Where to watch Four Christmases

In the mid-2000s, Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn became staples of the romantic comedy genre. Between Sweet Home AlabamaJust Like HeavenThe Break-Up, and Couples Retreat, the duo provided many hits that are still beloved today. In 2008, Witherspoon and Vaughn teamed up for a Christmas movie, Four Christmases.

Kate Kinkaid (Witherspoon) and Brad McVie (Vaughn) do not like spending time with their families around the holidays, but after their vacation falls through, they are forced to spend Christmas with their dysfunctional families. However, Kate and Brad both have divorced parents, meaning they have to visit each parent separately, which comes out to four Christmases.
