Brian Doyle Murray was in the 1st vacation film as the clerk for that camping resort.

Glad to see somebody else knows that.

That’s weird that he went from being a clerk to Clark’s boss. They also don’t even seem to recognize each other, but it was probably a while.

I guess that’s a “Things you never noticed about a Nostalgia Critic countdown video”.

It’s always nice to see The Nostalgia Critic talk about a Christmas subject that’s GOOD after experiencing that cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit from last week.

I’ve actually seen my local grocery store selling boxes of those Wally World glasses.

Love the entire list except for the tree drying up because of the dog drinking the water. I’m pretty sure it’s a clear plot point, not something so easily missed.

Not to me. I never noticed that. And I watch this film every year.
Also, never understood the deal with the stair knob, but now I get it 😀

So if you haven’t planned out January yet, do James Bond month. There a huge amount of crap there barely anyone on the internet has really mocked, outside of the one average one. I mean, nobody has mocked the one with a conspiracy of every black person in the United States trying to get the white man hooked on heroin.

The Mysterious M

January is when he does his theme months? I have an idea of what he should do:

He’s an internationally known actor, who is actually really talented. However, when America (more specifically Hollywood) gets his hands on him, they only use him as a glorified stunt man. The films are awful, and even the action they use him for gets tiresome. How did such an amazing respected actor get reduced to this?

It’s time for… *explosion* Jackie Chan month

#20: Cousin Eddie later found work as Ted Cruz.

Here’s a few things I noticed. 1) When the cops swarm the house (also running around on the roof), they didn’t break one Christmas light on the house. You can tell because all the lights are still lit at the end of the movie. 2) When Clark finally gets the house to light up. He goes to hug his mother and is crushing Helen between him and his mom. 3) After Clark snaps and is in the yard with a chainsaw, Helen tries to reason with him, drinks her cup of eggnog and throws the cup in the lawn. 4)… Read more »

19 – Didn’t notice that at first. 18 – Yeah, don’t know many of their names. 17 – Not a fashion guy. 16 – Have seen that whole movie, though. 15 – Eh, I’ve seen bad houses that looked worse. 14 – Or they didn’t have enough set pieces. 13 – Saw it first time! 12 – Don’t be nitpicky! 11 – Seems the quality in this clip went wrong. 10 – Or his penis. 9 – And they pronounce it like Bush does. 8 – Forgot about that from “It’s A Wonderful Life”. 7 – If only he could… Read more »

I’ve never seen this movie but that’s pretty much the status quo when it comes to What You Never Knew.

I never knew all of that! LOL Great work Doug, and Merry Christmas!

There is a dumb Christmas movie that has 0% on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s called The Nutcracker: The Untold Story.

I watch this movie every December 23rd, a proper family tradition! Btw I knew 4 of the things. Broken lightbulbs, same-shaped gifts, wrong name and the “freeze!” scene.

You’re not fooling me, Doug, I know that the close-up for ‘What You Never Knew About’ is of Rob’s face! =P

Somehow, I knew you would cover this. A few things…

18. On top of being the Evil Scientist in Nightmare Before Christmas, Uncle Lewis was also Grandfather Wrigley in The Adventures of Pete & Pete.
17. Yep. It’s called a “dickey”.

Cobra-Khan
Guest

He was also the last casualty in one of the stories from Tales from the Darkside: the movie. This story was about his sister adopting a cat and him trying to get rid of it…but the cat came back the very next day (see what I did there?) and ended up killing someone, then he’d get rid of it again over and over until he hired a hitman who was also killed before killing the old man.

17. So called because only dicks wear it unironically.

Merry Christmas Doug, Rob and everyone at Channel Awesome.

Hey Doug don’t know if you noticed but you skipped #5 and put two number 6s ( i know the only way to change is to re upload it but i was letting you know)

Chevy Chase, Julia Louis Dreyfus, Randy Quaid, and Brian Doyle Murrary were all on Saturday Night Live.

It’s probably noticeable but when everyone is flung back by the explosion at the end you can see well up Beverly D’Angelo’s skirt.

I don’t think Helen’s ball grab would’ve been as noticeable without her reaching to shake the boss’s wife’s hand. Or as funny as she puts it right back when she’s done.

Cobra-Khan

I know what you mean, at first I thought she just had her hand over Charles belly.

One thing I didn’t notice until I was older (yeah, I saw this at a very young age) was what Clark’s boss’s wife meant by bulging man. Eddie’s junk is prominent through the entire movie, but especially the lightbulb crushing scene in the store.

But my family noticed all of this except the resumes of the actors and the last one. These are actually some of our favorite moments. We have seen this way too much.

Also the half turtleneck is a dickie.
