FOUR CHRISTMASES is no holiday. GRADE: C

By MOVIES REVIEWER
Written November 24, 2008
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 flag regarding the plot/movie especially for comedies. Despite the Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn's star-billings and talented well-known cast(Kristin Chenoweth, Mary Steenburgen, Jon Voight, Robert Duvall, Sissy Spacek, Tim McGraw, Dwight Yoakam, Jon Favreau), FOUR CHRISTMASES is just another lack-luster Hollywood comedy run-of-the-mill production - which begs the question as to why this well-known cast so desperately signed onto such a BLAH project. Granted, there were some sprinklings of funny moments but after awhile even the barf jokes get a little tired. I am glad I did not waste money on such a droll movie. VERDICT: Do you wish to pay $20 for two admissions plus $15-20 for concessions - total of $35-$40 hard-earned money on a junk movie? SKIP IT. A rental.

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

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 definitely the case... I thoroughly enjoyed the movie from beginning to end....I laughed almost the entire time, I I went to see it last night...I was shocked to see some mothers brought their children due to some scenes and language. Reese Witherspoon & Vince Vaughn did an excellent job their chemistry was perfect together and with an all-star cast that truly blended with each other. GO see this movie...it is really good...I can think of a lot of family gatherings when I'm ready to say "MISTLETOE" !! :) and the line about lies with families is a classic!!

I was afraid that the best parts of the movie were shown in the trailor, and I was glad that I was disappointed. I haven't laughted that hard in awhile. It was definitely an enjoyable movie that most could get a good laugh from at some point. Definitely a must go, especially with the holiday's soon approaching.
