    I see this at Amazon, with a street date of 12/9/03 and a $19.98 SRP...but I don't find it in Warner's password-protected advance information system!

    So I go searching for it at DVDPlanet, DVDEmpire, DDD, Best Buy, and Circuit City.

    I finally get a hit at CC.com, but here they instead call it "National Lampoon's Cousin Eddie's Christmas Vacation Lost Cousin Eddie's Christmas"


    No real description, though. I get that it seems to be a Quaid-starring sequel made direct-for-video (Dana Barron's in it, too...at least per CC), but it's strange that the studio named by both sellers doesn't have info on it yet!

    Anyone got any idea what the heck this is?

    It's scheduled to air on NBC sometime in December, probably around the release date of the DVD. They're going to do a whole "Christmas Vacation" night, airing the original on TV followed by this lame sequel.

    They're also making National Lampoon's Thanksgiving somethingrather, staring Judge Reinhold. It looks absolutely terrible.

    Wow, talk about killing a franchise! It looks as though they'll do about anything to cash in on the almighty buck. I'll probably catch it on TV........if for no other reason than sheer curiosity. lol.

    Quaid also briefly plugs this in the commentary for the new Christmas Vacation disc. Sounds pretty cheesy though.

    Good grief. I love Randy Quaid. Having said that, does he just get paid peanuts on every job he gets, thus neccessitating this sort of thing?

    If you guys think thats bad, wait till you hear this! According to an issue of entertainment weekly , that i read some weeks ago, there might be a Teen Wolf 3 !Lol ! Teen Wolf 2 is bad enough, but a 3rd has got to be a joke.Its bad enough that i own part 2 on dvd just to have the M .J classic. [​IMG]

    I don't remember reading anything about Teen Wolf 3. Don't you mean a TV show based on Teen Wolf, a la "Buffy"?

    Apparently, failed movie franchises make great TV shows. After "Mystery Men" flopped, UPN tried to turn that into a TV series as well. I think "Zero Effect" as well.

    I hope that Christmas Vacation DVD is released before Christmas. The film airs on NBC on December 15.

    Hey, this might not suck.

    But I wouldn't count on it.

    If it ain't got Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo it ain't a Vacation movie. Period. And made for TV? This will, indeed, suck. Bigtime. [​IMG]
