About the Movie

Director Amy Heckerling ("Clueless," "Look Who's Talking") brings America's favorite family back again in the sequel to one of the most successful comedies of all time. This box-office smash takes you along on the Griswald family's wacky misadventures through Europe. Joining the always hysterical Chevy Chase ("Caddyshack," "Fletch," "Three Amigos") are Beverly D'Angelo ("Maid to Order") as his wife, Dana Hill ("Shoot the Moon") as his homesick daughter and Jason Lively, living up to his name, as his sex-crazed son. Screenplay by John Hughes ("Home Alone" films), Robert Klane ("Unfaithfully Yours") and Monty Python alumn Eric Idle ("Casper").

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: While it's very much a retread, it succeeds in following up the first film's humor with more in a similar vein. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 22, 2015

Rotten: Graceless and only intermittently lit up by lunacy and satire. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 22, 2015

Greatest Vacation Movie of All

This is the greatest movie in the Vacation series. Totally amazing. Definitely not appropriate for some younger audiences, but beyond hilarious.

I say buy it!!

The review below is rubish. This movie is a classic! One of chevy chase's greatest performances. "he make pork her Russ" is worth the $9.99 alone. BUY IT NOW. :-)

Best of the Vacations

This was the first movie with full nudity that I had ever seen, so those two scenes were the only ones where I was not laughing out loud because I was in shock. Other than that this is a very very funny movie, but if you're twelve like me stick to the last two.
