Movie of the Week - Christmas Vacation

This week’s movie is Christmas Vacation (1989).

Christmas Vacation is the third of the four Griswold vacation movies, focusing on their Christmas at home with family. Unlike the other vacation films, this one takes place solely in the Griswold home, yet it is one of the better of the series. The script was written by famous 80s’ filmmaker, John Hughes, and features Chevy Chase at the top of his game, zany as ever teetering on the edge of insanity (classic). The film also features maybe the most famous actors to portray the Griswold children (at least famous now): Juliette Lewis and The Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki. The film works best around the holidays as it captures both the fun and craziness of being home with the family for the holidays. The film stars: Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Juliette Lewis, Johnny Galecki, and Randy Quaid.
