‘Four Christmases’ is the #1 Movie In America. What The Hell?

So, anyone watch this yet? I’m sure it’s a great flick, but you’d expect something different w/ films like “Bond” in the mix. Here’s more:

Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon’s comedy won the robust weekend with a much-better-than-expected $46.7 mil from Wednesday through Sunday, according to early estimates. That makes it the third-best Thanksgiving weekend opener ever, after Toy Story 2 ($80.1 mil) and last year’s Enchanted ($49.1 mil). The film also grossed a hefty $31.7 mil over the traditional three-day weekend (and fair warning, I’m going to be giving both five-day and three-day totals in this report, so get focused — you know, drink some coffee before reading on, or something). That’s Vaughn’s top premiere sum since The Break-Up’s $39.2 mil two and a half years ago, and Witherspoon’s best bow since Sweet Home Alabama’s $35.6 mil more than six years back. [EW]

Very cute movie. Loved Cars and Over the Hedge, too. I'll dread the day I don't have an excuse to watch them in the theater. But, there's always grandkids.

At least you get a winter. I curl up with either a Stephen King or an Anne Rice novel and a cup of coffee.

YES, Loved, Ratatouille! In the meantime, I'll go back to my Gaimen Sandman novels, or Anne Rice.

It's winter here anyway, so not much to do otherwise.

I've given up on movies. I'd rather read. They keep putting the same 5 actors in the same movies (plus 15 sequels). It gets old after a while.

I get a bigger kick outta kiddie movies.

Kinda like the high hopes I had for ROLE MODELS, which was ok at moments.

I saw the movie and it's as bad as you probably think it is. Vince Vaughn is so one note; he plays the same character in every film.

However, Reese is really hot, despite the chin.

She's got nice legs for a skinny chick. Pretty good actress, too. The movie looks stupid, but funny.

The only movie that looks reasonably decent is Bolt.

I would suck her toes and toss her salad til her chin became round.
