National Lampoon's Vacation: 30th Anniversary (BD)

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 2,460 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.

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
that blu-ray release is waste of money, 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 the 2010 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

Warner bros are advertising this new blu-ray re-issue as 30th anniversary edition
and it's the best version you'll ever get of NATIONAL LAMPOONS VACATION
so i went ahead and bought it of amazon.com and i have no regrets
this new blu-ray transfer looks amazing and much much clearer picture quality than the previous DVD release
plus the sound quality has been given a boost to 5.

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)

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

Watching this movie 30 years later as an adult with kids instead of as a kid made it even funnier and made me appreciate it even more. Really, this movie is one of those rare ones where everything just comes together and simply is perfect.
I was compelled to purchase this dvd when I received a look of befuddlement from my teenage daughter as she asked me..."who is Clark Griswold?" when I had just broken the news to her that we were going on a family road trip to California (from Florida) and that I was planning it out hard core Clark Griswold style.
At first I was shocked, angry, and confused by her question...I thought...is this some sort of sick joke? How can she not know who Clark Griswold is?? REAL tomato ketchup Eddie? Then I remembered my age .

Revisiting this classic as an adult (well...physically anyway) was a fun combination of nostalgia and laughter...they don't make them like they used to. I didn't realize just how many classic and quotable lines came from this movie. The extra content was interesting and fun to watch...but the movie itself has too many hilarious and memorable scenes and moments to mention here as anyone having seen the movie no doubt already knows.
All in all, the movie is worth owning, hands down...if you haven't seen it in awhile you're in a for a treat. Spend the extra few dollars and get the blu ray, might as well.

I've seen this film approximately 30 to 40 times in my life, and I never get tired of it. Boneheaded, but well meaning father, Clark Griswold, driving his wife and two kids on a cross country family vacation, from Chicago to a California theme park, to spend time with all of them, before the kids are too old for such things.

Needless to say, absolutely nothing goes according to plans: they got lost before even leaving Chicago. Their new car isn't what they had planned. They're saddled with driving an obnoxious aunt to Phoenix. They get lost in the Arizona desert, after visiting obnoxious, trailer trash in-laws, and then robbed by local hicks. All of these absurd, yet wholly possible, circumstances and occurrences pile up, yet Clark Griswold (Chase, in one of his funniest roles as the hapless, clueless father) is determined to have a good holiday with the family, even if it kills them.

Beverly D'Angelo is equally good as the (sexy, but not overly) housewife who has enough disaster and wants to turn around and go home.

Great score by Lindsay Buckingham also.

You must own this on Blu-Ray cause it looks and sounds amazing.

Many people are already familiar with the classic family road trip movie so they know what to expect. The main special feature of the 30th Anniversary release is the documentary with cast and crew of the film. It was clearly a TV special on the film with the commercials cut out so it was really annoying of having the short clips before where a commercial would have been and then hearing the same thing again just a few moments later. The TV special was interesting and informing about the film though, so looking past the TV editing job, it was worth watching. The quality of the film was pretty good too, but video and audio. Many people have complained the audio is not stereo or surround, but it is in its original mono track. Those who want the original theatrical release will be happy. Those who want a full surround sound experience will be disappointed and will need to play the audio with a DSP effect.

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
