Robert Duvall has been cast alongside Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon in Four Christmases.  A movie in which “a couple struggle[s] to visit all four of their divorced parents on Christmas Day.”

That’s right, Vince Vaughn is doing another Christmas movie.  Hey, I like Vince Vaughn.  He’s got that Bill Murray quality going for him where he can even look good in a crappy movie, like Made or The Break Up.  But dude, Christmas movies?  Has there ever been a good Christmas movie?  Nothing can make elf ninjas work.  Especially not campy elf slapstick (okay, hyperealistic elf gore might work).  Doing Christmas movies is like starring opposite a monkey, or someone from Blue Collar Comedy.

Ask yourself this, Vaughn: do you want to become Tim Allen?  Even my neighbor Phil the dyslexic burn victim* would kill himself if he woke up as Tim Allen.

*Who has a terrible sense of humor, btw.  Seriously man, get over yourself.
