Bryan Lienesch76 - There are those that will tear 'Vacation' a new one, but they're expecting something more, something elegant. They want that trip to Paris when they should be plenty satisified with (another) hijinx-filled trip to Wally World.
Comedy: 6
Sex Appeal: 3
Scary: 2
Rewatch: 5
Minnesota Man70 - This trip down the holiday road isn't as bumpy as you might expect.

Rob from GuysFilmQuest35 - I laughed a few times, but they tried way too hard and a lot of the jokes were just terrible.
Lisa Marie Bowman20 - Annoying and terrible.
