Everything Wrong with National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation in Sappy Minutes or Less
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is a modern classic. It's full of laughs and great gags, and everyone I know loves it. So we decided to list its sins, because it definitely has sins. And we hate good times and do our best to ruin them whenever we can.

Next week: More Modern Christmas Classic Sins & OLD SCHOOL Christmas sins.

Remember, no movie is without sin! Which movie's sins should we expose next?!

    Everything wrong with National Lampoon has a name, you know? It starts with “Chevy” and ends with “Chase.” That name should only exist on a map of Virginia/Maryland.

    0:09 - You think that typeface is Courier New? Courier New looks like typewriter letters. That's probably Georgia, maybe Times New Roman, though oddly they use a straight and not a smart apostrophe - *that's* where the sin is, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, *that's* where the sin is!

  • Ickess

    This movie is perfect. I think you’re just stretching on this one

    Oooh now do Vegas Vacation. Here's a couple of sins to start you off: -Whatever made Audrey think that Clark would have wanted the gum that she was chewing. -Not only does Clark survive slamming into the Hoover Dam wall, he somehow losing the cable he was holding on to and climbs up the wall in a way that would impress Spiderman. -The Maitre'D of Wayne Newton's show making no attempt to hold any of the change that Clark gave him. -Eddie taking forever to catch up to Clark when he spotted Ellen with Wayne from no more than 100 feet away. -After Audrey climbs up to the top of the sign and starts dancing, Vicki is down from hers in like 5 seconds. -The fake ID seller's camera having a special feature that could take Rusty's picture and somehow edit out the background lights of the Vegas strip. -Ellen giving Clark all the blame for the alone day idea when she also chose to abandon the kids and go to Wayne's house alone. -The pick a number dealer not having to write the number on a piece of paper or something, he could say any number he wants. -Despite Wayne creeping Ellen out with a lock of his hair, she still returns to his house for pasta night. -Rusty making friends with half of Vegas for his suite party after his second day as Papagiorgio. -Rusty having a "usual table" at the club Vicki and Audrey were working at after his second day as Papagiorgio.

    I love the ends of these, when a one-second audio clip can make you laugh out loud because you know where it’s from and you immediately get the context. 15:44 was one of those for me.

    This is one of my top 3 favorite movies of all time. But I dont worry about the things that aren't sins, or the sins that no one else is annoyed about or has a reason to be annoyed over.

    People seem to rave about the Vacation series, but I just watched the original, European, and this. Honestly, they all sucked and were all boring, incredibly dumb, and unfunny. They also had a tendency to take a "joke" and run with it for wayyyy too long. Also, this one was definitely rhe worst of the bunch. Sucks, cause the only reason I watched it in the first place is cause everyone seemed to agree it was the best one.

    • David M

      Well, I did like it, and thought it hilarious. But if you're looking for the worst of the series, apparently you haven't seen "Vegas Vacation".

    Huh, out of all the times I've watched this movie. This is the first time I noticed the tortoise mating poster. Also, I'm surprised that you didn't give the movie a sin when you found out that the hipster chick is named Margo.

    I’m sorry Señor Stupid, there’s nothing wrong with Christmas vacation. I feel like the only reason you picked on this movie was because there were no other good movies to ruin for your fans.

  • lilacbubble

    I can’t believe you sinned this movie.

  • quentin mementino

    Every single time I watch this goddamn movie I wonder how in the hell they managed to get under the truck. I know it’s a goofy comedy but once we watch it every year, it destroys me.

    14:13 They wouldn't need one. She just inadvertently gave them permission to enter. They knocked, she yelled in a confrontational way, antagonizing the cops when clearly they believed they had a reason to be there and then stated the conditions for their entry. It's a great lesson in do not tell people to enter your home if you don't know who TF is knocking

    this is my favorite movie lol

    The "sound and fury" speech in "Macbeth" is only 12 lines long, making it among the shortest of the famous soliloquies. Sure, it's most often not delivered with blazing speed. And the verb you mangled as "soliloquies" should be "soliloquizes" - which is totally wrong, because a soliloquy is only delivered by a solo actor (either to himself or the audience). Perhaps "speechifies" is what you were looking for? (Or, whatever Bond villains do instead of killing Bond?) (This happy New Year sin, sincerely, from a Shakespearean actor currently playing Richard III, whose opening soliloquy is nearly four times as long as Mackers's. [smiley emoji])

    To everyone criticizing Jeremy for "finding faults" with this and other movies, may I suggest that you not take these reviews so seriously or interpret them to mean he actually hates movies. These reviews are meant to be light hearted and comical and I find them hilarious. He intends them as comical entertainment and is not trying to rip them apart or find a million faults. I love the Christmas Vacation movie and always thought it was awesome, but I also enjoyed listening to Jeremy's funny commentary on it and many other movies as well. So lighten up, people. Rent a sense of humor, if you weren't born with one. And Jeremy, please keep these hilarious movie reviews coming.
