The Griswolds win a vacation tour across Europe where the usual havoc ensues. (IMDb)

National Lampoon's Vacation (1983)

The Griswold family’s cross-country drive to the Walley World theme park proves to be much more arduous than they ever anticipated. (IMDb)

Definitely some laugh-out-loud moments, mostly thanks to Clark Griswold’s manic drive and ridiculous stubbornness, but they are too often separated by awkwardly slow scenes with bad attempts at humour. 30 more words

I didn’t grow up reading National Lampoon magazine or listening to their radio show, but after watching this documentary, maybe I should. I vaguely remember seeing the mags on the newsstand. 156 more words
