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
The man giving bad directions in downtown St. Louis says the ironic line, "You don't wanna know from me man, this ain't even my neighborhood. I'm from the west side of Chicago, here on vacation." The Griswolds are also from the west side of Chicago, (here) on vacation. See more »
Clark and the Motorcycle Cop are talking in close-up at the rear of the vehicle. A movie light is clearly visible reflecting off the cop's helmet as the sun is shining in a different place on the helmet. See more »
This is so dangerous, Clark. We have no business being in this neighborhood.
Oh I don't know, hun. It gives us a chance to see a part of America we don't get to see.
That's a GOOD thing!
Not it's not. We can't just ignore the plight of the inner cities. See the plight kids?

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.
