The funniest National Lampoon movie of them all!!! You've got to see this at Christmas.
If you've got kids, wait until it airs on television- that way it will filter some of the language and sexual content.
this is a great christmas movie for the whole family. some kids wont get all the jokes, and there is nothing bad in it. the slapstick humor is funny. this is for middle schoolers and up. mabey a fifth grader if he acts mature. overall i give this movie for a great christmas movie a 10/10
Hilarious and very entertaining. One of Chevy Chase's best roles is Clark Griswold. There is some profanity, and a few provocative scenes, but it is truly a classic. If you're looking for a break from all of the cliché movies that all have a very similar storyline, this movie is for you!

Classic Funny Family Christmas/Holiday Month Movie
OK, this movie is from National Lampoon's whose slapstick humor is in the DNA of every movie. Most of their movies are NOT family friendly. So this one has plenty of comedy moments meant for adults, not kids. Yet as a whole it is hard to find another modern Christmas/Holiday month movie that is so entertaining from beginning to end for the whole family. It portrays the ways we often really feel about family - from Uncle Eddie & Aunt Bethany to the in-laws - yet in the end we still get together every year and do it all again! We use the adult moments to communicate with our 10yo son. We have not sheltered him much from PG/PG-13 movies swearing or sexual references (which we talk about what it means). We are fortunate he is quite mature, on the other hand he is still just a kid!
LOVE this movie. This is the first year my 7 year old has seen it and she laughed the whole time. Chevy Chase is SO funny for all ages. A few swear words but nothing too vulgar and not what they hear on the elementary school playground (seriously).
Do not try this at home! Lot of dirty comedy and slapstick comedy for the family that likes some old mindless Christmas movies. Tame compared to the many wild 2010s comedies where people are having a drunk party all the time with loud rave music.
Great movie! Incredibly funny! Has a lot of very edgy stuff though. I love all the parts where windows break and also when the cat gets electrocuted by the Christmas lights around the tree. I don’t know how many times I laughed during this movie. Amazing movie with nonstop comedy. Only appropriate for kids 13 and up.
My pastor showed several funny moments from the movie which were funny. I decided to see a trailer before watching it with the whole family. I quickly realized that it’s not a movie for my family. I agree , there are funny moments, but there are some very inappropriate scenes as well. I don’t understand how any parent can watch a movie like that with their children....
