Summary: Ok, I get it, I'm only 23 years too late to have finally seen this Christmas classic. But, that's just the way it is. I don't really have much to say about it, it's hilarious. The Griswold clan can't seem to get anything right. Just like in the previous films. It's sad to see Chevy now, people forget just how great he was in his prime.
Summary: I found this movie to be annoying. I truly could not stand it. I am not a big Chevy Chase fan as it is, so that played into my opinion a little bit. I honestly could not find much laughs out of the movie. It is one of those movies that had me fumbling around on my laptop to keep me entertained while it played in the background. I would say skip this one, but the general public, and the fact that this movies reputation still has clout, would say otherwise.
Summary: This is my favorite National Lampoon film, a movie that takes a demented spin on the family holiday traditions most everyone is familiar with. Chevy Chase is magnetic as the gradually more and more unhinged Clark and the film has one of the best lines of the entire franchise.
Excerpt: video transfer was really bad. i felt like i was watching a dvd. some shots looked ok i guess. audio isnt even HD! tin is too big for shelf... tiny moose mug was cute i guess. commentary was awesome though. very dissapointed with disc.
Excerpt: This is a movie I watch more or less every Christmas and was a definite buy to replace the old DVD (just as the DVD replaced the VHS before that). It is an older movie and it shows in the transfer though it is still an upgrade over DVD. If you are not a die hard fan of the movie, you should go with the regular package instead of this over-priced one though.
