The Ultimate Holiday Movie

Saturday, December 6th, 2014

If you want to get into the holiday spirit and have a good laugh at the same time, one movie stands out as the quintessential Holiday flick. That movie is Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. The 1987 John Hughes classic is funny and heart-warming. John Candy plays a well-meaning but obnoxious oaf, and Steve Martin plays an over-wound advertising executive. Both endure everything that can go wrong while traveling during the holidays.

The movie is available on Amazon.com if you don’t already own it. It’s also on Netflix, how convenient.

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (BD)

Newly Remastered on Blu-ray! This holiday season, Clark Griswold [CHEVY CHASE] vows his clan will enjoy "the most fun-filled family Christmas ever." Before you can sing "Fa-la-la-la-lah," he decks the halls with howls of folly in the perennial favorite National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Seeing is believing. There are 25,000 lights on the roof. An exploding turkey on the dining room table. A SWAT team taking siege outside. A festive supporting cast [including BEVERLY D'ANGELO, RANDY QUAID, JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS, JULIETTE LEWIS, WILLIAM HICKEY and more]. And a John Hughes script full of wit, heart and sheer goofiness. Yule love it!
