The Wagon Queen Family Truckster. You think you hate it now, but wait till you drive it.

I think, next to Fletch, this is the best Chevy Chase movie ever. Seriously.

If you can get past the fact that it's a little bit dated, it's actually pretty funny. It's the family vacation from hell, and it spawned three sequels (all of them inferior, except possibly Christmas Vacation).

For my money this is the best of the National Lampoon movies (yes, even better than the Corey Haim-Corey Feldman team-up Last Resort), the one of the best Chevy Chase movies and the best in the travelogue genre. Vacation is h-i-l-a-r-i-o-u-s (that spells "funny") and also features a skinny-dipping scene with Christie Brinkley. Could you possibly want any more out of a movie?

Chase plays bumbling family-man Clark W. Griswold, who has planned out a cross-country vacation to Walley World (a Disney World knock- off, to be sure). But once they get on the open road, the Griswold family finds out everything that can go wrong will (Murphy Brown's law, right?). Their hubcaps are stolen in East St. Louis (Good thing they didn't stop off at McCluer High School), they get lost in the desert, their redneck relatives have them take nasty old Aunt Edna with them, Aunt Edna dies in the car. Or was that my family's summer road trip of 1992? Either way, Vacation is a definitive 80's comedy you should definitely take a look at (or you could watch it).
