The Griswold family's plans for a big family Christmas predictably turn into a big disaster.
The Griswold family's perfect Christmas plans go horribly awry due to unexpected visitors, explosions, and a pesky squirrel. Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo reprise their roles from the 1983 hit National Lampoon's Vacation.
The film is based on John Hughes' short story, Christmas 59. During filming, there was a minor earthquake.
