- Synopsis / Plot
- A couple struggle to visit all four of their divorced parents on Christmas Day. When upscale, happily unmarried San Francisco couple Kate and Brad find themselves socked in by fog on Christmas morning, their exotic vacation plans morph into the family-centric holiday they had, until now, gleefully avoided. Out of obligation-and unable to escape-they trudge to not one, not two, but four relative-choked festivities, increasingly mortified to find childhood fears raised, adolescent wounds reopened…and their very future together uncertain. As Brad counts the hours to when he can get away from their parents, step-parents, siblings and an assortment of nieces and nephews, Kate is starting to hear the ticking of a different kind of clock. And by the end of the day, she is beginning to wonder if their crazy families’ choices are not so crazy after all.
- Critics' reviews
"We got two gold-record singers and they don't sing? So? We got five Oscar-winning actors, and they don't need to act much. (...) Rating: ★★ (out of four)."
Roger Ebert: Chicago Sun-Times
"One and a half Christmases is about all that's worth celebrating in Four Christmases. (...) The film has its funny moments, but they are too few to make the holiday excursion worthwhile. (...) Rating: ★★ (out of four)."
Claudia Puig: USA Today
