National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Comedy β€’ PG-13 β€’ Directed by: Jeremiah S. Chechik β€’ 97 minutes

The comic misadventures of the beleaguered Griswold family continue in this latest "Vacation" outing, the third and most successful of the series. (Over $71,000,000!) This time America's most dedicated dad (Chevy Chase) is determined to stay at home to create "the most fun-filled old fashioned family Christmas ever" -- but life has a particular way of throwing wet logs on Clark Griswold's fire. Look for Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus (TV's "Seinfeld") in a supporting role. Written by John Hughes ("Home Alone" series).

★★★★★
I love this film! Hilarious, ridiculous, holiday sentimental, Christmas Vacation is the best of the Vacation films. I have watched it numerous times laughing until I lose my breathe. Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo are terrific in their roles. The supporting actors do a wonderful job portraying a slightly dysfunctional family. This is a holiday must see film. — Russ'sSis

BUY IT
★★★★
This is one of my favorite movies of all time, my 2nd favorite National Lampoon Vacation movies. My 1st was the 1st one in 1983 when the Griswolds went to Wally World. Anyway they are both hilarious. If you are looking for a kid vacation movie, either this one (has one "f" word) or Vegas Vacation PG no f words. Do not show a kid Wally World vacation unless they are at least 13 Thank you — Mikesturr

Perfectly describes my family during the holidays..
★★★★★
Love it! I watch it when I need a good laugh. Never gets old. I even watch it when it isn't close to Christmas. My family is almost like the Griswolds during the holidays...anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. Love them. — jngkrnjgtr
