'Four Christmases' Most Popular Respite from Conversation

December 1, 2008


This weekend, many of us headed to theaters with our families as a break from sitting around awkwardly watching television with our families, and trying to remember where our bed used to be before our bedrooms became mom's sewing room. Innumerable grandmas who hadn't been to the theater since last Thanksgiving weekend were again shuffled out of the house and into a darkened auditorium for two hours, where many slept.

Here's what movies they saw, along with the official one-sentence grandma review of each film:

1. Four Christmases - $31.7 million. "There were so many Christmases that I just couldn't keep track, but I liked how the children visited their parents."

2. Bolt - $26.6 million. "I don't know what that was all about."

3. Twilight - $26.4 million. (Wistful gazing out the window the whole drive home.)

4. Quantum of Solace - $19.5 million. "So loud."

5. Australia - $14.8 million. "That was very nice, but Australia will always be a nation of criminals."
