National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation – Review

This movie keeps being brought up whenever I see videos about Christmas movies so I figured I should give it a watch to see what all the fuss is about.

It was alright. It’s got some funny slapstick humour and a good cast but I don’t really feel like watching the other movies in the series or rewatching this next year.


As a Community fan it’s amusing getting to see a young Chevy Chase, especially when there are some scenes where he acts a bit like a younger Pierce. It was also pretty shocking to learn the actor who plays his son is Johnny Galecki from The Big Bang Theory who I didn’t recognize until I started looking up images for this review. This movie also has the voices of the Flying Dutchman from Spongebob and Betty Boop.


It’s an entertaining Christmas movie that can be a bit dated at times but still has its charm. Now for my next Christmas film I’m thinking of seeing something a bit newer…
