Editor's NoteJoin the Griswolds, a typical suburban family, on their summer vacation, a cross-county trip to their favorite amusement park, Walley World. Everything that can go wrong does go wrong in this outrageous farce, featuring the comic genius of Chevy Chase as the desperate dad looking for fun and Beverly D'Angelo as his willing wife. As they wind their way across the country, the Griswolds are forced to survive a series of absurd events and wacky detours. By the time they finally reach the gates of Walley World, they are more desperate for fun than ever.

Need A Laugh-This Is It !9/1/2010
Had forgotten just how funny this was, purple haze era !!
You can't beat a vacation with Clark W. Griswold8/31/2010
This movie is a CLASSIC! Clark wants this to be the greatest vacation ever and I never thought the movie could get any better and now they add commentary by the entire cast and some nice bonus material making this a must have if you are a fan of the Griswolds. 5.1 digital and the advent of the widescreen hi def flat panel makes for a home theater experience to rival the first time we saw the movie! My sis has been a fan since we saw the original in the theater and this 20th anniversary edition is going to make a great Christmas gift. Highly recommended.
A comedy classic for the ages8/30/2010
Almost 30 years old and still a great movie - an absolute classic with perfect performances from everyone involved. Check out Jane Krakowski (now on 30 Rock) as the Griswolds' cousin in her first film role. Don't just settle for the re-runs on broadcast TV - you need to see the uncut version to get the full Vacation experience. They just don't make 'em like this anymore.
My Husband's all time favorite movie!7/6/2007
This is a great movie that everyone should see at least twice! You will be surprised at all the funny things you missed the first time when you see it the second! Great family fun if your children are old enough for a little sensual humor. We love it!
Take the Holiday Road... again!8/8/2003
Finally, the Griswold's get the treatment they deserve and we get the Vacation of our dreams. With an all-new digital widescreen transfer and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound, this Vacation has never looked or sounded better. In fact the film holds up surprisingly well and appears less dated than it probably should be. The introduction segment is weak but it is nice to see Chevy and Randy hanging out together (even if it is for only like 45 seconds). And the commentary track has its moments but certainly could have used a moderator for all the participants (Anthony Michael Hall, Chevy Chase, Harold Ramis, Matty Simmons, Randy Quaid, and Dana Barron). But let's be honest, the film is really what matters and it is hysterical. Re-live one of the greatest comedies ever, buy it now!
