Christmas Countdown: Christmas Vacation (1989)

December 10, 2011

Every day from December 1st to 24th, we will be counting down to Christmas by profiling holiday classics both old and new.  Arranged in chronological order, these are some of our favourites to watch every year.  Enjoy!

Watching Christmas Vacation, it’s clear that the screenplay was written by the great John Hughes.  This is a hilarious and sometimes outrageous comedy that also allows for a few genuinely sweet moments.  Chevy Chase stars as Clark Griswold, a bumbling but honest man just trying to give his entire family a nice time at Christmas.  Just when you think things can’t get any funnier, Cousin Eddie (Randy Quaid) shows up.  Watch this one now, and you will spend the rest of the season quoting the ridiculously funny dialogue.
