National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989)
Dir: Jeremiah S. Chechik
Starring: Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Juliette Lewis
Door 13 may be considered unlucky for some – none more so than with the Griswold family. That’s right, National Lampoon’s vacation is the latest Christmas film from the All Things Movies Advent calendar and its a classic holiday comedy from writer, John Hughs! Chevy Chase returns in the third outing for the family and this time they tackle the holidays together. Clark Griswold is your classic parent at this time of year, trying to keep the spirit alive while the whole things seemingly collapses around you. While the laughs may be starting to get a little old now, there is still a lot here to snuggle down with as we head to towards the big day!
“WORSE? How could things get any worse? Take a look around here, Ellen. We’re at the threshold of hell.”
