Movie Summary

Director:
Jeremiah Chechik
Released:
1989
Rating:
PG-13

Clark Griswold, the patriarch of this disaster-prone clan, is trying his best to have the best Yuletide holiday ever with the best Christmas tree, a beautifully lit house, happy reunions with his family, and a surprise in the form of a new in-ground pool, funded by his yearly bonus. He finds the tree after hours of searching, but forgets the saw. He and his son Rusty string up around 25,000 Christmas lights, nearly killing himself in the process, to find that a fuse is short somewhere. His wife Ellen's redneck cousins, Eddie and Catherine, land in their driveway in a beat up sewage seeping RV with their two young children, Ruby and Rocky, and a snot-covered Rottweiler. No holiday is a bore once the SWAT team sieges the house and the tree catches on fire.
