Christmas Vacation follows Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase), a well-meaning man who can never seem to catch a break. As the Griswold’s prepare for a family Christmas celebration, Clark’s continual bad luck is worsened by his obnoxious family guests, but he manages to keep going knowing that his Christmas bonus is due soon. The movie also stars Johnny Galecki (Rusty), Beverly D’Angelo (Ellen), Doris Roberts (Francis), Randy Quaid (Eddie), and Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Margo Chester).

Did You Know?

  • Only two Christmas-themed movies came out in 1989: Prancer and this film. Johnny Galecki (Rusty) was in both of them.
  • After failing to get the Christmas lights to work one last time, Clark Griswold takes his frustration out on the plastic decorations in the front yard. Chevy Chase actually broke his pinky finger while punching Santa Claus. He resorted to kicking and clubbing decorations after that. The film kept rolling and the take was used.
  • After Clark Griswold unsuccessfully attempts to demonstrate his handiwork with the house Christmas lights to his family, he asks his son, Rusty, to help him check all the light bulbs again. Rusty looks at his bare wrist, pretending to have a watch, and excuses himself. Looking at a bare wrist and pretending to have a watch is one of Chevy Chase’s trademark gags.
