HOLIDAY SPIRIT ON THE BIG SCREEN 2015
Double Feature!
NATIONAL LAMPOON’S CHRISTMAS VACATION / SCROOGED
NATIONAL LAMPOON’S CHRISTMAS VACATION
1989, Warner Bros., 97 min, USA, Dir: Jeremiah S. Chechik

Screenwriter John Hughes expertly juggles farce and sentiment in this delightful holiday film, perhaps the best in the entire VACATION series. Suburban dad Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) finds his plans for the perfect Christmas going awry thanks to a visit from obnoxious brother-in-law Eddie (a hilarious Randy Quaid), but the slapstick antics give way to a surprisingly touching finale that perfectly sums up Hughes’ feelings about home and family. With Beverly D’Angelo, Diane Ladd.


SCROOGED
1988, Paramount, 101 min, USA, Dir: Richard Donner

In this hilarious updated version of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” Bill Murray stars as Frank Cross, a selfish, cynical TV executive visited by three spirits on Christmas Eve. With Karen Allen and John Forsythe.
