National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Factual error: In the scene where Clark is working on the lights the full moon is shown. This is December 14th according to the advent calendar. On December 24th when Santa's sleigh goes sailing over the moon, it is still full.

Factual error: When the Griswold family are going to buy a christmas tree, they are in the mountains. There are no mountains near Chicago, where the Griswolds live.

New today Suggested correction: It's unknown how long they've been driving on the road so they more then likely drove somewhere in or near Illinois to get their tree like the Cascade Mountain or the Chestnut Mountain. Both of which are a mere three hour drive.

Factual error: Prior to the cat being electrocuted, Clark is seen plugging the lights into a 110 volt outlet. However, when Rusty resets the breaker, it is a double pull breaker that is reset, which typically provides 220 volts, and the breaker is off instead of tripped.

Quotes

Clark: Where do you think you're going? Nobody's leaving. Nobody's walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse.

Trivia

Clark Griswold in the attic watching old movies dressed in a woman's turban and gloves to keep warm is not only funny but a reference to the Norma Desmond character from "Sunset Blvd.", who watches her old films to remember her Hollywood glory days.
