When Clark and Ellen are in bed after the tree with all the sap, Clark is having trouble with the magazine sticking to him. At the final scene when he turns out the lamp, you can clearly see a handle on the lamp for him to grab to making it look like it was sticking to him. Also, when his hand is supposedly stuck to Ellen's hair, you can clearly see that he's actually holding on to it and pulling it toward him. See more »

We watch this movie every Christmas on Christmas Eve (the whole family gets together).We laugh harder every year as we unpeel the humorous layers of this film.Watch for when Clark's wife checks out Snot's balls.It's hilarious.How about when Eddie returns with Clark's boss and kicks him in the ass as they walk up the path to the house.How about these quotes: "Why is there water everywhere Todd?" " I don't know Margeaux." The Ray Charles Christmas song during the attic scene is one of the most beautiful songs I've heard.His voice is so sweet.The eyes crossed,kicked by a mule,falls in a well comment still cracks me up.I love it when Clark's Dad says that if he (Clark) needs any help that he (Dad) will be up in his room taking a nap.How about the office scene? "Good morning ,kiss my ass,kiss his ass,etc."This movie is more fun to watch in a large group.Enjoy.
