  • Fars Fede Juleferie

    1989 M11 30

    I år har Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) lovet familien, at de skal holde en hyggelig gammeldags jul sammen. Før vi overhovedet når til julesangene, pynter han op med grinagtige fjollerier i den uopslidelige favorit ”Fars Fede Juleferie”. Man tror, det er løgn. Der er 25.000 lamper på taget, kalkunen eksploderer på middagsbordet, og beredskabsstyrken har omringet huset. I de andre skøre roller ser vi Beverley D’Angelo, Randy Quaid, Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, Juliette Lewis, William Hickey og flere andre. Og John Hughes’ manuskript er fyldt med humor, varme og lutter tåbeligheder. Det er juleløjer for alle pengene!

Op til jul bliver han ved med at plage livet af sin mor, men hun har kun den kolde skulder tilovers for ham. BB-guns har det jo også med at skyde et øje ud hist og her. Men så gør moderen også det, man for alt i verden ikke skal gøre - at erklære krig mod en 9-årig, og Ralphie indleder en stor kamp for at få fingrene i julegaven over dem alle.
