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
In the scene where the Griswolds are in the parking lot staring at Wally World they are actually looking at the Santa Anita Racetrack. Harold Ramis said they cut the racetrack out of the frame, and replaced it with a hand painted picture of Wally World. See more »
When the Grizwolds are "lost" in St. Louis, the wide overhead shot clearly shows the Family Truckster exiting onto Interstate 70 West. This is the correct route for their trip, and they wouldn't have been lost if they took it. See more »

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.
