At the end of the movie there are 2 security guards. One stays behind at the front entrance and the other is taken with the family on all the rides. There is no one left to operate the rides, yet the rides seem to start all on their own. 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.
