  • National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is a 1989 American Christmas comedy film directed by Jeremiah S. Chechik. It is the third installment in National Lampoon's Vacation film series, and was written by John Hughes, based on his short story in National Lampoon magazine, "Christmas '59".

  • So, I realize I'm a couple months late with my review, but better late than never because I have to bring to the videophiles of Amazon's attention the fact that in a strange twist of "false-advertising," Warner Home Video appears to be packaging the 25th Anniversary Edition from 2015 in the original box from 2006, specs and all.

  • Since the holidays are approaching, I feel I should comment on this Christmas classic. Chevy Chase is hilarious once again as Clark, and this is the funniest Vacation next to the original when they go to Wally World.
