About this movie

The all-American Griswold family just wants to go on an all-American vacation. Everyone is packed. The route is planned ... And absolutely everything goes wrong as a simple trip quickly becomes a madcap cross-country odyssey and heroic quest in search of National Lampoon's Vacation. For the Clark W. Griswolds of Chicago, 50 weeks of work and routine will soon be rewarded with a fortnight of frenzied freedom. Mom and the kids would rather fly, but Dad (Chevy Chase) insists on driving west to Walley World. He's programmed everything on the family's PC--from tire wear to best routes, from choice sights to the finest AAA-recommended lodgings. With such planning everything should go right ... Wrong!!

As a kid I didn't like this one but I loved European and Christmas. Now as an adult I don't really like European but I still love Christmas Vacation and especially love this first Vacation movie. It is absolutely hilarious. So many iconic classic lines. Plus Beverly's topless scenes are well a personal favorite of mine. Buy it! Rent it! Watch it! Repeat!

Murphy's law for family road trips!!! Stellar performances that you would never think might be real. Many surprises throughout. There is a reason this became a series. Many episodes follow.
