To help pass time while posing in a holiday nativity scene, Cleveland tells his family his own version of one of his favorite holiday stories, "Die Hard." In Cleveland's version, when Waterman Cable Company is taken hostage on Christmas Eve by a group of terrorists, including Tim the Bear, Lester, Federline and Kendra, a barefoot Cleveland - wearing a tank-top much like the one Bruce Willis wore in the movie - must endure window-shattering shoot-outs and fist fights with his friends to save his wig-wearing wife, Donna, in a parody of the greatest Christmas blockbuster movie ever.

A well done parody
13 December 2011 | by Mzfan28See all my reviews

I was laughing through almost the entire episode. They succeeded in making a very funny parody. Die Hard was a great movie and one that people haven't thought about in a while. Bringing it back into the public eye you will find yourself cracking up at the memories of the movie that came out over 20 years ago. I think one of the biggest problems people were having with the show is that it tends to have younger viewers that have never seen the first die hard and thus don't understand the jokes even so the episode was funny and if you didn't know exactly what they were talking about from the movie it will still make you laugh. I recommend it fully and can not wait for the 2nd one.
