Friday Flicks: Four Christmases

















Four Christmases
(2008)

About the movie: Documentarian Seth Gordon (THE KING OF KONG: A FISTFUL OF QUARTERS) makes his feature film directorial debut with FOUR CHRISTMASES. Kate (Reese Witherspoon) and Brad (Vince Vaughn) are a happily unmarried couple who avoid spending Christmas with their families at all costs and instead travel to exotic locales. But when they find themselves fogged in at the San Francisco airport and their flight to Fiji cancelled, they have no choice but to spend the holiday with their divorced parents and the rest of their dysfunctional relatives. From his wrestling brothers and cradle-robbing mother to her oversexed grandmother and perfect sister, the couple is forced to face their worst nightmare head-on. Kate and Brad's greatest fears are realized as their families share their most personal secrets.

From me: Four Christmases was an entertaining movie for sure. It wasn't the best of the best and Vince Vaughn's fast-talking drove me a little insane, but it's a cute storyline and worth watching around the Christmas season. Four Christmases is not a movie fit for the younger audience though, alot of what goes on will probably fly right over their heads, but it's still better to keep them out of it, I think.
