Four ChristmasesDirector: Seth Gordon
A crafty couple run the Christmas Day gauntlet by racing to visit their divorced parents' four separate households in this Vince Vaughn/Reese Witherspoon comedy that proves the holidays are no time for relaxing. Brad (Vaughn) and Kate (Witherspoon) have made something of an art form out of avoiding their families during the holidays, but this year their foolproof plan is about go bust -- big time. Stuck at the city airport after all departing flights are canceled, the couple is embarrassed to see their ruse exposed to the world by an overzealous television reporter. Now, Brad and Kate are left with precious little choice other than to swallow their pride and suffer the rounds. Along the way, they perform in a church nativity play at the behest of Kate's mother's (Mary Steenburgen) pushy pastor Phil (Dwight Yoakam), contend with Brad's gruff father, Howard (Robert Duvall), and bullying brothers, Dallas (Jon Favreau) and Denver (Tim McGraw) -- a pair of trained UFC fighters -- and pay a visit to Brad's spacy, New Age mother, Paula (Sissy Spacek), who recently made waves in the family circle by marrying her son's childhood friend.

I don't buy movies, but when I got having a B&N gift card, I thought of getting movies. This was one of the first movies I thought about because it just gushes with comedy; has one of those messages that makes you look at your life and how you can make it better. Reese and Vince just have a great connection. One of my favorites.
Its a great Christmas movie.
It was funnier than I expected.
I finally watched this movie, even though Christmas has since passed. Exceptionally funny movie, I thought. If you are into Christmas movies or various romantic comedy & such, this movie is pretty darn funny, and heart felt in the long run. It has a good message about being honest to the ones your love, and the importance of family. I would recommend it!
The movie is hilarious and though there are outrageous characters that are much more comical than most peoples families in real life, its very relatable. I wish I could go out of town for the holidays too!
Honesty i've got to say this is the funniest movi I have seen in a long long time. Was skeptical on getting because I thought Couples Retreat was horrible. Vince Vaughn horrible once horrible twice right?? Not the case. This is worth adding to the collection!!
