To be honest, since I had been hardly impressed by 'Vacation', I wasn't really expecting much from this sequel but since it was directed by Amy Heckerling, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, it turned out to be seriously weak, I'm afraid.

The Griswalds win a vacation to Europe on a game show, and thus pack their bags for the continent. They do their best to catch the flavor of Europe, but they just don't know how to be be good tourists. Besides, they have trouble taking holidays in countries where they CAN speak the language...

A Complete Review of Amy Heckerling's work (9 movies items)

" Cast : Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo, Eric Idle What was it about? The Griswolds win a vacation tour across Europe where the usual havoc ensues. My two cents: To be honest, since I had been hardly impressed by 'Vacation', I wasn't really expecting much from this sequel. Well, it turned out to be seriously weak, I'm afraid. Indeed, even though it made sense that the Griswolds would go to Europe with this sequel, the whole thing turned out to be the usual awful comedy about US tourists visit"

Indeed, even though it made sense that the Griswolds would go to Europe with this sequel, the whole thing turned out to be the usual awful comedy about US tourists visiting various European countries. Seriously, while watching this movie, you might wonder who is actually more stupid: the people loving this garbage or the people who made this garbage. I mean, the first scene involved a TV-show host kissing and touching a teenage girl which was just so cringe-inducing. The rest was not much better, I'm afraid, as it was just a succession of awful” read more

"This has got to be one of the weirdest ones ever. In one scene, Clark Griswald supposedly says "Darn it all!", yet the words and his lips don't match. The weird part is that it is the original pre-TV version. "
