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.

" The Ups: This classic comedy retains some charm and good pointers on those dreadful vacations in a car over the country.
