Joe Don Baker,
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. Written by
When the police storm into the house, Ellen jokingly tells them this is the family's first kidnapping, which is actually wrong. In National Lampoon's National Lampoon's Vacation (1983), Clark kidnaps the security guard at Walley World and forces him to take the family on the rides. See more »
About midway through Clark's rant, a crewperson's head dips into the bottom left corner of one of the long shots. See more »
Since the holidays are approaching, I feel I should comment on this Christmas classic. Chevy Chase is hilarious once again as Clark, and this is the funniest Vacation next to the original when they go to Wally World. Some of the funniest lines too: "Gonna burn some dust here, eat my rubber." "It is a bit nipply out, I mean nippy out!". A Christmas movie to own , and if you don't, worthy of a rent at the holidays. Randy Quaid has some great moments as Eddie, and don't miss Chase's run down the hill in the sled!
