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
When Clark brings home the new car and drives up to their house in the "family truckster" the house next door features a tower with a large "beam" (also known as a "Yagi") antenna. This type of antenna is widely used by amateur (ham) radio operators to communicate worldwide via shortwave. See more »
In the open matte version of the film, in the scene in which Ellen is in the shower, she can be seen wearing slightly pulled down underwear or possibly bikini bottoms. See more »
No, we don't. You gave $500 to Eddie, and everything on this safari has cost twice as much as you figured out.
Honey, there's nothing in that luggage that can't be replaced. Except for your... diaphragm. We can always cash a check down the road. Don't you trust me?
As long as you don't tie me to the rear bumper.
That hurt, Ellen.

"National Lampoon's Vacation" is a funny movie that follows the Griswold family, Clark (Chevy Chase) and his wife Ellen (Beverly D'Angelo) along with their children Rusty (Anthony Michael Hall) and Audrey (Dana Barron), as they cross country on their station wagon westward from their home in Chicago to Walley World, the Disneyland-like amusement park in California. It took them two weeks to get their and have fun. The film co-stars John Candy (too bad he died), Randy Quaid, Imogene Coca, Eddie Bracken, Eugene Levy, Christie Brinkley (who plays the girl in the Ferrari here), and the other cast and crew. If you have not seen "National Lampoon's Vacation", I suggest you go rent it at your local video store near you and laugh or see it on television and laugh also. If you'll liked it, buy the video or DVD or tape it from any channels on television on blank tape. I think you will not be disappointed. Hilarious!
I give it a perfect 10/10 stars!
