The comic misadventures of the beleaguered Griswold family continue in this latest "Vacation" outing, the third and most successful of the series. (Over $71,000,000!) This time America's most dedicated dad (Chevy Chase) is determined to stay at home to create "the most fun-filled old fashioned family Christmas ever" -- but life has a particular way of throwing wet logs on Clark Griswold's fire. Look for Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus (TV's "Seinfeld") in a supporting role. Written by John Hughes ("Home Alone" series).




  • Unacceptable National Lampoon’s Vacation movie

    By The Sci-Fi Master
    Okay. I used to like it until I was sixteen in 2013, which was when I grew furious about the stupid climax. This isn’t as good as A Christmas Story. See that one instead. It’s really good. I still despise this movie today.
  • Timeless Classic!

    This is the best Christmas movie ever made! I watch it at least 2-3 times a year and laugh just as hard as I did the first time I saw it. “It’s a Beaut!”

    Guilty pleasure and can’t go a holiday without.

    All I see are 5 star reviews, so how is this movie only 64% on Rotten Tomatoes?! Everyone I know loves and cherishes this all-time Christmas classic. This is one of favorite comedies including non-Christmas comedies. So watch this movie and have the Hap, Hap, Happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby danced with Danny F*cking Kaye!!!

    Idk why the rating is so low. This is a classic comedy for any season. Low raters are crazy haters.
  • One of the GOAT!

    By NirkOne
    This movie was made so well that every scene is perfect. The plot, characters and their relationship, scenery all mesh together in a hilarious tapestry of good humor and great laughs. I saw this movie in the theater while in Germany. My only question at the time? What is a Wal-Mart??
  • Simply the Best

    By Stingwray111
    I have watched this movie every Christmas Eve since it came out. ...and maybe a few time in between :) You would think that after that long that it would'nt be as funny anymore. Wrong! lol I still laugh my butt off watching. I will always love this one. I've seen the others, and like 'em also but not near as much as this one. Although Wally World was pretty funny.
