    Anyone here seen Christmas Vacation?

    Remember the scene where Clark can't get the Christmas lights on his house to work so he completely flips out about it and punches the plastic Santa in the face? Am I the only one with that feeling right now?

    Actually when he cusses his boss out (even though he is not there) and then states where's the Tylenol" suits me more

    We watch it every Christmas Eve. It's a family tradition.

    Re: Anyone here seen Christmas Vacation?

    Funniest scenes are with cousin Eddy. I still can't get enough of him in his bathrobe emptying out the RV septic "sh**ter was full!" then waving at Clark then his neighbor that comes out right after that.

    When Eddie is bringing Clark's boss to the house, then he takes about 5 quick steps and kicks him in the @$$... classic.
