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 in Dodge City where Clark taunts the ornery bartender who ends up shooting him with a blank-loaded rifle, one of the prop guys ended up playing a practical joke on the cast members during one of the takes. During that particular take, after the bartender shoots at Clark, the prop guy tossed down a fake dummy from the second level of the set and the entire cast jumped in surprise afterward. See more »
In the scene in Kansas when Rusty is asking his cousin Dale whether he had "Pac Man", Dale says "no", but in the very next scene in Dale's room, a portable Pac Man game can be clearly seen on the bed behind Rusty. However, this is Rusty'S Pac Man game. He brought it along on the trip and it can be seen in the Truckster many times throughout the film. So Dale saying he does not have a Pac Man game is correct.

One of my all time favorite movies I own. One of Chevy Chase's finest movie besides The 3 Amigos. It seems that Chevy Chase lost his humor after 3 Amigos. But this movie here had everything you could ask for a comedy, and I've seen a number of them. I'd also like to see Dana Barron (Audrey Griswald) in more movies, cause what a hottie she is. And the rest of the cast did a superb job in making this early '80s movie a box office hit; and I would highly recommend anybody to watch this movie, even if it is for the first time.
