Happy Four Christmases day! Reese’s new Holiday romp is in theatres in North America so be sure to go out and check it out this Holiday weekend. I have tons of things to add tomorrow so be sure to come back for lots of updates! I didn’t get time today because I got caught up with some early guests for my own festivities. Lastly, I’d also like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating!

Here are some critic reviews. Be sure to let us know your thoughts on Reese and the film by commenting or in the forum. Reviews are mixed.

From: NY Times

And Ms. Witherspoon serves as a game comic sidekick to the irrepressible Mr. Vaughn, who basically does what he always does, which is to stammer, bluster and wheedle his way through a performance that scrambles the distinction between brute and wimp. He has a tendency, slyly mocked in a church pageant scene, to upstage whomever he’s paired with, and Ms. Witherspoon, though a fine comedian in her own right, is perhaps a bit too decorous and obliging.

From: Baltimore Sun
Witherspoon is at her most winning, struggling to control situations where that’s clearly impossible.

What makes Four Christmases work, despite a few missteps into the overbroad, is that it starts with the ridiculous, then moves toward the sublime. By the end of the film, the audience has taken the same journey as Brad and Kate, and comes to the same realizations about family and relationships: They may not always be fun, and they may take work, but often they’re all we have.

From: Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times

So? We got five Oscar-winning actors, and they don’t need to act much. There can’t be any singing, boss. If McGraw doesn’t sing, then Yoakam doesn’t sing. It’s in the contract. A most-favored-nations clause.

From: EW
In the crassly enjoyable Four Christmases, Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn are forced to put in a yuletide visit to each of their divorced parents.

From: USA Today
The film has its funny moments, but they are too few to make the holiday excursion worthwhile. This predictable and dyspeptic story presents yet another dysfunctional family gathering, as we’ve come to expect in modern yuletide movies.

From: TV Guide

It’s well acted and it’s entertaining — and who can resist a movie where Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau are brothers, and Robert Duvall is their dad?

From: Variety

Breaking type here is Witherspoon, who abandons her perky, upbeat image for the brittle, somewhat chilly piece of work that is Kate. With all the scripts doubtless at her doorstep in the wake of her Walk the Line triumph, it’s a wonder she chose this one, which in no way relies upon her special talents and does her no particular favors.

From: The Hollywood Reporter

Thus a cast that collectively has earned 18 Oscar nominations with five wins is assembled for a script that probably would have been better served by unknowns. At least the slapstick fights, pratfalls and regurgitation might have come off as a spoof of a Sundance dysfunctional family film. The approach by all supporting actors save for Voight is an exaggeration belonging more to the world of cartoons.
