    This is a hilarious movie. It takes a simple idea of a family road trip and makes it one of Chevy Chase's best films he has ever starred in. 6 out of 5 stars.

    One of my absolute favorites. The entire cast is perfect in this flick. I come back to it often. Definitely one of Chevy Chase's best performances.

    Still the best of the Vacation series there is featuring obsessed Clarke pushing his family dream of taking a road trip to Wally World only to find it is closed. Best aspects are the premise, Clarke's obsession, the reluctant family, meeting cousin Eddie and the family, the policeman who pulls over Clarke to question him about the remains of the dog that Clarke accidentally left tied to the bumper bar, and the way the family deals with the untimely death of miserable Aunt Edna.

    Vacation is funny, smart, and an all around fun film. Though it can be predictable at times.

    What can you say.... it is a classic. Chase is in top form as the over eager, nostalgic seeking dad who just wants a good old fashioned family vacation and the memories that come with it.... what he gets is a hilarious cross country adventure with disaster at every turn.
