After a nice lunch, we decided the movie of choice would be Four Christmases. We were looking for something light, and it's tough to resist Vince Vaughn. This is the story of two selfish adults, who avoid their families at Christmas every year by lying about their commitments. One year, they get caught in the lie and have no excuse not to make the visits. Both have divorced parents, so there are four homes to visit. The visits to the first three homes are pretty funny. Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon play well off each other. At the fourth house the film takes a serious turn, which is fine, but it lasted a little too long for me. I liked the ending, the story comes full circle. A decent comedy with a strong cast.
