'Four Christmases' Trailer is Pukable

September 15, 2008


In the grand tradition of Meet the Fockers, The In-Laws, Monster-in-Law, et al, Robert Duvall, Sissy Spacek, Mary Steenburgen, and Jon Voight join the ranks of aging celebrities exploited as wacky in-laws in Four Christmases, a movie you'll probably be forced to watch with your family this Christmas. In this grating ensemble comedy, Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn play a couple forced, for reasons not entirely explained, to consecutively visit each of their zany divorced parents over the holidays. Like the presence of the word "disaster" in the title of Disaster Movie, I feel the decision to include an "I'm going to puke" scene in Four Christmases will be a regrettable one that makes the inevitably lackluster reviews almost too easy to write.

In fairness, Favreau kind of nails his idiot brother role.
