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.
Rotten: Graceless and only intermittently lit up by lunacy and satire.
Rotten: The best thing in the movie is the catchy theme from the last "Vacation," which, unfortunately, hasn't the slightest thing to do with Europe.
not that great
I LOVE Christmas Vacation, so I thought this would be good too. But it really wasn't. It's not that funny, and on top of that it has a lot of things that aren't really fit for children to see. I don't know if I would rent it, but definetely don't buy it.
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. :-)
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.
