Even a renowned screen grouch like Danny De Vito has been caught exposing his soppy side for the sake of the seasonal box office, so I feared the worst when Robert Duvall showed up among the cast of the current end-of-year comedy, Four Holidays. Duvall is actually at his misanthropic best here as Howard, a crusty old divorcee who enjoys the holidays because they give his sons a chance to get together and fight.His has one of the most menacing laughs in pictures - a nasal rattle crackling with malice, it comes straight from Deliverance country and you only have to hear it once to understand why Vince Vaughn's Brad would do anything to avoid having it directed at him on Christmas Day.As they brace themselves for a marathon of homecomings, Brad and Kate expect the worst, but are nevertheless unable to prepare themselves enough for what they get.Reese Witherspoon addresses those rumors that she and Vince Vaughn did not get along — at all — on the set of "Four Christmases." Something about her wanting to plan everything out and him preferring to wing it?I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and all that jazz, so if you have any corrections, feel free to drop me a line. At least you'll have some Four Christmases quotes (or even a monologue or two) to annoy your coworkers with in the meantime, right? Which I would have come to regret because I would have found out... If we'd met in college, our relationship, probably would've developed between us.
Having both come from dysfunctional families, with divorced parents and siblings with out-of-control kids, the two disdain the idea of getting married or having kids.
Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn in Four Christmases The conflict between Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn on the set of Four Christmases was textbook Hollywood misogyny: the nagging, type-A 'icy' actress and the laid-back, unprepared actor who just wants to have fun, man, so lay off.
The pair, playing a couple forced to visit all four of their divorced parents over the holiday season, were reported to have found each other entirely repulsive on set.
ONE of the hazards of being a film reviewer is the Christmas movie.
It puts you at risk of saccharin poisoning almost every year.
