Despite Chevy Chase's decent effort trying to revive the Griswold franchise, VEGAS VACATION is just a big disappointment. This one could have just premiered on TV, as it resembles that sort of mediocrity.

...the Griswolds bring down the house.

It's a bad sign when National Lampoon wants its name out of the title.

The subplots involving D'Angelo and Newton and Ethan Embry -- the Griswolds' son, who can't stop winning -- have their charms.
March 26, 2009
A tepid fourth entry in the popular 1980s series that is decidedly showing its age.

The fourth and weakest trip with the hapless Griswolds.
| Original Score: 2/5

I'll lay you 3-to-1 odds that by the end of this flick even fans will be thinking that this wasn't a trip worth taking.

There is nothing more memorable about Vegas Vacation than the flatness of the writing in Elisa Bell's script and the uninspired direction of first-timer Stephen Kessler.

Full of jokes that fall flat.

The first half hour in particular is clogged with wheezing routines that appear to have no punchlines.
January 1, 2000
Chase unrolls his tired collection of mugs and stumbles, while some truly funny performers - particularly Sid Caesar and the usually reliable Wallace Shawn - are wasted in do-nothing roles.
January 1, 2000
So far from funny it's actually painful to sit through.

Many gags from the previous movies are repeated

There should be a self-help group where insecure people make themselves feel better by constantly repeating: "He's Chevy Chase and I'm not."
January 1, 2000
This is not the sort of comedy that asks much of a viewer, and it's not as if you have to engage your brain.

Somewhere along the way, the filmmakers lost sight of what made the original Vacation funny. It wasn't the actual goal... but the journey.

This is one vacation that went off the rails from the outset.
