It’s “N”, National Lampoon is part of the title… I have no Idea why. It’s is called, National Lampoon Christmas Vacation. That’s today’s A to Z challenge letter… I feel silly doing it but, hey… them’s the rules I set forth when I started this thing.
Here is the scoop, I didn’t like the first two National Lampoons Vacation movies. I honestly can’t tell you what it is about this movie that make me like it either. I laugh though, every time I see it… and I’ve seen it every year and, around 300 times sitting in am ambulance break room with my friend Charlie. I sit, I watch, I laugh and it doesn’t matter that my Wife think’s I’m an idiot for watching it. She hates it having been sitting in the same room with Charlie and me for maybe 150 of those viewings. I like cousin Eddie, I think the Squirrel scene is great, and the Cat, and the lights. In fact I can recite the lines from beginning to end, I could play any role in this movie off book easily.
If you have a favorite “N” Movie toss it in the comments, or even a favorite Christmas Movie. Let me leave you with a line… a rather famous one… One big long movie quote before you go.
Favorite Quote – Clark – Hey! If any of you are looking for any last-minute gift ideas for me, I have one. I’d like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here tonight. I want him brought from his happy holiday slumber over there on Melody Lane with all the other rich people and I want him brought right here, with a big ribbon on his head, and I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit he is! Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where’s the Tylenol?
"Whatever you do, don´t stop writing, write only for yourself if that´s what you want". It might sound as nothing, but in a time in which I doubted so much about myself, it meant the world for me.
