Thoughts before I watched this. 1. I decided to watch this since I'm going to go on my own vacation later this month. 2. Another reason is this is a classic I really should have watched by now. 3. It's back when Chevy Chase was awesome and funny. 4. Harold Ramis directed (early years style) and John Hughes wrote the script! 5. John Candy need I say more? 6.

Description: Chicago native Clark Griswold has decided to take his wife Ellen and kids: 14 year-old Rusty and 12 year-old Audrey to a Los Angeles theme park called Walley World. But will their vacation be all it was cracked up to be? Especially as Audrey takes up pot smoking, Rusty reads porno magazines and annoying Cousin Eddie sends spiteful Aunt Edna to join them on their trip. The Griswolds then get stuck in a ghetto, Aunt Edna dies, Clark drives off the road, hillbillies take all their money, and Clark is shot at in a Dodge City bar. ... (more)

"Re-watch - Dec. 29th It's safe to say I've seen parts of this film (mainly the ending) more times than I've actually sat through all of it. This was driven home as the film rolled along & hit moments I did not remember at all. Overall the film is solidly entertaining, with some very funny and strongly memorable scenes along the way. I no longer think it's quite great as the soundtrack is mostly annoying and some of the comedy falls flat for me, but it's definitely worthy of classic status and a"

100 Great 'Fun' 80s Movies (100 movies items)

"Harold Ramis followed up his debut 'Caddyshack' with a similarly risqué but hysterically funny comedy farce about the Griswold family's disastrous road trip to Walley World during which patriarch Chevy Chase goes from lovably enthusiastic dunderhead to all-out psychotic in his determination to give his family the perfect holiday. Scripted by John Hughes the year before he made his own directorial debut, 'Vacation' goes from hilarious scene to hilarious scene, occasionally overstepping the bound"

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Film Diary: November (50 movies items)

"November 21 Re-watch "Excuse me, could you please tell me how to get back on the express way?" "Fuck yo mama!" "Thank you very much." Since I had an urge to re-watch this movie while watching the new one, I decided to do that just to get the bad taste out of my mouth that the other one left me with. This movie is even better than I remembered as I forgot some of the stuff that happened in the movie and the jokes were a lot funnier the second time around. I also loved the overall realism "

Miika's Movie Diary - 2015 (436 movies items)

"10.11, PC Välillä köyhää ja aikansa elänyttä slapstickiä, välillä taas ihan hymyilyttäviä juttuja. On ilo huomata, miten joskus perhekomediat ovat olleet ihan siedettäviä. Vacation ei konseptina tarjoa mitään mitä ei olisi aikaisemmin nähty, ja vaikka vitsien laatu tosiaan on melko keskinkertaista, katsoo tätä vaivatta ihan jo sen takia ettei huumorin ilmapiiri ole tungetteleva vaan suht leppoisa."

“Thoughts before I watched this.

1. I decided to watch this since I'm going to go on my own vacation later this month.

2. Another reason is this is a classic I really should have watched by now.

3. It's back when Chevy Chase was awesome and funny.

4. Harold Ramis directed (early years style) and John Hughes wrote the script!

5. John Candy need I say more?

6. It's more than likely going to be loads better than the reboot/sequel hybrid.

7. Some of the young cast here is pretty well known today like Anthony Michael Hall and Jane Krakowski.

8. It's also back when National Lampoon was fun.

9. Let's get this show on the road!
