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
One of three screenplays mentioned by Blake Snyder in his book, "Save the Cat", as an example of a good logline. It is the only one of the scripts mentioned that became a completed film. He also says that all three speculative scripts sold in the six to seven figure range. See more »
A news crew is shown doing a live report with a wireless video camera, a technology that wasn't in use in 2008, when the film takes place. This is likely to be merely an instance of not including a cord that cast or crew might trip over. See more »
I'm sorry, I didn't know there was a $10 spending cap.
Well, maybe if you came home more than once a decade, you'd know crap like that!

The French release, distributed by Metropolitan Filmexport replaces the opening title card with one featuring the French title "Tout...Sauf En Famille" (which translates to Anywhere...Except Amongst Family) instead of having the original English title and subtitling it with the French one as is more common. Also, while an English title is displayed during the end credits, that one is not "Four Christmases" but "Anywhere But Home", the international English title for the film. See more »
I don't know why everyone hates on this movie, I laugh through the entire thing. I have seen it probably 5 times now, and still enjoy it. It also has a stellar cast with Robert Devall, Tim McGraw, I mean come on, it even has Dwight Yoakam in it. It's funny, light hearted, and sweet at the end. Anyway, I just thought people should give it a chance. It had bad reviews when it came out, and my mom and I saw it in theaters and disagreed with the reviews then.
