Four Christmases

Ryan and I took a mini date night last night. After our taco night dinner we walked down to the theater and saw Four Christmases. I thought it was funny and cute. I mean it wasn't as good as Elf or some of the other Christmas flicks I love, but it was well worth it. Here is a little synopsis if you don't know what it is about:

When upscale, happily unmarried San Francisco couple Kate and Brad find themselves socked in by fog on Christmas morning, their exotic vacation plans morph into the family-centric holiday they had, until now, gleefully avoided. Out of obligation--and unable to escape--they trudge to not one, not two, but four relative-choked festivities, increasingly mortified to find childhood fears raised, adolescent wounds reopened... and their very future together uncertain. As Brad counts the hours to when he can get away from their parents, step-parents, siblings and an assortment of nieces and nephews, Kate is starting to hear the ticking of a different kind of clock. And by the end of the day, she is beginning to wonder if their crazy families' choices are not so crazy after all.
