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.

"UNKNOWN: I have no idea what day I watched this on, I just know I watched it sometime this month. I'm not a fan of crude humor and that seems to be all this movie has, so I was not a big fan of it. However, I think it had some endearing moments, so I rated it a little higher than I normally would have, but I wasn't really impressed."

The Parts of Me (16 movies items)

"Clark Griswold Why? Because even though I'm not a father yet, I know that I'll be like Clark Griswold. Somewhat pathetic, working hard to get my money, but most of all: trying to make the family happy to the best of my abilities and most of the time fail trying...but once in a blue moon, there will be the time when I will feel proud to call myself a good father."

25 From 89: My Favorite Films of 1989 (25 movies items)

"In this third installment of the Vacation series, the adventures the Griswolds continues during the time of gift-giving and carefree carolling. And in keeping with their family tradition, they find that no matter what season it is, their luck is always gonna be bad. Yuletide holiday merriment and cheer from back during a period when Chevy Chase was considered to be a comedian cooler than Santa Clause. Not to mention, this was also a time when he was actually, believe it or not, kinda funny. "

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."
