jourchristmasses.jpgLet me say a few things before offering up the trailer for the Christmas comedy, Four Christmases. First, it’s good to see Vince Vaughn again. I’m not sure what’s going on with this guy, but he hasn’t had a film since last year’s pretty awful Fred Claus, and after Four Christmases, he only has one on tap, in 2010. I’d like to think he was holding out for good scripts, but the evidence doesn’t actually support that. Still, whether he’s in a good or a bad movie, I’m of the opinion that the world needs more Vince Vaughn.

Second, it’s also nice to see Reese Witherspoon — at least in theory — pull the corn cob out of her ass and finally do a dumb comedy (though, if reports from the set are any indication — in practice — she had the corn cob shoved up into her uvula).

Finally, I love that Seth Gordon — who directed the sublime King of Kong — is getting a chance to direct a studio film.

Unfortunately, it’s really all for naught, because if the trailer is any indication, Four Christmases is gonna blow, even with a cool Jon Favreau role and what looks like a small part for Peter Billingsley, who was little Ralphie Parker in A Christmas Story (he’s the airline agent in the trailer).
