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

3.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, ok blu ray picture June 12, 2013
By Donny
Verified Purchase
I love this movie,its a comedy classic,every scene is just hilarious, i love the ending, i'm glad they changed it because originally they weren't suppose to go into Wally World, Clark goes to Roy Wallys house and holds him hostage for closing the park and has him dance, John Candy was so perfect as the security guard, i love the part where hes talking real fast to Roy Wally and blabbering to him and he says QUIET!!! lmao, my issue isn't with this movie in no way at all, i love it, its with the blu ray picture, i have the 20th anniversary dvd from 2003 and to be honest the picture is way better on it than this, i can't believe i'm saying this but i've compared both pictures and the 20th anniversary has better color and sharper images, just my opinion, i know some people will disagree with me, but if you have the 20th anniversary dvd, hold on to it, this one is not worth getting, the only great thing about it is the 85 minute making of documentary with all the actors,other than that everything else is the same as on the other dvd, except the family truckster featurette, overall great classic comedy movie, average blu ray dvd.

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......

5.0 out of 5 stars Always fun January 4, 2014

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Holds up over the years-so so blu ray package October 26, 2013
After 30 years the film holds up.

Sure, the technology in it is dated now but when you get past that little detail you still love the film.

Funny. Walt Disney look a likes, the late John Candy.

Of ALL the films it is this one & the third film that made a franchise.

All star cast.

So, they released the film onto blu ray for the 30th anniversary. If you are a true Vacation fan you will be disappointed by the extras. The commentary used on a previous DVD release and all they added was the "Inside Story" shown on the Biography Channel. So, why not something new from the cast and crew.

If you are a fan you will still love the film here but you will be disappointed by the extras.

A classic from start to finish. The best of all the `Vacation` series , putting aside `Christmas Vacation` which was in another category.

Entertaining and fun to watch but it would not be my idea of a good vacation to go on. Beverly D'Angelo is the reason I watch any of the vacation movies.

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
