Review:

Christmas movies arrive like a gift every year at your local theater and home video. It never occurs to most folks though that the pretty package and paper may just hide a lump of coal. Such is the case with the comedy “Four Christmases”. ***

Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon play Brad and Kate a couple who find their perfect Christmas day cancelled out by the weather forcing them to make the round to four Christmas celebrations with family members they’d rather avoid. Brad finds the ticking of the clock torture as he must sit through a series of arguments and “fun” times while Kate hears the ticking of her biological clock in these get togethers causing the pair to really reconsider their future together. ---

Image & Sound: Arriving on Blu-ray with a nice, sharp anamorphic transfer “Four Christmases” looks like the perfect holiday gag gift with a sharp, pretty presentation. ***

Audio sounds extremely nice as well with dialogue front and center. ---

Special Features:

Special features are like a stocking stuffer—something nice to discover the Christmas morning after all the spectacular gifts you get. Sadly because the gift sucks the stocking stuffers just can’t possibly make up for the poor film. We get a featurette “Seven-Layer Holiday Meals in a Flash” (huh?). “Four Christmases: Holiday Moments”, “BD-Live material—“Christmas Meoires and Outtakes with celebrity cook Paula deen and actor Katy Mixon. We also get a gag reel, additional deleted scenes, the HBO promo featurette and a digital copy of the film that you can upload to your computer or portable device. ---

Final Words:

Beware of what you ask for because you might get it and it might not be what you really want. Folks wanted an entertaining, enlightening and touching holiday movie and instead got this pretty but empty package for Christmas.
