"Before you ask the question, the answer is "yes". I

Any "National Lampoon" fans in the crowd? If you
enjoyed NL's "Vacation", "Christmas Vacation",
"European Vacation" and "Vegas Vacation", you will
love "National Lampoon's Holiday Reunion". If you are
a Baby Boomer (like me) you will warm up to this film
quicker than a frog on a lily pad. Then again, frog
butts are mighty cold.
The scripting, casting and editing is seamless...even
though I'm sure this was a cable TV product due to the
pauses (where commercials could be inserted).
My dear friend Darlene would love it. The lead
characters remind me so much of our long lost
friends...Mickey and Kitty. That's between Darlene
and I and I will not venture further.
Bottom line, this is a story of a big city family
transplanted into the backwoods for a "real" family
Thanksgiving. Coming out of the city shell and into
the country hell is handled so well I could not stop
laughing. What an enjoyable comedy. Mature audiences
(that means young adults, old adults and baby boomer
and bloomers) will cuddle up to a piece of life that
is often forgotten...overlooked...taken advantage of.
Here's a piece of the script. I just had to write it

"UGH, i am sick of this whole "national lampoon" movie thing. The only truly funny laugh out loud, and hillarious National Lampoon movies are the VACATION SERIES, other than that all of them are just bogus and are so stupid they actually put you to sleep. I personally am i HUGE movie buff, and appriciate all sorts of movies, and am open and welcome to new ideas, but this is just ridiculous, how many movies are they going to make? and when are they going to stop? I found this to be more of a horror movie than a comedy. It tries so hard to be funny, but it fails miserably, even my cousin (who laughs at EVERYTHING) had to turn this off within 30 minutes, and it took many days for me to finnish the movie myself, i cant say exactly how long, but i had to watch it in incriments of i think 15 minutes each day, and from the second i started it, i was praying for the 15 minutes to be up! dont watch!!"
