Clark's continual bad luck is worsened by his obnoxious family guests, but he manages to keep going knowing that his Christmas bonus is due soon.

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Warner Brothers' 1080p, 1.851 Blu-ray presentation of Christmas Vacation is the best I've ever seen this film look. However, the image retains what has always been a rather flat look. Surprisingly, this looks fairly good overall. It's nothing spectacular, but I was expecting much less, something around the range of a 1.5-2 star rating. For a 15+ year old comedy, it looks fine. Detail is pretty high. Flesh tones look solid enough, colors are moderately vibrant, and black levels appear fine, but not magnificent. The print is mostly in good shape. There are some pops and nicks here and there, especially in long distance shots, but on the whole this one looks good. Outdoor scenes fared especially well. I can't say this is worth an upgrade if you have the recent special edition DVD, however, as any improvement gained over an upscaled presentation is almost negligible.


National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Christmas Vacation is presented in a Dolby Digital 2-channel audio track only. What is there to say, really? It sounds fine, all things considered. There's not much in the source material to work with, and it's very front heavy with the vast majority of the sound emanating from the center channel speaker. Obviously, there is very little ambience or activity from anything in the rear, but there are a few effects and music bleeding into the left and right front channels. There is little to no bass to be heard. As a dialogue driven comedy, not much more is to be expected. Said dialogue comes across pleasantly enough; there's nothing that ever really distracts from or hinders it. I cannot say this is a disappointing soundtrack because I expected so little from it. As such, this Blu-ray disc sounds fine.
