This was on tv on the weekend and I was shocked at how funny it still is, and equally how non-family it is. I had to explain most of it to my daughter. Don't get me started on the nana being left on the brother's doorstep. Only if you're feeling nostalgic.
This seems like a funny sort of movie to include under the "Family" section of "WatchNow". I and my family sat down to watch it. It turned out to be rated M with partial nudity, adult concepts and innuendo. Disappointing classification.
That apart, once the kids go to bed I might be able to watch it.
Classic. This movie just doesn't age.
Last summer this was the family movie on one of the networks. Starting at the special early time it took less than half an hour for Clarke to have his Ferrari woman fantasy, and less than an hour for the hick cousin to proclaim "daddy say"; the best at
"regarding french kissing". My partner figured that the programmer didn't do their homework, I'd rather believe they had seen the movie many years ago and like holidays past only remembered the good parts. That's the charm of this series, there's no such thing as the perfect holiday, only the perfect memory of not being at work.
When a grown man snaps at his own beloved family and tells thems straight-up 'I think you're all f****d in the head' - THAT'S good cinema.
All time classic. Chevy at his best. I've seen it 10 times and still enjoy it.
The equivalent of American Pie in its day. A real scream!
Typically good National Lampoons Humour.
An oldy but a goody
Still the original and the best, I had not seen it for some time, worth getting out from time to time to have a good laugh, even though by now we know what is about to happen, rent it and enjoy it!
