Why did it take so long for Mrs. Shirley to call the authorities and report that her husband was kidnapped? The scene in which Mrs. Shirley calls the authorities does not take place until after Mr. Shirley arrives at the Griswolds' house, but it would have made more sense for the scene to take place immediately after Eddie's RV leaves the Shirley residence, particularly when considering how quickly the police were able to arrive at the Griswolds' house after Mr. Shirley did.

This is the one Christmas movie that I don't anyone can ever get tired of. Chevy Chase returns in the third installment of the Vacation series as Clarke W. Griswold as he tries desperately to maintain his sanity during the holidays with all of his relatives coming to stay under his roof and enduring all the mishaps along the way.
This is the funniest film in the series plain and simple. Chevy Chase has never been better. Christmas Vacation is filled with countless jokes and gags that it's impossible not to laugh.
