Baltimore Sun

Four Christmases works because of some genuinely funny setups, a pace that never dwells on one gag (or even one family) too long and a...

Charlotte Observer

By Lawrence Toppman
Vaughn delivers every line with his usual deadpan glibness, which suits the part. But I smiled as I watched the big-bellied, multi-chinned...

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
The film has its funny moments, but they are too few to make the holiday excursion worthwhile.

Like the last gift buried under singing Billy Bass fish, dancing Coke cans, joke books and mounds of wrapping paper, there's a glimmer of...

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Carrie Rickey
A generic oven-stuffer that wants to be a stocking-stuffer, is a turkey, despite the foil wrapping and some artfully deployed tinsel.

Alas, there's scarcely a moment of ingenuity or surprise in this tale of the supremely smug, unmarried-but-made-for-each-other Brad and...

The Hollywood Reporter

By Kirk Honeycutt
Bad enough to create one of the most joyless Christmas movies ever, but then to go for an unearned feel-good ending adds insult to injury.

This is a movie of excesses that doesn't know when to settle down. It aims to be a slapstick comedy, a romantic comedy and a plain old...

FOUR CHRISTMASES is no holiday. GRADE: C

By MOVIES REVIEWER
Last night, I attended the advance press premiere of this contrived insipid self-absorbed short 82-minute SUPERFICIAL movie screen-written by FOUR persons - which is usually a serious problematic red...

DON'T LISTEN TO THE CRITICS!!!!!!!!!!

By Trustmewithmyreview
I had my doubts going into the movie hearing it had rated 1/2 a star - I really try not to listen to critics because who are they to say if I'm going to actually like the movie or not....and this was...

This is a light holiday movie with some dark spots. There are some funny moments, and just the cast is enough to pull it through. But there are some genuinely disheartening elements as well, and if...

Not Very Funny, Really...

By lindateddy
I was very much looking forward to this movie, partly because of the diverse cast (Reese, Vince, Mary Steenburgen, Sissy Spacek, Robert Duvall, Tim McGraw, Dwight Yokam) and partly because the premise...

Dave The Movie Watcher Is An Idiot

So they should fire Dave the review guys because he is obviously inaccurate on many movies. This movie is a holiday movie made to boost peoples spirits and get people ready for Christmas, and it...

This movie was so funny!! I enjoyed every thing it was so funny the little baby threw up on the girl. Ohh it was to funny!! That is all I have to say about this!! LOL :)...

Worth the $10...

By Rarely_Reviewing
Lately comedies have an unfortunate habit of showing all the funny parts in the trailer. Even though _Four Christmases_ did give up some of the goods ahead of time, it managed to do so while holding...
