Bravo! a good come back for Vaughn from last year’s Fred Claus! Not bad for the movie also as it came in no 1 at the box office on opening weekend. There are usually many factors which make a movie a hit or a blockbuster and in this case, its because the movie has touched the heartstrings of many American family’s dilemma during the holidays- dealing with parents, family, in-laws and holiday gatherings. Timing is also a factor for opening day, because this year Americans could definitely use an escape from the realities of our country’s problems, Four Christmases was able to fill that void as well.
Vaughn is, as always, funny and high strung which adds a certain pizazz to his character, even tho all the roles he plays seem to be the same character, he can still deliver and capture his audience. Whiterspoon is an added bonus in this film and is able to hold her own. If you haven’t seen the movie, please make a point to do so.
