Now on Netflix: ‘The Polar Express’ and ‘Christmas Vacation’

By Jove, it’s a Christmas miracle! OK, maybe “miracle” is a bit of a stretch here, but Netflix adding two bona fide holiday classics to their streaming roster is surely more of a miracle than whatever happened on 34th Street, right? The Polar Express and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation are now both watchable with the click of a button. Inspired by Chris Van Allsburg’s award-winning children’s book, The Polar Express is Robert Zemeckis’ and Tom Hanks’ 2004 CGI tale of how a¬†young boy’s faith in the holiday spirit is revived after he makes his way by train to the North Pole on Christmas Eve. Christmas Vacation (1989) brings¬†Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) and his dysfunctional family back, this time with a surprise holiday visit from chaotic Cousin Eddie (Randy Quaid). Two great films that offer something for the kids and something for dad.
