the street by fans insisting he break...

Joseph Gordon-Levitt may now be starring in the time travel film “Looper,” but the actor has long made giant leaps look easy. From “10 Things I Hate About You” to “Mysterious Skin” to “Brick” to “(500) Days of Summer” to “Inception,” Gordon-Levitt never does the same thing twice. In the last year alone, his screen roles have had him battle cancer (“50/50”), support Batman (“The Dark Knight Rises”) and pedal for his life (“Premium Rush”).  In writer-director Rian Johnson's exceptional “Looper,” opening Friday, Gordon-Levitt plays Joe, who in 2044...
