Chevy Chase, star of National Lampoon's Vacation and its sequel, is back as the paterfamilias of the Griswold family (including Beverly D'Angelo as his missus) to skewer the Yuletide season. Chevy mugs, trips, falls, mashes his fingers and stubs his toes as he prepares to invite numerous dysfunctional relatives to his household to celebrate Christmas. Amidst the more outrageous sight gags (including the electrocution of a cat as the Christmas tree is lit) the film betrays a sentimental streak, with old wounds healing and long-estranged relatives reuniting in the Griswold living room. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation was still capable of attracting an audience five years after its release -- it was one of the top-rated seasonal TV specials of 1994, outrating even the first network telecast of It's a Wonderful Life.~Hal Erickson

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation [WS] [Special Edition] [DVD] 
Movie is a classic!! Steelbook is nice. However it arrived and the disc had fallen out of its holder and one of the insert holder tabs were broken so the disc was flopping around inside the steelbook. I don’t know if this steelbook was supposed to have any pamphlets or inserts inside because this only came with tye disc.
What can you say, the Griswolds and Uncle Eddy getting together for Christmas. Chevy is still at his best when this was made and it's great fun for the whole family. Funny that his kids are played by Juliette Lewis and Johnny Galecki.
Wow, what can I say...This and Elf are my favorite Adult Christmas Classics. You can watch this on TV, but I prefer to watch it on my schedule without commercial interruptions.
The Griswold family's plans for a big family Christmas predictably turn into a big disaster.
I don't know what else I can say about Christmas Vacation. If you're looking at buying this movie, then chances are, you consider it a funny Christmas classic, just like our family. We don't buy a lot of DVD's or Blu-rays anymore, but this is one movie we wanted to have so we could watch it every year. Although we stream most of our television content these days, this movie isn't always on Hulu, Netflix, or the other services we have when Christmastime comes. Other than it being a classic, the steel case is nice, but we only bought that because it was the only option available at the time. I wouldn't go out of my way to get the collectible case - we just wanted the movie.
The first thing I thought of when I open this was that commercial they used to run where they run off the prices of things and at the end they say priceless and that's how I feel about this steelbook. National Lampoon's vacation movies and the Christmas vacation movie I can watch this year round I think me and my daughter can recite it but when I looked at the steelbook and the pictures -priceless. Now I need to watch it and see what the pictures like I couldn't wait to say how much I love the the case in the pictures let you know how the picture is my old regular DVD the soundtrack was off really bad so I have a feeling this one's going to be amazing.
I saw that this movie was on sale after Thanksgiving and I wanted to add it to my Christmas movie collection. The movie looks good on blu-ray and I like how the movie takes up the entire screen instead of cutting off the top and bottom. So many great lines are said in this movie and if you are looking at buying it, you must enjoy it as much as I do.
