"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

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 mayn't be one of my favourite Christmas movies, but it is one of the funnier ones for me. I agree some of it is silly, and when I say silly I mean silly, and the story is really quite predictable. But it at least looks good with some nice cinematography and scenery, and the music is fine too. The script has many funny moments and the sight gags while silly are respectable.

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.

“It mayn't be one of my favourite Christmas movies, but it is one of the funnier ones for me. I agree some of it is silly, and when I say silly I mean silly, and the story is really quite predictable. But it at least looks good with some nice cinematography and scenery, and the music is fine too. The script has many funny moments and the sight gags while silly are respectable. The direction is competent and the performances from Chevy Chase and Beverley D'Angelo are likable while Randy Quaid gives some great relief as a decidedly obnoxious relative. So in conclusion, no masterpiece but it is entertaining, that's what matters to me. 8/10 Bethany Cox” read more

Tis The Season For My Fave X-Mas Films & Specials (30 movies items)

"In this third installment of the Vacation series, the adventures the Griswolds continues during the time of gift-giving and carefree caroling. 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 cooler than Santa Clause. Not to mention, this was also a time when he was actually, believe it or not, kinda funny. "

"24.12. Lupaavasta alusta siirrytään karmeaan slapstickiin oitkästyttävyyksiin asti venytettyine vitseineen ja typerine juonikuviointineen ennalta-arvattavuuksineen. Aivoton loppuratkaisu on melkein jopa loukkaava. Olen ehkä puoli tähteä liian armollinen, mutta muutama hyvä roolisuoritus ja slapstackin taakse kätketty perusjuoni on kuitenkin jopa melkein toimii jollain tasolla."
