Every year always adds at year one more holiday film to the large list that receive high rotation on TV at this film of the year. Of course, it’s a mixed bag, since for every Elf there is a Christmas with the Kranks.
In the more high profile of the two holiday films opening this year (the other one, Nothing Like the Holidays, opens next week), Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon find themselves visiting all four of their divorced parents in one day.
Dysfunctional holidays films like this one are quite common, with my personal favourite being National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
This film is a bit more on the formulaic side, even though there were plenty of laughs thanks to the great Vince Vaughn.
In the end, it was an alright film that I couldn’t mind seeing again if airs on TV sometime in the future.
