Strong cast lends some holiday glitter to 'Four Christmases'
After last year's "Fred Claus" and now this year's "Four Christmases," I wonder if Vince Vaughn is planning on coming out with a somewhat sarcastic look at the holidays every November. Of course, the comparison isn't entirely fair. "Fred Claus" was geared for a family audience while...

Movie survives with funny, fake news tidbits
The Onion Movie NNNN (out of 5) It seems funny to me that The Onion Movie came out on DVD the same week as the dreck-fest Meet the Spartans. While one was utterly unfunny and a travesty on celluloid, the other was quite clever. While I blame Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer...
