Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out and since it is considered as one of the best American comedies ever made, I had some rather high expectations. Well, to be honest, it turned out to be a decent watch but not much more than that, I'm afraid. Eventually, what bothered me the most was that even though it was fairly entertaining, it was ... read more

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 ... read more

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)

“Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out and since it is considered as one of the best American comedies ever made, I had some rather high expectations. Well, to be honest, it turned out to be a decent watch but not much more than that, I'm afraid. Eventually, what bothered me the most was that even though it was fairly entertaining, it was never really hilarious. On top of that, some of the jokes were just seriously misguided. I mean, I didn't mind so much about the dog who died because they forgot that he was tied to the rear bumper but the scene where they just dumped their dead aunt first on their roof of their car and then on the porch of some relatives was just seriously lugubrious and not funny whatsoever.

"2017/12/25 @home on DVD with Kendra and Katy Katy wanted these movies, so she received a three pack of Vacation, European Vacation, and Vegas Vacation. We agreed that this was funny, but not as funny as Christmas Vacation."

Movie Reviews (1401-1450) (50 movies items)

" Classic comedy about a family road trip retains some charm and good pointers on all those dreadful vacations I have had in a car driving over the country. The dialogue has still some fun surprises and the long-running gag about the woman in red still work and it has some dialogue that still work, but I hate Randy Quaid and the African American stereotypes in the film. Ending is also predictable, but as they say "it is the journey that is memorable not the destination". "
