RATE IT! Four Christmases


A modern day gem of a Christmas movie is about as hard to come by as an Elmo doll on Black Friday. Seriously, just give it a think for a moment. In the last few years we've had 'Elf', 'Love Actually' and um, that's it really! We'd have to step back into the 80s to pick up 'One Magic Christmas', 'Christmas Vacation', and...not much else. See! A good holiday movie is a dime a dozen (and don't get me started on the dreadful 'The Holiday'. Kate Winslet should be ashamed!).

Well, I've been very good this year -- no pouting, no crying -- so I'm hoping that Santa will deliver a stellar Christmas movie in today's theatrical release, 'Four Christmases.'

For starters, its pedigree is quite impressive. It stars Reese Witherspoon, who rarely chooses a stinker of a script, and Vince Vaughn is worth a laugh or five, so hopefully this flick will deliver the Christmas cheer. And its premise is right on target. Who hasn't had a Christmas that wasn't all sugar plums and harmonious family dinners? Exactly! We've all been there! All bets are on that this charmer will restore our faith in holiday movies and give us all something to laugh about after a tough year. Even Santa would pledge that we deserve it!

As long as it's better than that thing that came out last Christmas with Cameron Diaz and Jack Black, the movie will be fine. I might even see it.

I love Christmas movies (including The Holiday) so really hope this is a good one. If not I'll just have to give Love Actually and Miracle on 34 Street a few more runs.

Only problem is, I'm not a huge Cinema fan, so it'll be March before I'm likely to see this.

This very funny, very sharp little comedy is fast becoming the underrated cult film of the year
