There are 4 films in this imported Irish collection: National Lampoon's Vacation, European Vacation, Christmas Vacation and Vegas Vacation. You get the unrated versions of the movies. While I admit that I love all 4 films I must say this set is somewhat disappointing in terms of quality and extras (although it is a step up from the DVDs). None of the legendary deleted scenes (as mentioned in the interesting documentary) are included and both the audio commentaries are fairly bland. Overall, the picture and audio quality are average and in need of a good remastering. These are 4 star films in a 2 star package. The price is right so it could work as a value pack but I wish this was a deluxe collection. Region 2/B digital copy codes do not work in the US.

I was searching for National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation for a gift. Even in November I could not find it for a decent price (the local big box stores did not have it in stock--in November) Even Amazon had it out of stock.
Persistence pays off, though, since I was able to get all four movies for less than $18.00 & with the Amazon Prime trial membership I got them before Christmas too.
The day after I ordered this (the Sunday before Christmas) the local big box stores were selling Christmas Vacation for $10-$15, so I think I got a great deal.
This is not a traditional box set-- all 4 movies are in one DVD case. The case itself is pretty flimsy since my 2 year old has already destroyed it.
Per another review, yes these are widescreen, but we LIKE widescreen.
All in all, $18 for 4 classic Chevy Chase movies is a great price.

Five stars for all four classic Vacation movies. I never get tired of these films. They're fun and silly and always promise a good time. The packaging of this is less than stellar though. They could've done a better job. The cover of the package is basically disguising that this is from the "Four Film Favorite" series. Most of those sets run from about $8-$12, which makes this Vacation set a bit overpriced at $25 for what you're getting. There are 2 discs in this. You have to flip the disc over to play one of the other movies. It should've been broken out into four discs. I think the movies deserve that. They also should've remastered the films at this point and added a hefty amount of bonus features which I'm sure exist somewhere. Still five stars for the movies themselves. I'd give the packaging two stars. This was put together very lazily, but since this is the only set that exists with all four films, you take what you can get.

This is one of the funniest comedy series ever to be made. Chevy Chase is really on top of his game in these films. You can probably enjoy most of these films with your family, but number 2 has quite alot of nudity, and number 1 has some swears but i'm sure your kids will be able to watch them with you. In every film, they change the kids to make them stay around the same age, that's what chevy chase said in the commetary in the second one.
Vacation- very funny with great plot and actors. This by far would have to be the funniest of the whole series. Since this is a special edition, they put in alot of features which was great because the non special edition version of this dvd had barely any features. The commentary in this is nice. The whole family does the commentary.
European Vacation- this is a hilarious sequel to the classic comedy. It's not as good as Christmas Vacation or the original Vacation but don't let that fool you, it's still a movie that will make you laugh all the way through it. The special features do lack on this disk for all we get is a trailer and a commentary by Chevy Chase (which sucked, i'm not kidding). Anyway, this is still a hilarious film.
Christmas Vacation- this is just as good as the first one. It will make you howl with laughter. This is the perfect Christmas comedy and the family could watch it. Now, warner bros box sets usually make the first one a special editon, but it this box set, the first and this one get the special edition treatment. This has the most features out of all the disks
Vegas Vaction- what can i say, this was a funny movie, but wasn't that strong. mostly because national lampoons didn't make it. But it's still a funny movie and is really a family movie. This is an ok disk when it comes to features, but what can you do.
So, buckle up and get ready to ride with the Griswalds in a non-stop pack of laughter.

A great Blu-ray set that plays in U.S. players and contains all four theatrical versions of the vacation films. Many people complain that European Vacation was edited from the original theatrical and VHS version, but it was not. There are a few spots where there was some censoring, but this was done prior to the film's release so that it could obtain and PG-13 rating instead of R - drawing in a bigger crowd to theaters. A director's cut would have been nice, but this set is everything it should be and I have no complaints. It's much better than buying individual releases, but the packaging is very basic, so if you care about things like that, it's something to keep in mind.
