"Four Christmases" is a pretty funny holiday film. Vaughn and Witherspoon are two likeable, funny leads. A star-studded supporting cast keeps the humor coming as well. The humor is of the squirmy, uncomfortable kind. You feel bad for these two as they are forced to deal with their families. This is an entertaining film for fans of holiday movies. If you are in the mood for something Christmassy, check it out.
The supporting cast was glorious, with nearly everyone working their weirdo mojo perfectly. Robert Duvall and Sissy Spacek ARE their characters, filling every nook and cranny of personhood with a believable and real behavior. Kristin Chenoweth, so wonderful in Pushing Daisies, is again sufficiently bubbly to be engaging and sufficiently odd to be quite offputting. She is a hoot! Where Four Christmases failed with me was in the stars themselves. Both Vince and Reese didn't really inhabit these roles. Any comparable actor/actress could have played these parts with the same oomph.
But this is minor. With lots of belly laughs, lots of fiendishly clever throw-away lines, (my favorite, "And how are you, little lady?") and enough sight gags to populate a Laurel and Hardy festival, this film offered a quality evening's entertainment. Much like "The Hangover", it was far better than it had any business being.
Vince and the vomit scenes are just too funny. He does the manic goofball well here. Good cast executing a silly comedy in a respectable way. I like most all of Vaughn and Reese's work to date. There is more to these two than a lot of other Hollywood types.
This not a classic but still a cut above some of the junk coming out lately. Some story plots telegraphed but this is seems to be the norm too often, including big budget and acclaimed movies too. Hey movie makers we're not stupid and can handle a surprise! (Even been known to be able to follow a book) Light fun with good supporting cast.
Give it a look and you will be surprised. Solid 4 stars. (To some other reviewers: one star, really? 2-4 range I see but one?)

|Why? Double Dipping?||
A double dip is releasing the same movie on the same format multiple times. If this had already been out on DVD and Blu Ray and then we got the Four Christmases Extreme Ultimate Christmas Edition, then it would be considered a double dip. Releasing holiday movies around the holiday period happens... Read More
