But not this year. Shorts and sunglasses packed, Brad and Kate are trapped at the San Francisco airport by a fogbank that cancels every outbound flight. Worse yet, they are caught on camera by a local news crew, revealing their whereabouts to the whole city... and to their families. With no escape and no excuses, they are now expected home by Brad's Father and Kate's mother. Four Christmases Four Christmases © New Line Cinema
And Brad's mother (Sissy Spacek) and Kate's father (Jon Voight). Four Christmases in one day. As they brace themselves for a marathon of homecomings, Brad and Kate expect the worst- and that's exactly what they get. But as Brad counts down the minutes to their freedom, Kate surprisingly finds herself tuned to the ticking of a different clock. Four Christmases Four Christmases © New Line Cinema.

At the end of the day, each will gain a new perspective on where they came from... and where they're going. Getting to know themselves and each other as they really are could finally give them a chance at the kind of love they've only been playing at. Four Christmases Four Christmases © New Line Cinema.

Consensus voice: "Four Christmases is a fun and fascinating -- if ultimately featherweight -- comedy not only for the whole family, but for every kind of them" --Todd Gilchrist, IGN Movies Four Christmases Four Christmases © New Line Cinema. Review © David Bruce
"The bottom line is, no one can drive you crazy like your family. Still, you'll drive 100 miles in the snow, sit in airports for hours, just to be with them on the holidays. It's the human condition. We cannot deny them. -- Producer Jonathan Glickman Identity, family background, and transparence are emphasized themes. Four Christmases Four Christmases © New Line Cinema. Review © David Bruce
George Burns comically said, Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city. And I believe this is the very premise that the film is based. Family used to live closer together, now they dont. Schools, careers, divorce and remarriage spread families all over the landscape. It is hard to stay connected, and especially so with broken families – which this film is about. Madeleine Albright wisely said, I don't want to sound Pollyannaish, but I hope that out of a tragedy like this something good will come. I hope we understand we're one family. This film is a terrific reminder of this truth, and it speaks to the responsibility we each have in maintaining loving connections. Four Christmases Four Christmases Review © David Bruce
Vince Vaughn: "Ultimately, the story is about what the holiday season itself is largely about: being thankful for your familythe good, the bad and the ugly of it and being appreciative for the love you have. Of course, none of that has to get in the way of having a lot of fun." Four Christmases Four Christmases © New Line Cinema. Review © David Bruce
Family is so important. You have to accept them as they are because, honestly, they're not going to change --Reese Witherspoon Four Christmases Four Christmases © New Line Cinema
