My sister and I went to a pre-release screening of "Four Christmases".
It releases this Wednesday, November 26th.
Vince Vaughn (swoon) and Reese Witherspoon (perky as usual) are an unmarried couple who have been able to escape celebrating Christmas with their families.
Until this year.
Both sets of parents have divorced, therefore, they have four stops to make on Christmas day.
I love a good comedy, and you may hear a chuckle or smirk out of me, but I'm really not one to laugh loudly in the theater. This movie was an exception.
Sandi and I were laughing out of control, [snort] nonstop, tears rolling down our cheeks,[snort] throughout most of the movie. We left with black mascara raccoon eyes, seriously.
Not so much the rest of the theater. Other reviews may label this, meh, another cutesy Christmas movie.
Sure, it was funny and laughter came from others at the appropriate times, but us?
We lost it.
I think my family should get royalties from this movie.
Have the writers been peeking in on our families lives? I'm sure of it.
Best line (delivered by Vince Vaughn) used to justify their decisions:
"You can't spell families without lies"
