Editorial Reviews

Europe ... get ready! The Griswolds are back on vacation, and heading your way. In this first sequel to the 1983 film National Lampoon's Vacation, the Griswolds win a trip to Europe! So off they go to see the sights of London, Paris, Italy and Germany. But there's no place like home, and they sure are glad to return to the good old USA.

I'm flabbergasted that they put the dumbed-down tv version of this movie on dvd and not the theatrical version. They took scenes out, changed scenes and dubbed dialog to create this mess of a dvd. Not only that, but the movie looks funny. The aspect ratio they used makes the movie look weird. I was eagerly waiting for this funny, well-done movie to be released on dvd and I am bitterly disappointed at this made-for-tv garbage. This tv version will only appeal to an unsophisticated mass audience.
Attention Warner Home Video: If you are reading this, you need to issue a press release in which you apologize for this garbage and then announce that you will release an uncut version of the movie on dvd.

This is NOT the original version!!! I'm very disappointed that Amazon.com didn't disclose this information. Scenes are missing and parts are dubbed over. Funny parts are still funny but it's just not the same. I feel duped.

I was very disappointed when I purchased the dvd from Amazon.com only to find that parts of the movie are cut and some
of the language has been either eliminated or dubbed.
I expect to purchase a movie in its entirety. I feel
I was cheated. I absolutely loved this movie and
I don't feel we should purchase movies that
have been edited from its original content.

I of course love the first two "Vacation" movies and I always will. So I was excited to see this come out on Blu-Ray. Sadly, this is yet another "cas grab" Blu-Ray that is nothing more than an upconverted DVD in disguise - grainy picture, mediocre sound. You're better off saving a few dollars and getting the DVD instead, as you'll get the exact same home theater experience.

The first time that I watched this movie I was no more than ten and it cracked me up. As I grew I found it more and more comedic every time that I watched. The Griswold's are back and this time they're taking on Europe. The antics that the family gets in are comical for both Americans and Europeans. As any Vacation movie the best part is the family; Clark and Ellen's relationship are constantly tested throughout the movie while their children Rusty and Audrey are up to their usual antics of goofing off. European Vacation has the best daughter/son combination in my opinion. Rusty is the American boy just trying to get anywhere with any European girl while Audrey is mourning over the separation between her and her boyfriend Jack. The whole family is spectacular and for any National Lampoon fan this movie is one of, if not, the greatest in the series.

If you have not seen the vacation movies you do not know what you're missing. Most of the time sequels are not as good as the original movie. You will not find that problem with European Vacation. As always Chevy Chase is extremely funny and will have you crying with laughter. If you have not seen the movie buy it immediately so that you can watch it as soon as possible. These movies have not aged at all and are still relevant and funny today.

When our beloved family wins a trip to Europe can it be anything but comical? Now this one is not as good as others in this series, but, I like them all. I would recommend anyone who owns the first to own them all.

Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo star in this 1985 comedy sequel.
The Griswold family has another disastrous trip after winning on a
game show. This is my favorite in the series and Chevy is great
as usual. This Blu-ray has nice picture and sound, but only
features the trailer & commentary. I recommend this.
