National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1-Dec-1989)

Director: Jeremiah S. Chechik

Writer: John Hughes

Keywords: Comedy, Christmas, Vacation

Clark Griswold, food additives expert, and his family celebrate Christmas at their suburban Chicago home as a parade of relatives make their appearances, uninvited and not. Most particularly, Aunt Bethany and Cousin Eddie. Of course, this being the Griswolds, nothing can go as planned despite Clark's boundless enthusiasm. Second sequel to National Lampoon's Vacation (1983), and one of very few gems by National Lampoon.
