Theater Thursday

Theater Thursday: Christmas Edition is here! With Christmas being next week (Yes...you read that correctly..it's next week), I had a very hard time deciding between my final 2 movies. However, I've gone with National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.
This is a classic, I think everyone in my entire family can quote this movie word for word. I know I can! It's just not the holidays if this movie hasn't been watched. 

If you've been living under a rock for the last 20 years (made in 1989) and have never seen this movie, then you must not walk, BUT run to the nearest store and BUY this movie. For those of you who haven't seen it....Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) sets out to have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas. He invites his entire family to spend Christmas at his families house. Ellen, his wife predicts that it will not end well. And indeed, it does not. Along the way, many many things happen to Clark and his family. Some of them being the funniest things I've ever seen. 
Incident after incident continues to happen. Clark nor his family can catch a break. Among his family is his cousin, Eddie. 
Eddie is the kind of cousin we all have in our family. The kind that's not the brightest, mooches off people but yet has a big heart. He makes for an entertaining time though!
So check it out! I'm sure most of you have!
