"Worse?! How could things get any worse?" When it comes to the holidays with family, everyone is thinking that things are going off without a hitch. Unfortunately, this isn't the case for the Griswold family!
The film franchise came to life based off of the stories featured in the magazine, National Lampoon. Starting with a little-known made-for-TV film in 1978, the film series blossomed with their second 1978 film, National Lampoon's Animal House. After this success, the franchise moved on to the Griswold family, whose vacations never seem to go as planned.
With the release of the original company's final blockbuster hit in 1989, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation ended the series with a literal "bang"! The crazy antics of the family didn't go unnoticed! What was happening when Clark dressed up as the serial killer Jason? Can you pick out when Clark got stuck on the roof? What about when the hunt for a wild animal was on in the Griswold house? If you can remember these scenes, you're ready!
