Joe Don Baker,
The Griswold family are on a quest. A quest to a Walley World theme park for a family vacation, but things aren't going to go exactly as planned, especially when Clark Griswold is losing all thought towards a mysterious blonde in a red Ferrari. Written by
For the scene where Clark ties Dinky's leash to the rear bumper and forgets all about it before driving off, producer Matty Simmons said that after the movie's release, he received numerous letters from people who had seen the movie and admitted that they had made the same grievous error with their pets as Clark did in the movie.

Clark, what are you doing?
We watch his program... We buy his toys, we go to his movies... he owes us. Doesn't he owe us, huh? He owes the Griswolds, right? Fucking-A right he owes us!

During the credits, you see snapshots of group photos of where and who the Griswalds met on the vacation. The last photo shows you how they got home, on a plane. See more »
OK so I guess you can't really call it a family movie because it's rated R. But that family movie presence is still there.
Anyway, what can I say about National Lampoons Vacation. It's probably one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. If you don't even laugh at ONE of the jokes, you're not human. I'll admit, there is some crude humor but most of it should, at the very least, make you chuckle. Chevy Chase is outstanding and is probably the funniest character in the movie.
It may be a bit old but it's a classic and I enjoy watching it.
