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 license plate of the Griswolds' old car was RPL-434. See more »
When Clark turns in his old car at the dealer, his old car going into the cruncher is different than the one deposited back on the lot. Going in, it has stock hubcaps and black tires, and the smashed one has mag rim and a white-wall tire in front. See more »
Ain't never seen anyone so shit-all stupid as you driving off that road. You musta got manure for your brains.
Yeah, well, I'm from out of town. So, what's the bill? Come on, come on, how much?
How much you got?
No, I'm asking how much the repairs are.
And I'm asking how much you got!
You're out of your mind. Look, I don't have time to play around, OK? So how much is it?
[waving a wrench]
All of it, boy!
What does your sheriff think of your business practices?

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 »
The TV version includes some alternate lines, including:
The man they ask directions from responds with "Who do I look like, Christopher Columbo?" instead of his R-rated response.
Eddie's daughter credits her science teacher, not her father, with saying she's the best at french kissing.
When they lose the small suitcase while driving, in the movie version, Clark says the only thing that can't be replaced that was lost is Ellen's diaphragm, which is changed to birth control pills for the edited version.
In Illinois, Chicago, the suburban Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) decides to travel on vacation with his wife Ellen (Beverly D'Angelo) and their son Rusty (Anthony Michael Hall) and their daughter Audrey (Dana Barron) driving his new station wagon to the Walley World theme park in California. Ellen and the children suggest that they fly to the destination, but the stubborn Clark wants to spend more time with his family and say no to the proposed airplane travel.
The Griswold family has many problems along their journey and they visit Ellen's cousin Catherine (Miriam Flynn), her useless husband Eddie (Randy Quaid) and their children. When they leave the place, they are forced to give a ride to the inconvenient Aunt Edna (Imogene Coca) and her hateful dog. Soon Clark learns that his planned journey has become a trip from hell.
"Vacation" is a hilarious road movie that makes anyone laughs. The clumsy Clark Griswold provokes very funny situations with his attitudes, supported by his beautiful wife. Unfortunately this type of naive comedy is forgotten by the studios on the present days. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Férias Frustradas" ("Frustrated Vacation")
