Chevy Chase leads this National Lampoon's holiday favourite as family man Clark Griswold, whose attempts to put on a proper Christmas for his kin go terribly and hilariously awry. From electric shocks to exploding turkeys to being under siege by a SWAT Team, it’s an unforgettable holiday get together that will make you better appreciate your dysfunctional family’s Christmas dinner snafus. With a stellar supporting cast featuring Beverly D’Angelo, Randy Quaid, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Juliette Lewis and a non-stop onslaught of laugh-out-loud gags from writer John Hughes, Christmas Vacation is a bonafide comedy classic.
