National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
I think I'd say this is my favorite of the National Lampoon Vacation movies, and this is definitely one of my favorite Christmas movies. Once again Chevy Chase's character, Clark Griswald, is well meaning, but goes overboard as he hosts a fun old-fashioned family Christmas. From all the lights on the house that cause the electric meter to spin around rapidly, to uncouth Cousin Eddie and his family unexpectedly showing up, to the squirrel who gets in the house and freaks everyone out, to Cousin Eddie kidnapping Clark's boss and delivering him to Clark with a big bow, this movie has so many funny moments. I laugh every time I see it!
