Christmas Gift Ideas: National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - 20th Anniversary Edition

About the DVD By John C.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is a comedic, holiday classic. Written by the late, great John Hughes, the script is filled with hilarity and heart. Part of what makes it so funny is the comedic timing of Chevy Chase, perfectly executing every pratfall, stunt and physical gag that the movie has to offer. The various family members that pretty much invite themselves over are also very funny, including his wife’s rude and dimwitted, but very kind cousin Eddie, who is hilariously played by Randy Quaid.

The DVD includes all-new bonus features . It comes packed in a very nice tin, with an official Griswold Santa hat, four drink coasters, an “I survived a Griswold family Christmas” button, and a box of fake snow powder. This would make a great pre-Christmas present, so you can share the laughs before the big day actually arrives.

About the DVD By Erin V.

A Christmas classic that has stood the test of time as this 20th anniversary edition is released. Every year, it pops up on various TV stations, although not in the full uninterrupted version that is a DVD. The funny, but also kind of sweet, tale of Christmas at the Griswolds', is one that you will want to own for yourself.

Especially now, as this edition comes with one of the nicest Christmas Santa hats vacuum sealed with a DVD that I have ever seen - the hat also has the Griswold Christmas reindeer on it. Along with the one disc - (has lots of new bonus features), you also get four coasters as well as a reindeer pin. Fake snow powder comes with this edition too, although unless you get the BluRay, unfortunately you won't get a little reindeer glass.

The whole thing comes in a Christmas tin, which is white for the DVD, and red for the BluRay.
