Good Morning Gentle Readers,
After a mildly amusing opening scene clearly inspired by these guys......
.....Four Christmases sort of staggers along in search of a funeral. The movie is Just OK, 2.5 on a scale of 10. Lots of name actors, none of whom can help this thing out.
Everybody has crazed fam damily, but the absurdity is pushed off a cliff and the characters aren't. Instead they're all monochromatic caricaturizations that don't evoke sympathy or laughs (okay, a couple of chuckles here and there).
Yet another good idea that Hollywood mangled. It could have been a good drama or a good comedy or both. Meh.
And what is it with these so-called PG family movies? This isn't a family movie and you will not want to watch it with your kids.
