National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is the third instalment of the Griswold family saga and a significant improvement over their previous European Vacation. Disaster-prone dad (Chevy Chase) discovers just how dangerous the Christmas season really is as the Griswolds' old-fashioned holiday celebration turns out to be more "Bah! Humbug!" than Christmas cheer. Chase is right at home with the outrageous slapstick and often cheerfully tasteless humour, and John Hughes's script is stuffed full of classic Christmas movie references, but Randy Quaid practically steals the... film as the unemployed relative with his malicious grin and mooching lifestyle. Not exactly a holiday classic and a bit spotty, this gag-filled comedy is just obnoxious enough for the Scrooge lurking inside everyone. And fear not, a happy ending awaits all. Watch for future star Juliette Lewis as Chase's teenage daughter. --Sean Axmaker [show more]

The Griswolds' Christmas holiday is anything but an occasion for peace on earth and there's certainly not much goodwill to spare when the rest of the repulsive family arrive for a spot of rejoicing. The third in the series is one of the best - who hasn't lived through the horror of hanging the Christmas lights and then spending hours looking for the one bulb that's broken?

In the third instalment of the Vacation series the Griswold family decide to spend the Christmas season at home. Needless to say it is not as quiet as they had planned. Unexpected relatives and a catalogue of disasters create enough pandemonium to keep them busy.
