National Lampoon’s Vacation


Its been 30 years since the Griswold family took us along on their wild ride across the country to Walley World. Since it’s release in 1983, Vacation has joined the long list of National Lampoon classics and has since spawned three more vacation adventures. Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo have, of course, been featured in every film, and writer John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) returned to write the European and Christmas additions in 1985 and 1989. A fifth sequel starring both Chase and D’Angelo is supposed to be out next year, but all reports are that the movie is experiencing delays. If you haven’t seen the original film though, you should definitely check it out.
