Reel Snippet – National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation was quite the riot and living proof that slapstick can be great comedy. It’s funny that a movie about such a complete asshole can be so charming, but Chevy Chase pulls it off with amazing comic timing and a great script. The humor is very audacious, but not in the intense gross-out way that a lot of comedic flops nowadays tend to go. The situation will also ring a cord to people who have huge family gatherings and have to watch as the different personalities, be they overbearing, abrasive, or downright senile, bound off of each other. It’s not exactly a traditional Christmas classic in the same way as It’s A Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol, but it’s definitely a Christmas classic I missed out on in my youth and one I’ll be happy to revisit in the Christmases yet to come.
