By far my favorite "funny" Christmas movie! Big Grin

I don't even recall this being a big movie when it came out in 1989, I was 17 years old and a regular movie goer at the time. I think it's one of those movies that was a dud when it came out but over time became a beloved, cult classic:




What's your favorite line from the movie?

Merry 30th Anniversary to ‘National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation’

An annual classic. One of the few movies with foul language that my Mom also enjoys watching. So many great scenes.

It is a fun and funny movie.

If you've only seen it on broadcast tv... you haven't really seen it.

You know that metal plate in my head? I had to have it replaced because every time Catherine revved up the microwave I’d piss my pants and forget who I was for a half hour or so.

My wife and I went to see it when it first came out, at a $.99 showing in a small theater, not knowing a thing about it.

We nearly busted a gut laughing, and since then, it's been one of my all-time favorite movies. Not just Christmas movies, but all-time favorite!




You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.

It's a Thanksgiving tradition for us. My BIL and I have memorized pretty much the whole thing.

"Where do you think you're going? Nobody's leaving. Nobody's walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse!"
