National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation Review

Image for National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

The Griswold family's plans for a big family Christmas predictably turn into a big disaster.

★★★★

Unfairly, this has been judged a lesser entry in the National Lampoon stable, though itís arguably only second to the original vacation and proves that Chevy Chase was once funny. Clarke (Chase) does his best to orchestrate a traditional happy family Christmas, but is thwarted by odious relatives and plain old bad luck.

If it doesn't make you at least giggle, then you clearly don't understand the true meaning of the festive season - which is of course combustible toilets and electrified cats.
