    "Four Christmases" Came Out 15 Years Ago, And I Honestly Forgot That So Many Celebs Were In The Film

    From Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon to Tim McGraw and Kristin Chenoweth.

    Holiday movie season is finally here, which means it's time to rewatch (or watch for the first time) Four Christmases.

    Better yet, the movie is celebrating its 15th anniversary. Four Christmases was released on Nov. 26, 2008, and it's a true look at late-aughts culture and style.

    The movie stars Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon as a couple who reluctantly must visit each of their parents' separate Christmas events. The comedy has a seriously impressive supporting cast, including Mary Steenburgen, Tim McGraw, Kristin Chenoweth, Sissy Spacek, Jon Favreau, and Robert Duvall.
