"9.5. Silly. Some jokes are fire like John Astin as a pedo gameshow host. Mostly a lot of missfires. Biggest missfire is the lack of plot. "

Film Journal - February 2014 (112 movies items)

" While not as great, as the first film, it still has it's moments, particularly Eric Idle's extended cameo, as the very unfortunate bicyclist who unfortunately, meets the Griswalds quite frequently. "

"31.08.2013 "Clark, there's no bathroom." "Of course there's a bathroom. Europeans go to the bathroom, don't they?" This is definitely the worst of the vacation movies. Well, of the official movies at least. Christmas Vacation 2 is still miles below this in the shit pile. This film could have been very funny, but the jokes are so tired and old, and there is barely a plot to keep them together. The Brits drive on the wrong side and speak funny, the French are snobs, the Germans drink a lot, etc."

"The lowest point on Chevy Chase's career. - Gerry Shamray, Sun Newspapers of Cleveland ...the film is about as brainless as the Griswalds themselves. - John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis"

Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"The "Pig In A Poke" game show host Kent Winkdale (played by John Astin) is a parody of two real-life game show hosts. The name "Kent Winkdale" is a parody of Wink Martindale, a notable game show host in the 70s and 80s (most notably as the host of The New Tic Tac Dough), and when he kisses Ellen and Audrey, it is a parody of Richard Dawson who often kissed the female contestants on Family Feud. The video camera (a JVC SF-P3) that Clark uses to film Ellen in the shower (which gets stolen in Fra"

Worst of the Worst by The Doctor (93 movies items)

"This could be so good. The first and the third are great! The fourth is enjoyable. But the second was just done in a wrong way. Beginning with the cast of the Griswald kids, not charismatic at all. All Audrey do is scream throughout the entire film! And not in a funny way, so annoying!"
