National Lampoons: Vacation Collection
Holiday Road...the Griswolds are on vacation, laughs abound on every mile of these four trips.
Everything is planned, packed - and about to go hilariously wrong. The Griswolds are going on vacation. In the driver's seat is Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase), an Everyman eager to share the open road and the wonders of family togetherness. Myriad mishaps, crude kin (Randy Quaid), encounters with a temptress (Christie Brinkley), financial woes, Aunt Edna (Imogene Coca) on the roof, one security guard (John Candy) and 2,460 miles later, it's a wonder the Griswolds are together. There's never been a family vacation like it. Except maybe yours. And that helps explain why National Lampoon's Vacation remains so popular and so very funny.
The first time the Griswolds took a trip, moviegoers everywhere went along for the ride.and went bonkers! Now they're into even zanier sightseeing in National Lampoon's European Vacation, directed by Amy Heckerling (Clueless, Fast Times at Ridgemont High). Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo return as Clark and Ellen, winners of a European tour on which their teenagers Rusty (Jason Lively) and Audrey (Dana Hill) join them. Deluxe accommodations.aren't. Clark tries left-sided English driving, leaving Stonehenge unhinged. In Bavaria a slap-dancing polka turns into a slaphappy free-for-all. It's a wacky, wide world of holiday road havoc!
This Holiday season Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) vows his clan will enjoy 'the most fun-filled family Christmas ever.' Before you can sing "Fa-la-la-la-lah," he decks the halls with howls of folly in the perennial favourite National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Seeing is believing. There are 25,000 lights on the rook. An exploding turkey on the dining room table. A SWAT team taking siege outside. A festive supporting cast (including Beverly D'Angelo, Randy Quaid, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Juliette Lewis, William Hickey and more). And a John Hughes script of wit, heart and sheer goofiness. Yule love it!
Chevy Chase, Randy Quaid and Beverly D'Angelo return in the fourth installment of the blockbuster "Vacation" series. With Dad's prompting, the Griswold family reluctantly hits the road for another hilarious vacation, this time to the glitzy mecca of Elvis-impersonators, slot machines and showgirls: Las Vegas. Plans to renew their wedding vows take a slight detour when Vegas veteran Wayne Newton shows more than a casual interest in Mrs. Griswold!
