Becky and I went to see Four Christmases at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO on Friday. Fandango website at Four Christmases describes the movie as follows.
“When upscale, happily unmarried San Francisco couple Kate and Brad find themselves socked in by fog on Christmas morning, their exotic vacation plans morph into the family-centric holiday they had, until now, gleefully avoided. Out of obligation—and unable to escape—they trudge to not one, not two, but four relative-choked festivities, increasingly mortified to find childhood fears raised, adolescent wounds reopened…and their very future together uncertain.”
Four Christmases was a funny movie. Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon did a great job. There are some great lines in the film that will make you laugh and there are a number of parts that are completely over-the-top. The situations they find themselves in based on lying to their families makes for a pretty funny film.
However, there are a number of really stupid parts in the movie that are totally ridiculous and many people may find them offensive. We saw a few people get up and leave, so not everyone thought it was funny. A few of these parts were not funny at all, but definitely wrecked the film because they were so whacked out.
Four Christmases will make for a good rental. We thought there were plenty of funny parts and it even had a good Christmas message about the importance of family that tried to save the film toward the end. Becky and I both agreed though that we would wait for this one to hit the rental racks. It’s a good comedy, just not that good.
