Four Christmases

I saw Four Christmases the other day, and to be honest with you, I was not particularly impressed. This movie had all the making of a classic comedy - Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau, a pretty good plot, a semi-annoying girl - but unfortunately, it did not live up to its potential. They just could have done so much more with it. I did not find myself laughing all that much throughout the movie which I totally expected to do. I am not going to spoil anything for those of you who haven't seen it, we can save that for the comments section.

On another note, what the fuck is up with the poster above?? They really took photoshop to the extreme. Vince's head is waay to big and Reese Witherspoon looks like a midget. What, they couldn't have taken the time to get the two of them together and take a real photo? Why do they always do this with movie posters. They never look realistic.

She doesn't look like a midget lol...Vince Vaughn is ridiculously tall. Taller than most people realize. If you ever saw him in person, you'd be slightly terrified. And I agree with you about the movie. Although I was laughing so hard in the vomit scene that it was almost worth the $12.50. (When the FUCK did movie tickets go up again?!) Anyway, I should have saved it for Netflix. Live & learn. Looking forward to Doubt, though. Loooove me some Phillip Seymour Hoffman.

Yea, Vince Vaughn's like 6'5".

Why is there nothing exciting coming out in theaters?

I'm actually looking forward to The Wrestler. Have you seen Diner?
