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.

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.
