About the Movie

The comic misadventures of the beleaguered Griswold family continue in this latest "Vacation" outing, the third and most successful of the series. (Over $71,000,000!) This time America's most dedicated dad (Chevy Chase) is determined to stay at home to create "the most fun-filled old fashioned family Christmas ever" -- but life has a particular way of throwing wet logs on Clark Griswold's fire. Look for Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus (TV's "Seinfeld") in a supporting role. Written by John Hughes ("Home Alone" series).

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The new film does little more than reintroduce these familiar characters (with new actors playing the children, who would otherwise be college age by now) and let them get on one another's nerves in earnest. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: Solid family fare with plenty of yocks. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: In National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Chevy Chase's family Christmas tree is a little full with a lot of sap, much like this movie. But it's a big-hearted fullness and it's a smoothly stirred sap. – Hollywood Reporter, Dec 2, 2014

Fresh: Christmas Vacation may not be a fancy package, but it is a diverting stocking stuffer. – Rita Kempley, Washington Post, Nov 27, 2007
