It's Christmas time and the Griswolds are preparing for a celebration, but things never run smoothly for this family.

USA | 97 min | PG-13 | DCP | Dir. Jeremiah S. Chechik

It's Christmas time and the Griswolds are preparing for a family seasonal celebration, but things never run smoothly for Clark, his wife Ellen and their two kids. Clark's continual bad luck is worsened by his obnoxious family guests, but he manages to keep going knowing that his Christmas bonus is due soon. (IMDB)

"[F]or those who are tired of peace on earth and goodwill to men, the third outing of the Griswolds offers a reminder that, for some, the real meaning of the season has as much to do with annoying the neighbors and putting up with the relatives as it does with something more wholesome." - James Berardinelli (ReelViews)
