    The scene where Cousin Eddie shows up in the line that is congratulating Clark on the lights on his house is HI-LAR-I-OUS!

    Love it! The Sony Cybershot is a GREAT camera!!! I bought one YEARS ago as my first digital and it still takes great pics. I’ve long since upgraded to a Digital SLR, but the kids still use that Cybershot!
