Clark has decided to host nearly his entire extended family at his house for the holiday season, including his parents (John Randolph and Diane Ladd), his in-laws (E. G. Marshall and Doris Roberts), his crotchety Uncle Lewis (William Hickey) and senile Aunt Bethany (Mae Questel), and his possibly-inbred cousin-in-law Eddie (Randy Quaid). Meanwhile, he's counting on a large Christmas bonus from his boss to help pay for his surprise present for the family: a backyard swimming pool. As can be expected, everything [[GoneHorriblyWrong goes horribly wrong]] in the most [[HilarityEnsues hilarious manner possible]].
