Here is the “Four Christmases” plot description:

In the comedy “Four Christmases,” Brad (Vince Vaughn) and Kate (Reese Witherspoon) are a happy, loving and normal couple. In order to stay that way, they have managed to avoid spending extended time with their decidedly abnormal families at all costs and especially during the holidays.

This year’s plan was the same as always: make up a believable excuse to miss Christmas and instead head to sunny Fiji for a holiday week of relaxation and fun. But chance intervenes as bad weather has grounded all flights.

When a news reporter covering the story catches Brad and Kate on camera, their cell phones start ringing. They’re caught red handed. Their families now know. Goodbye, Fiji. Hello, trouble.

Brad and Kate are now forced to face their worst fears by visiting all four of their divorced parents in one day and celebrate four Christmases.

One house is tougher and more revealing than the next in a constant comedy of errors that will ultimately test the strength of their relationship. One thing is for sure: it will be a Christmas they will never forget no matter how hard they try.

“Four Christmases” is directed by Seth Gordon (“The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters”) and stars Robert Duvall, Jon Favreau, Mary Steenbugen, Dwight Yoakam, Tim McGraw, Kristin Chenoweth, Jon Voight and Sissy Spacek. This film is not yet rated.

no horrors for me

I’m happy to say that I can’t really recall a Christmas horror story, all of my Christmases thus far have been amazingly average, but maybe that’s a horror in itself? :-)

My best Christmas horror

My best Christmas horror story is probably when my boss told me that I couldn’t go home to California to celebrate Christmas with my family 3 days before Christmas and I had to cancel my plane ticket. And then, on Christmas Eve morning (of course I was at my horror job), my little sister calls me in tears because my family won some free vacation thing for four in Hawaii and are flying out to it and (there’s 6 in our family) and she got left behind.

The guy that I was dating at the time, helped me pay for a last minute plane ticket for my little sister to fly from California to Chicago that very evening to spend the christmas with me. So, I guess - that horror story had a happy ending. And that guy that I was dating? 7 years later and he’s my husband :)

Most of my Christmases have

Most of my Christmases have been great, although last year we lost my dad during the holiday season, so it was a little difficult dealing with Christmas for the first time without him.

Xmas horror story

No Christmas horror storiesKiss. They’ve all been very nice especially when I travel for the holiday. I usually try to visit my relatives in the warm states. I’d love to see this movie.

Xmas horrors

Being stuck in airports… Kansas City nonetheless. Being stuck in airports during the holiday season is the worst.
