Storyline

Brad and Kate have been together three years, in love, having fun, doing all sorts of things together with no intention of marriage or children. Christmas morning, they're on their way to Fiji, having told their two sets of divorced parents that they're off to do charity work. Through a fluke, they have no choice but to visit each of their four idiosyncratic parents. As the day progresses, Brad and Kate remember growing up, each learns more about the other, and Kate realizes that her life may not be as good as it could be. Do they know each other well enough to weather the storms families bring? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Vince Vaughn didn't go out to promote the film after it was rumored in gossip columns that he and Reese Witherspoon did not get along throughout filming. See more »

Goofs

(at around 49 mins) Pastor Phil, beginning the church Nativity Pageant, says, "Are we ready to see the results of that immaculate conception?" implying that the "results" are the birth of Jesus. The title "Immaculate Conception" refers not to Jesus but to his mother the Virgin Mary, without Original Sin (thus, Immaculate) in the womb of her mother, Saint Anne. Mixing up these two events is a common misconception. See more »

Cute movie but interesting editing or lack thereof..
13 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My friend and I saw this movie tonight and did get a few laughs. We really liked the cast and thought overall the movie was "cute".

We both noticed how Reese Witherspoon's hair kept "changing".. In the same clip the camera would be on her and her bangs would be straight and side-swept. Camera goes to Vince Vaughn. Camera goes back to Witherspoon and her bangs are fuller and covering her forehead. The color would change from scene to scene. It was bizarre. We laughed more at the hair issue than the movie itself. We wondered how many others in the audience noticed. It was really obvious.

Clearly we are easily entertained... ;-)
