So I saw Four Christmases.... yes that's how you spell it... doesn't a plural Christmas look strange?!
I am a holiday hype hater. I cringe at the sound of a premature "Deck the Halls." I shiver when "Santa" spooks me at CVS on Black Friday (apparently he hangs out there these days). I dread the moment when candy canes replace candy corn. Rushing the seasons makes me feel like October - January is just one jam packed holiday month.
But then I reach a time when I start accepting it 'tis the season. I watch as many holiday movies as possible, (Home Alone is my fav, but I only own it on VHS), I eat lots of holiday can sweets (which all taste best with ice cream) and see those new Holiday Movie releases.
Which is why I saw Four Christmases tonight with my faux hawk loving mom... who unfortunately chooses not to sport her new do in public...yet.
The film had all the ingredients for a holiday flick:
1.) A Predictable Plot - I mean the title is called 4 Christmas... guess what Resse and Vince spend the entire 124 minutes doing....
2.) Things That Don't Happen In Real Life - live reporters do not put unsuspecting people live on camera and this certainly would never happen on more than one occasion
3.) Egg Nog - I see more egg nog in holiday movies than I do in real life - which makes me sad because I like egg nog
I've come to accept it ...
So this is Christmas....
