Funny. I'm over them though.
'Vegas' has it's moments - good and bad

"It is the same story, the Griswolds are off to wreak havoc on another city. This time Clark decides to take the whole family to Las Vegas so he and Ellen can renew their wedding vows for their anniversary. They manage to leave their unique Griswold touch on most Vegas institutions, like a Seigfried and Roy show, a Wayne Newton show and the Hoover Dam. Most of the comedic highlights in this movie come either when the ultimate white-trash, cousin Eddie is onscreen or when Clark is at the blackjack table.
My favorite part of this movie is Ethan Embry as the most dimwitted Russ to date. He buys a fake ID, becomes a high roller and wins 4 cars gambling. I would recommend renting this movie, but not buying it, the 'bonus' features are light."
Viva Vegas Vacation!

"This is the funniest movie in the Vacation series since the original. The Griswolds decide that their children are grown up enough for them to visit Sin City. Since they happen to be staying at the Mirage, they naturally go to see Siegfried and Roy's magic act. Of course, Clark (Chevy Chase) gets picked out of the audience to participate with an illusion on stage. They make him disappear until the end of the show, when he appears on stage with the white tigers. Later, they go to see Mr. Vegas - Wayne Newton - in concert. Of course, Clark's wife Ellen (Beverly D'Angelo) gets picked out of the audience to sing a duet with Wayne. Clark's son Rusty buys a fake I.D. from a Frank Sinatra soundalike, and becomes an underage high roller. Clark's daughter Audrey learns to become a go-go dancer, and along the way meets a couple of the guys from Beatlemania, who inform her that they've been together longer than the real Beatles! It's hard to believe that they didn't run into any Elvis impersonators in Vegas. Fortunately, the Griswolds do run into cousin Eddie (Randy Quaid) and his cuckoo clan who have moved to Nevada. Even Christie Brinkley is back for a brief cameo. If you're looking for some laughs, it's a safe bet you'll find them watching "Vegas Vacation!""
Another funny Griswold vacation...

"Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo put together another hilarious Griswold family vacation. While Ellen (D'Angelo) is busy falling for Wayne Newton, Clark (Chase) continues to screw things up by gambling away all of their vacation money. Eddie (Randy Quaid) somehow manages to meet up with the Griswold's again, continuing to act like a neanderthal. Rusty becomes a high roller and Audrey gets a hangover. If you liked the previous Vacation movies, I recommend Vegas Vacation. Even though it was not as good as Christmas Vacation, it is worth adding to your collection."
