National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989)

The third film of the Griswold saga; this time set at Christmas time. Clark invites the in-laws to his house for an old-fashioned family Christmas. But all doesn’t go too smoothly when the Christmas lights don’t work, his cousin shows up for a surprise visit, Uncle Lewis burns down the tree and Clark doesn’t get his long-awaited bonus check which he wants to use to put in a swimming pool. Hilarity ensues. One of the best and most humorous Christmas tales. Starring Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Randy Quaid, Diane Ladd, Doris Roberts, Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, Juliette Lewis, John Randolph, Brian Doyle-Murray, William Hickey, Johnny Galecki 7/10
