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.

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.

I'm sorry, but not one of the National Lampoon films are even remotely funny. Fact.

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.

I agree that Christmas Vacation is an excellent film but nothing can replace A Christmas Story on my top Christmas film list. But, I will say, it's a very close decision. I think it's a generation thing - for the longest time I bet It's a Wonderful Life was just about everyone's favorite movie.

I'm also partial the the original Grinch and Rudolph animated films - even A Charlie Brown Christmas is great for nostalgia.

I defy the  ;general consensus&n bsp;that A Christmas Story is the best Christmas movie. Christmas Vacation is hands down my favorite Christmas movie to watch.
