Spend Your Bonus Check on a 'Christmas Vacation'

You can't have Christmas Month without the Griswold family. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation has become a seasonal classic since its release in 1989, summarizing all the wonderful, frustrating things about the holiday. Our special guest and Christmas fiend Sam Johnson loves it; how about Steve and Andrew?

Despite miles between them and technical complications aplenty, the In Reel Deep Podcast presses on to finish Christmas Month in style. Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo, Randy Quaid, John Landis: we're talking all things Vacation franchise, and how this beloved entry fits into the Christmas movie pantheon. Bust out the booze, cash your bonus check, and plug in that mountain of twinkling lights; just be careful not to zap the cat.
