The Reviews for Christmas Vacation (1989) 720p

Poor Clark Griswold, no matter how optimistic he is, his familyvacations always seem to go severely wrong. First time around he wentacross America in a metallic pea Station Wagon and it ended indisaster. Then they went across Europe and met similar, albeit muchless funny, results.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Griswolds, Clark is foodadditives expert who works for a company that doesn't appreciate him.He sets high standards for holiday events that no one can live up toand is notorious for dragging his grudging family along on everypainstaking detail of every scheme. His wife Ellen (Beverly D'Angelo)is the voice of reason, who keeps the family rooted in reality andresponds with frequent deadpan bewilderment to his constant disasters.The long-suffering kids, Russ and Audrey (Johnny Galecki and a veryyoung Juliette Lewis) have turned into the living embodiment of purecynicism, but there's no talking any sense into Clark Griswold. Ever!

But now Clark just wants to stay at home in the snowy Chicago suburbsfor a 'fun, old-fashioned, family Christmas' and he's going to letnothing stop him. His enthusiasm for the holidays manages to infect theaudience and you'll be rooting for him the whole way. He's ananti-Scrooge and if you're having a Christmas crisis then you need towatch this movie. Any disasters can be overcome.

But that's easier said than done. He didn't bargain on bickering familymembers (including the voice of Betty Boop, Mae Questel, as a senileold aunt), a house covered in non-working Christmas lights, a seriouslyover-cooked turkey, snotty Yuppie neighbors making fun of him or CousinEddie (Randy Quaid) and his hickabilly family turning up unannounced tosponge some Christmas cheer off him.

What stops it from being just another generic Christmas movie is abrilliant script by John Hughes packed full of hilarious set-pieces andperfect comic timing from Chevy Chase. He's a great actor but hisappeal sadly declined in the 90s when he refused to evolve into moreserious roles like Bill Murray did. Clark Griswold and Fletch areprobably his most famous roles and this Vacation is definitely one youneed to take.

It's hard to pick the best moments but Randy Quaid's sudden appearancewill make you grin a mile wide, a cat wrapped up in a box (with HappyBirthday paper!) that meets an unfortunate end and 'an asshole in hisbathrobe emptying a chemical toilet into the sewer' are just plainbrilliant. But what gives Christmas Vacation something more that makesit so much more special that all the other Christmas movies is thatwonderful theme song! It's absolutely brilliant! But that ain't theonly great tune the film as to offer. There are also some classic songsby Ray Charles, Bing Crosby and Gene Autry.

Although not the best of the bunch (Harold Ramis' direction had an eviledge to the first film that made it just that little bit better), thisfilm has become a Yuletide classic and must be watched every year.Since Christmas is full of annual traditions this film is definitelyone you should add to the list. It would criminal to give it anythingless that the highly coveted 10/10.

I really can't imagine a better and funnier Christmas movieReviewed bykrautR-930-608582Vote: 10/10

I think it's not necessary to write too much about this film.It's simply a masterpiece.In my opinion only Billy Wilder possibly-POSSIBLY-could have made an even better Christmas movie.For me that says a lot.

This is my second review.The first one was about "Rambo II" It's difficult to imagine something more contrasting than these two movies.

Whereas "Rambo II" represents (and shows) the bad,evil and disgusting things on earth,"Christmas Vacation" represents (and shows) the good,pleasant and beautiful ones.

For example the incredibly beautiful woman in the store.Chevy Chase's reaction is so funny!! And quite understandable as well.Who wouldn't have reacted similarly...

All characters-really ALL-in the movie are played excellently. Yes,also Audrey's.Juliette Lewis had to play the same character as,for example,Pamela Tiffin in "one,two three"-more or less a silly goose.

It's quite understandable If you don't like such characters-but-as in the case of "one,two,three"-why blame the actors for playing them convincingly? By the way,Griswold's yuppie neighbors also don't make a very pleasant impression- because (not although) they are played so well.

For me-and obviously for many others too-Christmas without "Christmas Vacation" cannot be a real Christmas.I would like to watch it more often than once a year,but I have the-unjustified,many may say-fear of liking this masterpiece somewhat less if I watch it "too" often.

Funniest Christmas movie ever madeReviewed byZbigniew_KrycsiwikiVote: 10/10

The film has several references to the original National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation: opening scene, with the family singing in the car, is similar to an early scene in the original Vacation; their car flying over snowbank is similar to car flying over roadblock in Arizona in Vacation; another befuddled, elderly aunt drops in, but the movie is good enough that it doesn't become a rehash of the first film.

It takes its time getting started; the first thirty minutes are hit and miss, but after that, it gets good, and the final thirty minutes are hilarious.

Aunt Bethany is introduced with some funny lines ("Is your house on fire?" she cheerfully asks upon seeing 25.000 Christmas lights on it) but filmmakers wisely avoided a repeat of Aunt Edna from the original, as this confused granny lives happily through the holiday.

Speaking of *holiday*, 'Holiday Road' worked well in the original Vacation, was tired and formulaic in Euro Vacation, and was wisely avoided here, and replaced with a wonderful original score.

The music, and the overall tone of the entire film, is sentimental without being overly sappy; Clark watching old home movies of his youth has just the right amount of sentiment, then it was ended perfectly with a well done gag.

Uncle Lewis is a delightful Grinch, with his strangled voice and deadpan delivery of lines which could have been painfully unfunny complaints, but his delivery and timing makes them work.

The kids are great replacements, upgrades, for the two awful, nitwit kids in Euro Vacation.

My favourite film in the National Lampoon's Vacation series, and probably my favourite Christmas movie, also.
