A Christmas Staple!
I love this movie! It happens to be the best of the National Lampoon 'Vacation' movies and I make it a 'must-see' during the holidays! It just doesn't feel like Christmas until I've seen both "National Lampoon Christmas Vacation" and "A Christmas Story". I agree with others that it happens to be Chevy Chase's funniest (downhill from there on out!) and Randy Quaid's performance was on the money. Trust me, we all have at least one person in our family who reminds us of 'Cousin Eddie'! Consider me an 80's child but these movies make the holidays much more funnier to get through. Especially when the 'family' come to visit! Enjoy it!
Not Bad At All
I just viewed the 'made for TV' movie and I thought that it was pretty good! I read both books over ten years ago and considering, it turned out to be better than I had expected, although I thought that the second book (The Regulators) was much better than the first (Desperation)! Ron Perlman was excellent (as usual!) along with Tom Skerritt. The supporting cast were pretty good also (Charles Durning and Matt Fewer were somewhat 'under used'). I was also quite impressed with how they stuck with the religious 'tone' of the story seeing how sensitive that people are nowadays. But all in all, it kept my 13 year old son 'glued' to the 'set after I explained the first and second book to him.
It doesn't compare to "The Stand" which I found absolutely fantastic but for a three hour film, it holds it's ground! Like myself and my son, we are hoping that Mr. King already have the follow-up, "The Regulators" already in the works. And if you haven't read both books yet, now would be a good time to find these 'gems' and read them. Trust me, you will not be able to put them down! King at his finest!!!!
