Schöne Bescherung 2 - Eddie goes bathing (Original title: Christmas Vacation 2: Cousin Eddie's Island Adventure ) is an American comedy film from 2003. The director was Nick Marck , the leading roles played Randy Quaid and Miriam Flynn . The television film is the continuation of the Christmas film Schöne Bescherung from 1989.


After Eddie was bitten by a monkey in his job as a test person and fired, he was given a trip to the South Seas as compensation. Eddie and his family's journey ends abruptly on a lonely South Sea island. The family spends Christmas here with other stranded people. In the end, they return home.


The film received bad reviews almost all of the time:

"The robisonade full of slapstick and bawdy jokes tries desperately to be comical in the style of Vacation films."

"Randy Quaid [...] as an ultra-foolish Uncle Eddie is a pretty poor replacement for Chevy Chase in this chunky slapstick sequel. [...] Wooden hammer jokes and excretion jokes instead of puns and self-irony. "



The television film premiered in the US on December 20, 2003. In Europe, the film was released direct on DVD; in Germany it has been available since December 3, 2004.
