- BBFC Reason
infrequent strong language, moderate sex references
NATIONAL LAMPOON'S CHRISTMAS VACATION is a comedy sequel, from 1990, in which a family's seasonal gathering is imperilled by unexpected events.
- BBFC Ratings info
There is infrequent use of strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms such as 'Christ', 'God', 'shit', 'asshole', 'piss', 'hell', 'damn', 'crap', 'screw', 'bitch', 'Jesus', 'dick', 'cock' and 'frigging'. A man makes a middle-finger gesture.
A man refers to a preacher 'screwing the hockey player'. Another ogles a shop assistant's body and imagines her removing her swimsuit, with partial breast nudity. A man suggests time alone with his wife, and asks her to fetch the 'rubber sheets and the gerbils'. There is mild innuendo.
There is mild comic violence and threat. It is implied that a cat is accidentally killed by electrocution. Adults smoke tobacco.
- Sex & Nudity
- Sex & Nudity Reason
A man talks to a female store clerk who he finds sexy and messes up when talking and says hooter instead of hotter and nippily instead of nippy.

There is a picture on the bedroom ceiling of the Griswald's house of a woman with skimpy clothing.
A woman in a store shows Clark her very high underwear and it shows the side of her butt.
The Christmas tree is shown with a bra as an ornament. It's meant to be funny and is non sexual.
Ellen is shown grabbing Clark's crotch during the police officer scene where they tell the family to freeze. It is not in a sexual way.
Later in the movie she then appears when Clark is imagining his future pool during the summer. She takes off her swimsuit and it shows a brief partial shot of her right breast. Not very much is shown.
- Violence & Gore
- Violence & Gore Reason
The violence is mostly meant to be funny:
A man gets punched by his wife. He falls backwards off the couch and lands on his face.
A man tumbles all the way down his stairs while holding wine glasses. The glasses are shattered.
A block of ice from the rain gutter goes flying, crashes through the neighbor's window, and destroys their stereo. We literally see sparks fly when this happens, and a man falls off the roof and into a bush. He is not harmed.
A cat is electrocuted under a chair and disintegrates into the carpet of a house. The shape of its body is seen on the carpet.
A man is gagged and brought to a house against his will. He is also kicked in the butt at one point.
A man is knocked to the ground by a ladder when he opens the attic. Then he is whacked in the face three times in a row by a wooden board. He also crashes through the attic when he is sitting on top of the door, and his wife opens it.
A man drops a cigar and an outdoor explosion knocks a big group of people down in the snow.
The police break down the doors at two different houses and have guns in their hands.
A woman is attacked by a squirrel and a dog at the same time. In the next scene, she is shown with ripped clothes, she is limping, and her face and hair are all dirty.
After a squirrel and a dog maul a woman she goes next door to her boyfriend and punches him in the face.
A squirrel is found in a house, causing everyone to get upset. Two women faint, and Clark suggests trapping it in a coat and killing it with a hammer. A dog ends up chasing the squirrel throughout the house, knocking things over and causing a huge mess.
