National Lampoon's Vacation (1983): The inept but sincere Clark W. Griswold (Chevy Chase) takes misfortune in his stride. So what if they lose all their money when their new car gets wrecked? And it's not too bad when Cousin Eddie (Randy Quaid) deposits sour Aunt Edna (Imogene Coca) in their back seat for a lift to Phoenix. But what really keeps Clark's eyes on the road is a flirtation with a mysterious blonde (Christie Brinkley) in a red Ferrari... ; ; National Lampoon's European Vacation (1985 ): Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo return as Clark and Ellen winners of a European tour on which their teenagers Rusty (Jason Lively) and Audrey (Dana Hill) join them. Deluxe accommodations...aren't. Clark tries left-sided English driving leaving Stonehenge unhinged. In Bavariaia slap-dancing polka turns into a slaphappy free-for-all. It's holiday road havoc for the Griswalds - and your high road to hilarity! ; ; National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989): The Griswolds' Christmas holiday is anything but an occasion for peace on earth and there's certainly not much goodwill to spare when the rest of the repulsive family arrive for a spot of rejoicing. The third in the series is one of the best - who hasn't lived through the horror of hanging the Christmas lights and then spending hours looking for the one bulb that's broken? ; ; National Lampoon's Vegas Vacation (1997): This time the Griswolds are on a roll! ; ; Chevy Chase returns as bubbly bumbling Clark in Vegas Vacation a jokers-are-wild laughfest including two other stars from past Vacations. Beverly D'Angelo is back as wife Ellen doting on the guy she calls "Sparky" and Randy Quaid again delights as grubby goofball Cousin Eddie. Ethan Embry and screen-debuting Marisol Nichols are Griswold teens who love the round-the-clock nightlife as long as they don't share it with mum and dad! ; ; From Siegfried and Roy's extravaganza to a Hoover dam tour from cruising to losing (Wallace Shawn as a shifty blackjack dealer) to amorous crooning (Wayne Newton falls for Ellen): watch Clark try to keep family and wallet together!
