A Frame Apart Episode 70 - National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation VS The Family Stone | Modern Superior

It’s coming on Christmas, and it’s time to head home for the holidays! What a coincidence, that’s what we’re talking about this week! We’re taking a look at National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and the Griswolds versus The Family Stone and, well, the Stones, and all that makes being with your family during the holidays so wonderful (read: chaotic, stressful, and sometimes painful.) We discuss the first time we brought each other home for the holidays, bad experiences with exes during Christmas and Chanukah, trying to create that unobtainably perfect “old fashioned Christmas”, and so much more.

At the top of the episode we discuss Star Wars: The Last JediSO BE WARNED, THERE ARE SPOILERS! The Danger Zone is from 5:25 until 24:56, so anything in between those markers … well, you’ve been warned!
