National Lampoon's Christmas Classic!!!

"Where do you think you're going? Nobody's leaving. Nobody's walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney... read more

Classic family fun.

This is one of the imperative films that I watch every single christmas and it never gets old. Contrary to the bemoaning of the TV christmas film schedule that I hear from my family, I pray that this classic is shown every year. It encapsulates the mood of christmas perfectly for me.

Chevy Chase and his band of SNL men are perhaps my favourite acto... read more

Very wacky Christmas film!

I wasn't interested at first in seeing this film because it just seemed like a waste but a good friend really wanted to watch it so I did. When I did see it, I was blown away by how good it turned out to be. The comedy was often rather silly because of all the mistakes Clark makes. Also, it was rather clever because some of those things could have happened normally especially when under pressure. ... read more

It's Christmas time and the Griswolds are preparing for a family seasonal celebration, but things never run smoothly for Clark, his wife Ellen and their two kids. Clark's continual bad luck is worsened by his obnoxious family guests, but he manages to keep going knowing that his Christmas bonus is due soon.

Top 20 Favourite Comedies (20 movies items)

" No Christmas Eve is complete until I watch this '80s comedy gem. Out of the Vacation series, this is easily my favourite. It's a perfect storm of elements, from John Hughes' script to the massive ensemble which brings tonnes of laughs. One funny scene leads into another funny scene, and you never get bored. Before you know it, it's over, and you're sitting there with a big grin on your face. I watch it once a year and nothing more, which keeps its novelty value in check."
