Four Holidays

'Tis the season for a Christmas comedy. Brooding funny guy Vince Vaughan and America's sweetheart Reese Witherspoon play a couple who ambitiously attempt to visit all four of their divorced parents over the course of Christmas day, after their getaway plans turn sour. Considering Christmas movies are much maligned for their preference of cheesiness over quality, it may shock you to know that no less than five cast members have an Oscar on the mantle at home. Director Seth Gordon gets his first shot in the director’s chair of a fictional project after helming the feel good documentary hit The King of Kong.

Completely Lackluster

I defiantly don't recommend this stupid film

Charming

Obviously not the flicks reviewer type of movie, because some of the funniest and charming parts are the awkwardness in finding out more about the one they love. They have basically said we'll set the bar this high and not go any further. But once they go past these boundaries they have set, they realise they're missing out. It has drama and comedy nicely...

Really Good!

I sympathis with what Tania and Charlene above have said (maybe I'm easily entertained) but I found this movie to be fantastic. It was funny! Like really funny! Yes it has a story it's not mindless humour and I think it's the story about learning about your partner that ads to it's charm.

Oddly misanthropic, occasionally amusing but thoroughly cheerless holiday attraction that is in no way a family film.

Refreshingly tart and lean, forgoing the usual schmaltz and syrup.

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 romance but falls short of each goal.

Gordon's best not-so-secret weapons, though, are his two stars: Vaughn and Witherspoon are an inspired pairing, not least because they're such a mismatched set of salt-and-pepper shakers.

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.
