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
John Candy's cameo at the end of the film was only made possible due to the poor reception the original ending produced from test audiences. Harold Ramis turned to Candy, because he found his character Wally Wypyzypychwk, a Canadian security guard, which Candy had created for his stand-up and television appearances, to be just right for the part. Candy basically modeled his performance as Lasky after the nervy security guard character he had been portraying for years. See more »
They are clearly in Colorado (mountains) and Clark says: "Hey, hey, easy kids. Everybody in the car. Boat leaves in two minutes ... Or perhaps you don't want to see the second largest ball of twine on the face of the earth, which is only four short hours away?" The second largest ball of twine is located in Cawker City, Kansas. The largest ball of twine is located in Darwin, Minn. Both of which are clearly east of Colorado and not west, which is where the Griswolds are headed. See more »
This is one of those movies that i loved when i was younger so i really didn't know what to think as i watched it again. But to my surprise it is still charming, funny and sweet. Enter Chevy Chase as the last family guy, just wanting to spend time with his loving family. A hilarious journey from Chicago to California to get to an amusement park. You may think, that shouldn't be a problem, but it is. This is one vacation you will never forget. I have always liked Chevy Chase and if you watch this movie you will know why. The sweet caring family man losing more and more of his mind is nothing less than funny as hell. Maybe you will think twice about taking your family on vacation after watching this movie. I rate this movie 7/10
