National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989) – A Quick Capsule Review
Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is often considered to be a classic Christmas Movie. And whilst it’s not up there with the likes of Home Alone and Die Hard (Yes Die Hard IS a Christmas movie) it’s still pretty funny stuff, even if I am watching it for the first time some 30 years after it’s original release date. Chase was always good value in the 80’s and early 90’s and gives it all here whilst the support cast equally seem to be enjoying themselves. Yup time hasn’t always been kind but for the most part National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation deserves it rep as an essential Christmas text.
