Editorial Reviews

Everything is planned packed and about to go hilariously wrong. The Griswolds are going on vacation. In the driver's seat is Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) an Everyman eager to share the open road and the wonders of family togetherness. Myriad mishaps crude kin (Randy Quaid) encounters with a temptress (Christie Brinkley) financial woes Aunt Edna (Imogene Coca) on the roof one security guard (John Candy) and 2460 miles later it's a wonder the Griswolds are together. There's never been a family vacation like it. Except maybe yours. And that helps explain why National Lampoon's Vacation remains so popular.and so very funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION BLU-RAY May 24, 2013
By Ben30
Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of this film NATIONAL LAMPOONS VACATION
i already own the 20th anniversary edition dvd that was released in 2003
which had a very small featurette about the making of the film and a commentary track
which i didn't think much of

and then Warner bros released the film on blu-ray about 2 years ago i think
absolute waste of time the blu-ray release is, cause it's exactly the same as the 20th anniversary dvd
the picture quality is pretty good better than the DVD but the extras/special features are the same
as the 20th anniversary dvd
so there's nothing new

so i definitely wasn't going to buy this blu-ray release and in the mean time
hopeing that Warner bros would give this film the special treatment it deserves
and Warner bros have finally did it this year 2013

i bought the 30th anniversary edition blu-ray this week
and it's the best version you'll ever get of NATIONAL LAMPOONS VACATION
the picture quality is pretty good for a blu-ray in Widescreen of course
but the Highlight on this 30th anniversary blu-ray release is
the Brand new 90min Documentary of the making of the film
excellent making of Doco, for a fan i was happy as can be
interviews with all the actors/actress's from the film, well most of the actors anyway
Chevy chase, Beverly D' Angelo, Anthony michael Hall, Dana barron,
Christie brinkley and Harold ramis, Matty simmons, Eugene Levy,
and the list goes on
the only person not interviewed for some reason is Randy quaid
theres rare behind the scenes footage, outtakes, Deleted scenes etc
it's an incredible Documentary, any fan of this film will not be dissapointed

there is still an audio commentary by Harold ramis & Chevy chase from the

This is a very funny movie. The colors and clarity on this blu-ray are great. Chevy Chase is a master of comedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get this movie. August 10, 2014
Verified Purchase
What a great movie. If you are looking for the commentary track - it's here (it's from the 20-year special). The commentary track combined with the behind the scenes special made this worth it for what was a great movie by itself.

Amazon gave a warning about the region not playing in the US but this plays fine on my Blu-Ray player in the US (It's a Blu-Ray not a DVD)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Movie May 3, 2014
Verified Purchase
Love this movie and always have. It seems funnier today than when it first came out. It seems to have aged like a fine wine. Only flaw that I would give it is that Christie Brinkley couldn't act her way out of a paper bag. The transfer looks good and the picture is very clear. I also loved all the detailed, behind-the-scenes extras.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny. Every. Freaking. Time. April 20, 2014
Verified Purchase
Chevy Chase was certainly a genius too bad he knew how smart he was. We would have seen him much more often and loved every minute of it. Vacation kicks off a quadrilogy of Griswold goofy movies. Vaction and Christmas Vacation might well be tied for first place, but Vacation definitely has a special place in everyone's heart with some of the most hilarious situations. It looks fantastic on this blu-ray transfer, but you always wish it could be less grainy.

However, the detail is preserved and it's spec free.

5.0 out of 5 stars The original vacation movie is a classic March 17, 2014
Written by John Hughes and then Harold and Chevy added some new stuff. Christmas vacation was better but 30 years latter this film still holds up. The late John Candy and the late Harold Ramis are both gone. Chevy was great as Clark and Beverly was a good pick as the mom. Randy was funny but Christmas vacation he really shines. Everyone in the cast added to this picture including Christie Brinkley and Eugene Levy. Many of the lines in the movie are just as funny today. The documentary on this bluray the making of was fun to see. Take a trip down holiday road......

This is my favorite movie of the series. Not much they can do to improve the picture source on a 30+ year old film print, but still better than the dvd quality.

Will this version be edited?
I'd say No there is no Real difference between the 30th Ann. Edition BR and the previous BR except Vacation Memories which is extremely Sad
everything else as far as extras are carried over from the Previous Release!
The previous BR was UNCUT home video version so I'm sure the upcoming 30th Blu... Read More
