National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

Comedy Rated: PG-13 97 min

Classic Holiday Films, $5 Tickets

It’s Christmastime and the Griswolds are preparing for a family holiday celebration with the usual unnaturally high expectations. Predictably, things never run smoothly for Clark, his wife Ellen, and their two kids, Rusty and Audrey. This classic comedy, written by John Huges, is jam-packed with comedy and acting legends, including Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Juliette Lewis, Diane Ladd, John Randolph (Serpico, Prizzi’s Honor) Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond), Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Randy Quaid, William Hickey (Prizzi’s Honor) and a young Johnny Galecki, before he landed on his extended runs on Roseanne, and later, The Big Bang Theory.

“Chase’s befuddled Dad remains a genuinely amusing creation, and the sight gags are impeccably timed.” — Steve Simels, Entertainment Weekly
