Orlando "Brad" McVie (Vince Vaughn) and girlfriend Kate (Reese Witherspoon) accidentally spends time with their families. They visit Brad's father (Robert Duvall), then Kate's mother (Mary Steenburgen), and then Brad's mother (Sissy Spacek) and, Kate's father (Jon Voight). Vince Vaughn reunites with his co-cast in Swingers and does most of the comedy. Had a few impossible scenes such as the kids bullying and teasing Kate, Brad falling of without any injury from the roof, and the like. The soundtrack was decent and screenplay could have been better toward the end of the film. Four Christmases is a fun holiday film to watch for those who spend time with their family and strengthen your relationship as a couple.

The concept for this movie is has an interesting hook, but sadly the story is really underdeveloped. It may have worked better if it was just 2 families rather than 4, but a lot of this movie felt rushed. It's great to see actors such as Robert Duvall, Mary Steenburgen, Sissy Spacek, and Jon Voight as the parents, but the movie ends surprisingly early. It could have been pretty memorable but at the most it ends up being average.

Not without its flaws, but actually very funny!

The film centers around Brad (Vince Vaughn) and Kate (Reese Witherspoon), a happily UNmarried San Francisco couple who have a unique holiday tradition: Every Christmas for the last three years, they send their regrets to their parents that they won't be able to visit because they're performing charitable acts for destitute people in third world countries. But their lies soon catch up to them, because when our couple arrives at the airport to pick up their tickets, they discover to their chagrin that a fog has grounded all flights. Worse yet, they get caught on camera when the nightly news does a segment on stranded passengers. They're busted . . . and expected to show up at each of their four divorced parents' homes for Christmas. Reluctantly, Brad and Kate set out to make the best of a b...

Not So Merry

This movie was not as great as I thought it would be. It had all of the right ingredients--talented actors, relatable subject matter, holiday humor--but it just fell short. It was like waiting for your mom to finish cooking your favorite dish, but her best friend from college called and she forgot to check on it so it came out burnt. While there were moments that were very funny, for the most part there was just too much farce and no chemistry between the actors.

The "conflict" between Vaugh and Witherspoon seemed force. It was like the writers said, "OMG, we need to have something wrong with them! We'll just say they don't know each other well even though they've been together for 3 years and do everything together that's what we'll say!" It just made no sense. Also, in one day Wither...

Predictable but there are some good laughs.

The lastest manufactured romantic comedy for the holiday starring Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn as a couple whose trip to Fiji is canceled are forced and struggle to visit all four of their divorced parents on Christmas Day.

Vaughn's semi-professional ultimate fighting brothers are played by country singer-turned movie star Tim McGraw and best friend Jon Favreau, who provides the films few laughs. more awkward moments of family embarrassment follow through visitng houses 2, 3, & 4. Vince Vaughn is funny but not reallly acting. He just being Vince Vaughn. I liked the character . Ithink Vince Vaghn fans will like this movie. Witherspoon, however looks like she can't keep up with his improve and comic timing. I just though she wasn't the right choice for this movie. i sometimes durin...

What will the next "Christmas Vacation" or "A Christmas Story" movie be?  We are missing a great Christmas movie over the last decade in my opinion.
