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 gas station and sporting goods store, where Clark purchases his BB gun, were located at the intersection of Ocean Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard in Santa Monica, California. Both buildings have since been torn down, and replaced by high-rise apartments. (In truth, the buildings were never torn down. They were once restaurants that have become other restaurants).

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?

In the 2003 DVD, "I'm So Excited" by The Pointer Sisters has been taken out from the scenes where The Girl In The Ferrari is driving alongside Clark. Instead, "Little Boy Sweet" (which was originally in one scene of the film) replaces "I'm So Excited". 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
