In the most surreal and, Santa help us, only truly interesting moment in "Fred Claus," none other than former presidential sibling Roger Clinton stands up and delivers a heartfelt confession about the pain of living in a more accomplished brother's shadow.

And that's all the pathos or humor you're likely to find in this holiday-tinted tale of sibling rivalry, in which Vince Vaughn and "Wedding Crashers" director David Dobkin reunite for the most anemic Christmas comedy since, oh, the last time Tim Allen donned white whiskers and a fat-suit.

The last time I heard from Roger's former girlfriend, he was still delinquent in his child support payments. I won't be surprised if Bill is making those payments for Roger now - per Hillary's demand.
