Top Ten Worst Christmas Movies: #2 Christmas Vacation 2


2. Christmas Vacation 2

What’s it about:

When Cousin Eddie joined Clark Griswold and his family for National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, the movie quickly becaume a holiday institution. An institution, of course, is where many think Cousin Eddie should reside. Randy Quaid again plays crude but lovable Eddie and Miriam Flynn returns as his wife in another comic skid on the Vacation banana peel. In a way, Christmas has always been a test of survival for Eddie and his brood. And that’s truer than ever when they receive an expenses-paid holiday tour of the South Pacific and end up shipwrecked on a remote island. Fred Willard, Ed Asner, Eric Idle in a zany cameo and more join in this season of comfort and joy. Which means little comfort for Eddie.

Why is “Christmas Vacation 2″ #2:

To state it simply, it’s just not a good movie.  Every fiber of my being tells me this is the worst Christmas movie ever made.  I don’t recall laughing at any one instance throughout the film.

For its predecessor to be so funny, this one ended up on the opposite side of the coin.

There are good bad movies and there are bad bad movies.  Quite simply, this just a bad bad movie that attempts to cash in on the popularity of Christmas Vacation.

Total Fail!
