This is a comedy classic that is anchored by the endearing performance of Chevy Chase as the bumbling Clark Griswold. Anyone who remembers a family road trip vacation will appreciate all the crazy events that befall the Griswold family in a film that is hilarious from start to finish.

A classic comedy that I think every family in America has sat down and watched together at least 2349872563487563487 billion times. This film can always make me laugh even when I know what's coming. Checy Chase is hilarious, but he was at his best in this film.

National Lampoon's Vacation review

Clark Griswold (Chase) with wife Ellen (D'Angelo) and children Rusty and Audrey (Hall and Barron) plans on going to "Walley World." Several unfortunate events befall the family along the way. The humor was spot on and Chevy Chase was earnest and fantastic in his role. The soubdtrack and some scenes felt dated. This consisted of a good cast with a young Hall, Levy, and more. Screenplay was interesting with lines: Ellen Griswold - "No. But with every new day there's fresh hope." Clark - "We watch his program... We buy his toys, we go to his movies... he owes us. Doesn't he owe us, huh?" "Honey, I'm not an ordained minister; I'm doing my best." National Lampoon's Vacation is a laughable picture about persistence, loyalty and love of family despite through hardships.

Rating of
3.5/4

The dog Pee'd on the sandwhiches.. LMAO!!

A classic that never seems to get tiresome. The Griswald family, Clark(Chevy Chase), Ellen(Beverly D'Angelo), Rusty(Anthony Michael Hall) and Audrey(Dana Barron), are on the 'Holiday Road' cross-country from Chicago to "Wally World". Histerically funny sequences make the vacation one to remember. My favorites are: the sandwiches being drenched in dog "pee"; Clark falling asleep at the wheel; the vibrating bed; and Aunt Edna(Imogene Cocoa)strapped to the top of the station wagon. Then there is the stop to visit dead beat Cousin Eddie(Randy Quaid). Harlod Ramis directs and co-writes. Other faces you'll remember in the cast: Eugene Levy, John Candy, Brian Doyle-Murray, Jane Krakowski, James Keach and Christie Brinkley. Chase is in top form and just maybe his most memorable role.

3.5/4
