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 Grover (Frank McRae) first appears near the end of the film, he asks "What's going on here?" before being held at gun point and being forced by Clark Griswold to "lie down, roll over, and stay." McRae played a teacher in Red Dawn (1984), where he would ask the same question before getting shot for real. See more »
On the Blu-ray Disc version during the "singing" sequence early in the film, the subtitles incorrectly refer to Clark as "Carl." This may be a deliberate reference to the goof of people getting his name wrong throughout the Vacation franchise, though. 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.

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.
