I wish that people would stop reviewing the actual movies on Amazon and review the technical qualities of the product (the DVD) only. There are other places on the web to give movie reviews (IMDB for example). I bought this DVD because it was cheap, had two great movies on one disc, and didn't mind paying less money for the DVD version of these movies as opposed to paying more money for the Blu-ray versions. I knew that I wasn't going to get hi-def, Blu-ray quality copies of these movies by getting the DVD but the image quality on this DVD is severely lacking. The picture quality is not sharp and is fuzzy at times and there are a lot of film scratches and blemishes visable in the images. It's as though I bought VHS-quality versions of these movies to play on my DVD player. 2 stars only because this thing was only $6. But even at $6 it's a bit of a rip off.
I believe this DVD was meant for sale in Canada as the DVD cover is labeled as such.
This is the funniest of the vacation movies. It is laugh out loud! It has to rank with the top 10 funniest movies ever. You get to see four European countries in a humorous light. Plus you get the original Vacation to Wally World which is also full of laughs and the young Christie Brinkley.
THIS DOUBLE SET WAS ADVERTISED AS A 2 DISC SET ON AMAZON, AND CAME AS A SINGLE DISC WITH THE MOVIES ON BOTH SIDES. ALSO IT LOOKS LIKE THIS WAS TAPED RIGHT FROM THE OLDER VHS TAPES AS YOU CAN SEE LINES THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH TAPES. I AM GOING TO BUY THE SINGLE DISC OF BOTH MOVIES, AND MAKE SURE THEY SAY DIGITALLY REMASTERED, AS THESE WERE NOT. THIS COPY IS GOING TO MY GRANDKIDS FOR X-MAS.
This was a very funny DVD. My daughter had not seen any of the Griswold family adventures and she really got a kick out of them. I believe these are two of their funniest adventures and would recommend them to anyone looking for a light-hearted laugh. Check it out.
