When Clark Griswold puts his mind to something, we soon realize he hasn't got one. Still, nothing stops him when the vacation bug hits. This time, he's chosen Las Vegas, the new family entertainment capital of America! Chevy Chase returns as bubbly, bumbling Clark in Vegas Vacation, a jokers-are-wild laugh fest including two other stars from past Vacations. Beverly D'Angelo is back as wife Ellen, doting on the guy she calls "Sparky," and Randy Quaid again delights as grubby goof ball Cousin Eddie. Ethan Embry (That Thing You Do!) and screen-debuting Marisol Nichols are Griswold teens who love the round-the-clock nightlife - as long as they don't share it with Mom and Dad! From Seigfried and Roy's extravaganza to a Hoover Dam tour, from cruising to losing (Wallace Shawn as a shifty blackjack dealer) to amorous crooning (Wayne Newton falls for Ellen): watch Clark try to keep family and wallet together!Written by
The War dealer is named Nick Mazzola. He was also the blackjack dealer in Rain Man (1988) at Caesars Palace, as well as a dealer in Casino (1995). In real life, Nick was a blackjack dealer at Caesars Palace in the 1970s and 1980s. See more »
When the Griswolds are shown on the airplane en route to Las Vegas, there are seats in the middle of the plane's cabin, rather than simply a few on the left and a few on the right. Wide bodied aircraft like this are typically used for much longer flights than the one from Chicago to Las Vegas. See more »
Vegas Vacation and Christmas Vacation are my 2 favorites of the Vacation movies. Vegas Vacation was very funny. Good cast, and good story. I really enjoyed it. Lets face it, Chevy Chase has made some pretty crappy movies, but the Vacation ones seem to always make it for him. I like, its worthing buying.
