Vegas Vacation Reviews
Such an obvious setup, even for a Vacation movie. Fourth Vacation wastes no time getting family to Vegas. Not really all that good--gags fall flat left and right--but surprisingly watchable; Randy Quaid gets most of the laughs. Actress Marisol Nichols was so extraordinarily good-looking I found her a distraction; scene where Chevy Chase (for no apparent reason) climbs a telephone tower on top of Hoover Dam also seems alarmingly out-of-character (and out of nowhere). If you cry foul for my generous 2 and a half star rating, at least grant me that it is much better than EUROPEAN VACATION.
As Far As The Vacation Films Go, You Will Either Like This One Or You Won't. Personally I Thought This One Was One Of The Better Ones Of The Bunch, Though I Was Never Big Fan Of The First One & Not A Fan At All Of The European Vacation Film -- The Christmas Vacation Film To Me Was A C + At Best.
Chevy Chase Was On His Way Down When This Film Hit The Scene & As The Reviews Show It Didn't Help To Boost Him Up Again. Some Think That This Film Was A Great Waste Of His Talent But To Me I Don't Think That Much More Can Be Expect From A Film Like This One.
All & All This Film Will Have A Few Laughs In It & Some Not So Funny Moments In It -- That Were Hoped To Be Funny I'm Sure But To Many Viewers They Just Didn't Deliverer.
For A Comedy Franchise Like This One, I Give This Film A C + (Common) ***
