Four Christmases

I managed to win 4 free passes to watch Four Christmases last Wednesday. Sorry to the birthday girl; I decided not to invite you along as I assumed you would have special birthday plans! ;)

*Warning, spoiler alert!*

It sure was funny; being a romantic comedy with Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn. The opening was a beautiful and little shocking twist.(Good idea to spice up relationships...hint.. hint.. with all the made-up personalities) :p

There were all the funny scenes with Vince character, Brad's overbearing rowdy brothers and his silliness in creating havoc in his father's house. However, I was a little disappointed with Reese. Perhaps her role offers her less space to act out and this time, she gets bullied by Brad and somehow it does minimise her role.

I guess maybe she shines better as the single starring role like Legally Blonde. Towards the end of the show, I found Vince's rambling irritating as if a little too elaborate for my liking.

In all, it was a good laugh and it did highlight certain little things in relationships which people do take for granted. Obviously, there is a lesson to learn too; the Christmas spirit should be shared with family members and not faraway trips based on lies just to be away from the family.

If not, somehow, the newscaster will come and interview you in the midst of your little lies or secret (as it happens in this movie) to broadcast to everyone to view.
