About this deal

WONKA — The Magical Adventure of a Young Chocolate Maker Comes Home on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD on February 27th! National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is a holiday staple and personal favorite that now shines on Ultra HD Blu-ray thanks to this newly remastered video presentation from Warner Bros. Considering the “National Lampoon” branding it may be far more schmaltzy than past films, but it hits the right balance of adult comedy and family-friendly hijinks. This particular review is covering the seminal 1989 holiday comedy masterwork, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. That rising tension spreads across Clark’s face the longer he sticks with it, the fake platitudes and sarcasm eventually not enough to shield himself from a changed reality.

Matt Paprocki has critiqued home media and video games for 20 years across outlets like Washington Post, Variety, Rolling Stone, Forbes, IGN, Playboy, Polygon, Ars, and others. The only lump of coal for this disc is the decided lack of any new bonus features with the same old commentary track recycled and wrapped up in old newspaper for this release. It is safe to say that this is the best that National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation has looked on home video.release, not to mention DVDs and TV broadcasts -- and consider this to be, in almost all respects, a fundamentally solid step forward. Everyone is having a ball and it is probably the peak Vacation movie out of all the Chevy Chase vehicles. Grain is still intact, occasionally rising to more obvious levels but, never to a distracting point. His hick cousin, Eddie (Randy Quaid), and his family show up unplanned and start living in their camper on the Griswold property.

Depth: Depth of field improves to give the image a little more breath with some solid pushback on display in many of the interior sequences. Another point of note is that this is an early appearance of Julia Louis-Dreyfus (aka Elaine on “Seinfeld”).

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is one of my all-time favorite holiday films, a true classic in fact. If you’ve ever had a giant Christmas gathering with huge amounts of family coming in from out of state, then there are probably good sections of the movie that will jive with each and every viewer. Its still got some of the slapstick from European Vacation, but it works well into this story’s tone and isn’t eye-rolling.

Blu-ray (reviewed in its Steelbook variant by Michael Reuben) which greatly improved on the image quality of the first Blu-ray. The previous Vacation movies were good with the message of the importance of family as Clark tries his all to be that family man, but there’s something for everybody with Christmas Vacation because you can relate to any of the situations Clark and the Griswold’s get into: an old aunt that’s going crazy, the cranky uncle who doesn’t give a crap, a crass cousin with no sense of manners and just the general family dynamic that will drive anyone bonkers during Christmas.HDR boosts the contrast and makes Clark’s epic Christmas lights display almost blinding – as it should be.

He doesn’t get it right a lot of the time, and he certainly messes things up more than your average bear, but he loves his family and puts his heart and soul into giving everyone a good time. However, throughout all this chaos, the Griswold’s still are able to find the magic of family, even if that magic is found after what seems like the most arduous several weeks of their life.
