National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989)

 national lampoons christmas vacation“She falls down a well, her eyes go cross. She gets kicked by a mule. They go back. I don’t know.” – Eddie

Number of Times Seen – Between 3-5 times (cable, video and 20 Jul 2014)

Brief Synopsis – The Griswalds celebrate Christmas the way they do everything else: with family, friends and mayhem.

My Take on it – It’s always fun seeing the Griswalds in action because Chevy Chase is perfect as the very silly Clark.

It was great seeing their extended family with each of their own quirks.

Randy Quaid is back as the zany cousin and steals just about every scene he appears in.

Juliette Lewis and Johnny Galecki are great as the very young children of the Griswalds.

Not as funny as the original, but still done well.

Bottom Line – Another fun Griswald family adventure, but still not as good as the original. Nice seeing young Juliette Lewis and Johnny Galecki as the kids.

Rating – Globe Worthy
