'Four Christmases' is a romantic comedy with Christmas as the backdrop. The movie had a theatrical release in November 2008 and was a box-office success.
The movie tells the story of a couple (Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon) who are scared to make commitments. The movie also shows what they experience when they visit all four of their divorced parents on Christmas Day.
On watching the movie on DVD, I found it to be an average entertainer with some funny moments that make you laugh. The downside is it's clichéd and lacks the Christmas feeling.
Vince Vaughn is funny as he produces a typical performance. Reese Witherspoon also performs well. The movie also stars the veteran actor, Robert Duvall who is a treat to watch. The direction provided by Seth Gordon is efficient.
The movie did make me laugh on a couple of occassions, which did the job for me since I was not expecting much.
'Four Christmases' is strictly a run of the mill comedy that does not peak.
Recomended if all you're looking for is a few laughs.
