National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is another in the series of movies about the Griswold family of Chicago. Chevy Chase (Clark Griswold) is a food scientist who has planned the ultimate “perfect old fashioned family Christmas” for his large family. Like all other movies in this series, however, hilarious problems occur throughout the movie. Clark mainly has to deal with his grumpy relatives, including the unexpected visit of his broke and sloppy brother Eddie (Randy Quaid). Eddie’s children, Ruby Sue and Rocky, don’t believe that Santa exists, because they have “gotten the shaft” in the last few Christmas’ due to Eddie’s unemployment issues. For a perfect Christmas, Clark buys presents for Eddie’s whole family, which leads Eddie to bring Clark a quite unacceptable present at the close of the film. Clark has also planned to buy the entire family a swimming pool with his bonus, but the delay in arrival has added additional stress, since he doesn’t have the money to cover his down payment without it. One of the funniest moments in this movie revolves around the 250,000 Christmas lights that Clark placed all over the house. They require many attempts to work, and require an auxiliary nuclear generator. Overall, this is a hilarious movie about the trials and tribulations of the holiday season.
