Trivia

This movie retraced the trek to Walley World, California, the original destination in National Lampoon's Vacation (1983). This means that out of the five Vacation films, the only time the Griswolds left the United States for their vacation was in National Lampoon's European Vacation (1985) all the others were domestic ones, including National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989), which took place right at their home.

When the Griswolds are eating with Audrey and Stone, a cow in the background constantly disappears and reappears. See more »

Quotes

Rusty Griswold: [on ATVs] Are there helmets?
Stone Crandall: Yeah, I keep 'em with the tampons.
[drives off]
Rusty Griswold: It's just basic safety.

Everyone thinks this is a family movie?...IT'S NOT
27 August 2015 | by tillydimechSee all my reviews

It's getting annoying seeing reviews giving this film a 1/10 because people have misinterpreted 'Vacation' for a family film and been disgusted by it. It's crude humour and outrageously funny if you like movies like Due Date and The Hangover and deserves more than a 1/10 (Mums who haven't bothered to check the rating).

The film its-self is also good and I think it's rating has been brought down by disgusted parents who's children have seen a little more than is desired. The acting is good enough, the jokes are tops and the situations get more and more extreme.

If you want a family movie take your kids to something else but if you like a rude comedy with plenty of laughs, this one's for you.
