Okay, so this movie isn't perfect. But, like so many other movies, you can't help but like it. That may be because it is so darn hilarious. Once again, Chevy Chase plays Clark Griswold, the hopelessly inept head of one of the most dysfunctional families in film history. This time, he plans to have the all the relatives, including redneck Cousin Eddie, over for Christmas. Of course, nothing goes as planned. From a failed light display to a cat that gets fried into the carpet (Don't ask), this movie is one mishap after another. Add to this Clark's boss, who is a real-life Grinch, and you have a holiday that would give even the most sane man, which Clark definitely isn't, a headache. This film, however, is hampered by a couple of poorly written scenes. But, that can be forgiven because of a good story and a fine supporting cast including Randy Quaid, E.G. Marshall, and a pre-"Raymond" Doris Roberts. As the tagline on the DVD case says, "Yule Crack up."
