Trivia

The college campus shots are from Emory College Oxford Campus in Covington, Georgia, while the "Sorority House" is actually a house on Elm Street just off of the Square. The Square is also shown in the early driving montage, you see the Court House (tall white clock tower), which was seen in every episode of In the Heat Of The Night, also filmed in Covington.

Goofs

After bursting back into the cockpit, Russ claims the co-pilot had taken the aircraft (later claimed to be an A318) to 60,000 ft. This is not possible as the maximum altitude for an aircraft of that type is approximately 40,000 ft. See more »

Quotes

Debbie Griswold: Hey, you know, you never told us why you keep that teddy bear on the front of your truck.
Trucker: Oh, it makes the kids feel more comfortable.
Rusty Griswold: Oh yeah? You have kids?
Trucker: No.

Vacation, The latest one.
25 August 2015 | by mudobberSee all my reviews

I rate this movie a 6, the movie was funny, off the wall, typical of the "Vacation" movies,had some good flash backs from the first movie, laughed a lot, Chevy Chase was his typical self dropping things and doing funny bits, all the character's played their parts well,and the rental car was hilarious, but I don't see what is so funny about the the words f**k and motherf**k in a movie like this, even the the opening and closing song was stupid and uncalled for, the f word was used more then they used their names. Why do the movie makers think this draws people to watch movies, it turns me off to hear this all the way through a movie. I am not a prude, have heard it before, just not necessary every other word.

WAKE UP Hollywood IT DOES NOT HAVE TO HAVE THE F WORD IN EVERY MOVIE.
