National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Plot hole: When Clark goes around the side of the house to see why the lights don't work, one of the mothers goes in the garage and flips on the switch making the lights go on. Considering Clark covered the whole house with lights, he would've SEEN them come on.

Suggested correction: The running gag in the Vacation movies is how oblivious Clark is. This is simply a joke pointing that out. He even thinks he figured out what was wrong without noticing the lights came on.

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.

Mistakes

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.

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.
