I was expecting some funny, witty jokes- just like the first movie.
H. Gray
My family has a tradition of watching "A Christmas Story" and "Christmas Vacation" every holiday season.

Horrible movie...Had to buy it because it has Randy in it...but all in all, just a really bad movie.

Take everything that was so great about the First Christmas Vacation film, toss it out the window, get a lousy cast and a worst script and you've got the makings of Christmas Vacation 2. Randy Quaid and Miriam Flynn reprise their roles as Cousin Eddie and Catherine Johnson in this horribly un-funny "holiday" film.

Though Eddie's fired right at Christmastime, his boss sends him and his family on a South Pacific vacation, hoping Eddie won't sue him after being bitten by a lab monkey. When the Tuttle family winds up trapped on a tropical island, however, Eddie manages to provide for everyone and prove himself a real man.

Incredibly the movie has a decent supporting cast including Ed Asner, Fred Williard, Eric Idle, Stephen Furst, and Beverly Garland. Never has so little been done with so much.

Why did they make a sequel to Christmas Vacation??? No Chevy Chase, no Beverly DeAngelo? This played more like a bad sitcom than a legitimate movie. Granted, it was a made for tv film, but come on! This was just pathetic.

There were zero laughs in this movie. Seriously....zero laughs. Maybe a snicker or two but that's it. That is quite an achievement! This is nothing more than a slapped together mess meant to cash in on the name of its predecessor. National Lampoon should be cursed to watch this one over and over again.

My reviews are based on how well a film entertains my chums and me. All other factors; special effects, visual appeal, editing, stunts, and all the rest merely support the entertainment value. What really matters, once all is said and done, is whether the viewer was entertained.

This film sucks like an Electrolux. The vacuum of space does not suck so compellingly as this movie! It is brutally bad!

This film does not entertain. Nor does it come even close. It is a terrible film. It is absolutely awful. Humor, when any glimmer manifests at all, is strained and overdone. The smell of overcooked ham fills the air as actors cope with a horrifically boring script, idiotic dialog, overblown gags, witless peformances and a screenplay evidently written by chimpanzees. Perhaps it would have sparkled had it been written by chimps, because it certainly doesn't as it presently stands.

I purchased the film on the strength of the first Christmas Vacation with Chevy Chase, which was hilarious. This film was not hilarious, not even funny, not even remotely so. It was lame. More than lame, it was lame to a quantum 10th magnitude.

This is a tragic performance for Randy Quaid, who has talent that is squandered on this tripe without mercy. I also expected much better from Ed Asner, who is simply wretched in this role.

In the past, I have written reviews critical of bad films. This one absolutely surpasses them all for the "worst film of all time" nominations! This movie is as useless as a glass-bottomed boat in a sewage pond. As an example, much of the lame humor revolves around a flatulent dog. Funny, perhaps to very small children or patients on Thorazine, but lacking appeal to anybody with an IQ above double digit!

I just finished watching this movie and i must say, this was the worst movie i have ever seen in my whole life. I only wish i could rate it 0 stars to give it the justice it deserves. i threw up a little bit during this movie due to the extreme horribleness this movie exudes.

HORRIBLE

This was, perhaps, the worst cinematic experience of my life. My family has a tradition of watching "A Christmas Story" and "Christmas Vacation" every holiday season. We looked forward to this new edition into the "Vacation" series of movies...but wow, did they ever screw things up. There was not one instance in this "film" that I smiled. Not once. Quite frankly, there were parts in this film which made me cringe! Especially the young boy...I've never seen a creepier character in all my life. Absolutely terrible (I can't say this enough...if only they had a -5 stars, I'd give it that). Not only did they manage to screw up the character of Cousin Eddie, they almost managed to ruin the Vacation films for me. Thank goodness I can forget that I ever saw this, and continue to enjoy the original Christmas Vacation. Don't bother buying this piece of trash...unless you're a glutton for punishment.

Cousin Eddie's Island Adventure is a poorly written, poorly acted, poorly directed and abysmally unfunny cash-in - - and I love it. You really have to see it to believe it. It's just so god awful that you'll howl with delight at the jokes that were clearly written by an 12 year old who has a crayon shoved up his nose, which has impaired his ability to execute even the simplest punchlines. There's hardly anything even Christmas themed in this movie, it's just so darn bad. And it's not even one of those "so bad that it's good" situation like The Room or Batman & Robin . It's so bad that it's uncomfortable. It's so uncomfortable that it's awkward. It's so awkward, it's hilarious. If you get a kick out of movies that are funny for the wrong reasons - this is the flick for you.
