It’s hard to find a top 10 movies to watch during the holidays without a National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation sighting. Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Juliette Lewis, Johnny Galecki and the rest of the extended Griswold family such as cousin Eddie (Randy Quaid) proved that even staying at home can be a recipe for disaster. There’s even a new commercial running featuring Chase reprising his Clark role for a little house lighting ceremony in the cold.
The beauty of the Blu-ray version of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is it is presented in its original widescreen aspect ratio. The previous DVD was not making this version the one to own.
With the holiday season in full swing, online retailer Amazon.com has shaved a few bucks off the price of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation on Blu-ray, bringing it down under $10 at $9.99. It usually sells for a few dollars more.
That price move is enough to get National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation on Blu-ray into the bottom of Amazon’s top 10 bestselling Blu-ray titles. It could also have something to do with the best two words spoken in the film by Quaid, “shitter’s full!”
