Last night I went and saw the movie "Four Christmases" with my friend Deb and my mother-in-law. While I wouldn't ask for my money back, I wouldn't recommend it as a must see. If you see it on DVD in a few months, then go for it.
It is fairly predictable and while I love me some Vince Vaughn (Brad), he and Reese Witherspoon (Kate) have absolutely NO chemistry. There are lots of rumors going around about how much they hate each other in real life, well it definitely shows. Vaughn is pretty funny, but some things just don't make sense.
Both of their families have thick southern accents, yet they live in San Francisco. Okay so maybe they moved, but both sets of parents and their siblings partners have an accent, too. It just irked me. Tim McGraw plays one of Brad's brothers and I had no idea until I saw the credits. It was a very odd cameo. Dwight Yoakam was in it as well, so there must be a country music connection somewhere. Kristin Chenoweth plays Kate's sister and I love her, but she was under utilized and could have been any actress. Sue from "Swingers" is there, too as Brad's Mom's boyfriend, but he looks old and fat which makes me sad.
I did laugh and I had a good night, but I won't be buying this when it's out on DVD to put into my night-time DVD rotation even though I love the sound of Vince Vaughn's voice.
