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
Clark says it will be the merriest Christmas "since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny Kaye," a reference to the film White Christmas. That film also featured Rosemary Clooney, while this film features Diane Ladd. Ladd is the mother of actress Laura Dern, and Clooney was the mother of actor Miguel Ferrer. Dern and Ferrer appeared together on Twin Peaks. See more »
When the family is on the way to get the tree and the pickup gets behind them, it cuts to a rear shot of the pickup and the car. You can clearly see 3 heads through the rear of the truck. When it cuts to the shot through the windshield (and successive shots), there are only 2 people in the truck. See more »

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.
