Marla W. (disneyprincess) from MARSHFIELD, MA
Reviewed on 4/6/2010...
The comical chemistry of Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo is just priceless! That's why there have been 4 Vacation movies (the one with just Cousin Eddie, played by Randy Quaid, doesn't count because they weren't in it!) and there was even a commercial of the two of them during the Super Bowl this year as these two characters! I've heard talk of there being a new Vacation movie too and these two would make an appearance. As enjoyable as this is, I'll be the first one there if they can make it as good as this one. This is the best out of all of the Vacation movies. Anthony Michael Hall is great as their son, hard to believe that he grew up to be the same guy from the series Dead Zone, after seeing him in this role. I think my favorite part of this movie is when they strap the dead aunt, played by Imogene Coca, to the roof because they don't want to smell her! And it's raining cats and dogs of course and they are on their merry way, still trying to get to Wally World. Such a classic!

Tie this DVD to the bumper.....
Special Features Specialist | Anaheim, CA USA | 10/22/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"(Instead of reviewing a film you probably already know, I stick to the DVD special features).Those Extras:Commentary: Was ok. Chase tries to be funny on every line, Quaid is only in the film for five minutes so he's basically mute. DeAngelo is also missing. Producer Simmons and Director Ramis come off best with info, but is it just me, or does Ramis sound like he recorded his part seperate from every one else??New Interviews: Pathetic. They embody some really silly features in the body of the family truckster: Audrey 1, Dana Barron, is actually glimpsed for a second, but isn't given much to do; some inane stuff involving singing moments from the film, accessed through the truckster radio; Producer Simmons is ok; lenghty talk with stunt coordinator Dick Ziker; and TONS of time spent talking to.....Brinkley??? Hall, Chase, DeAngelo, Quaid, et al are somewhere else.Introduction: Extremely weak. Chase, Simmons and Quaid sit on a couch for about thrity seconds, Chase cracking bad quips.Overall: No behind the scenes, and some particulary stupid choices for the things that come closest to it. Ramis and Simmons contributions make this barely worth a buy."

"This is a fantastic comedy. Though it is over 20 years old, it still holds up remarkably well. It is one of those movies like Caddyshack in which you might not remember it line for line, but you can rattle off nearly a dozen or so parts that made you laugh. The special edition is not so special, but the movie itself is 5 stars."
One of the best!!

"Hands down, one of the best comedies of the 80's. Chevy was at his best and director Harold Ramis was on a role. (Caddyshack and Stripes.)
Many cuts and versions are out there but the truest I've seen, so far, is the anniversary edition. It's in widescreen (I've heard matted/cropped,not sure, but??), nice 5.1 mix, some decent special features but where are all those deleted scenes and the alternate ending?
Plus, a big [..] I have. "I'm so exited" was the song played when Christie Brinkley pulls along side Chevy(Clark Griswald) in the original. Why, still is "Little boy sweet" a song also by the Pointer Sisters used instead?? Both songs were used in the movie. The latter in the truckstop sceen where Chevy eats the pissed on sandwhich.
Is the copyright on that song that expensive to get it??

Dunno. Great movie. Lotta fun.
Best DVD of it yet. Agreed??"
