About as predictable as socks under the tree.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 22, 2011
It's too sparse in the comedy to be really successful--every good joke is in the commercials--but it's got some heart and that counts for something.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/10

Maybe if Four Christmases had extended itself beyond white trash targets and projectile vomiting, we could've been talking about a new Christmas classic right now.
December 11, 2009
Movie-goers heading to see the romantic comedy Four Christmases might want comedy, Christmas cheer and chemistry, but nobody gets everything on his wish list.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

How many Academy Award winners can a studio put in one cast and still turn out a bad movie?
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
August 30, 2009
Although not a yuletide classic, Four Christmases is better than most of the holiday-oriented slop put out in recent years.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
March 2, 2009
For all of its snarky holiday/family bashing, Four Christmases wimps out in the third act and reaffirms all the traditional values it affects to mock.
January 4, 2009
Maybe catch one of the other hundred holiday films to be offered over the next few weeks and wait for Four Christmases to come to your local Red Box.

Grows tired long before the end credits start rolling at the 80-minute mark.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 24, 2008
There is no spark to the humor, there is no warmth to the drama. There is a tired plot that whips the essence of every Christmas movie ever made into a dreary slog
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
December 17, 2008
Feels like they wanted to make 5 different holiday movies and couldn't decide which plot line was best, so they rolled them all together, glossing over everything.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
December 12, 2008
Projectile baby vomiting is a recurring gag. I cried mistletoe well before the film was halfway through.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
December 9, 2008
Feels both too cluttered and too safe.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
December 9, 2008
This is marginally better than most, with a few offbeat comic ideas, a reliably droll performance from Vaughn, and, as the parents, four watchable old troupers in search of a fat paycheck.
December 8, 2008
You can see most of the big slapstick set-pieces looming long before they hit but there are a few smaller routines that pack a punch just because they have an unexpectedly manic tilt to them.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
December 6, 2008
An embarassment for all involved.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
December 6, 2008
Four Christmases boasts one of the most impressive casts ever assembled to make a movie that is, at best, only mildly amusing.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
December 5, 2008
A good start to the holiday season.
December 4, 2008
Filled with 'hilarious' scenes of people being vomited on and falling off roofs, Four Holidays tries to meld nasty, black-hued comedy with warm sentiment, resulting in a sick melange of treacle and malice.
December 4, 2008
An imperfect storm of horrible writing, awkward casting and questionable taste gathers soon after the opening credits and dumps downpours of buzz-killing humour at depressingly regular intervals.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
