Why the hell did I do this to myself?
In this edition of "F*ck This Movie", we're looking at National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation 2: Cousin Eddie's Island Adventure. As if the title wasn't a dead giveaway, this movie is an absolute disaster. I put off watching this as long as I could until I finally had to, in order to complete the retrospective and move on. I didn't go into this expecting anything great. I was expecting it to be pretty lame or bad. My oh my were my expectations set insanely high. I never imagined I would be sitting down to watch one of the worst movies I've ever seen. There is nothing worse for me than watching a comedy that never works. Bad production aside, when you're not laughing at the jokes, its just a bad time all around. Give me a crummy horror film or ridiculously bad action movie and I can at least get some giggles or find an appreciation.
Next Time: Rankings! Spoiler: This piece of shit is finishing dead last and beyond!
There was no song of note from this movie...but i think this is a fitting companion for the garbage I just sat through
