National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation isn't the finest Xmas movie you'll ever see, but it's disarmingly heartfelt at times, and the over-the-top extravaganzas (like the house lights you could probably see from space) epitomize Christmas.

In National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Chevy Chase's family Christmas tree is a little full with a lot of sap, much like this movie. But it's a big-hearted fullness and it's a smoothly stirred sap.

[A] fairly perfect blend... of cartoon violence and mayhem and the pleasant lightness of a Christmas movie.

John Hughes wrote the screenplay for this silly, warm little guilty pleasure that nails most of the trials and tribulations of spending the holidays with family.

With enough sight gags to please slapstick fans and enough good-natured Christmas cheer to qualify as a good holiday film, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation should keep most viewers occupied and provide 97 minutes of goofy entertainment.

Solid family fare with plenty of yocks.

Easily the funniest of the four Vacation movies. Just try keeping a straight face when the uncouth Cousin Eddie (Randy Quaid) is on screen.

The best of the four "Vacation" movies.

The ultimate family holiday film, playing on both the heart strings and the horror to capture a genuine Christmas spirit.

Haven't watched it in awhile, but I remember it well and I remember enjoying it. One of the better Vacation movies (Vegas Vacation is still the best, though).

Amusing Chase vehicle on its way to being a Xmas perennial.
