The first film in the Vacation comedy franchise stars Chevy Chase as Clark Griswold, an ad exec who becomes consumed with taking his family cross-country to Wally World, a California amusement park. Less a vacation than a descent into a peculiarly American kind of hell, the Griswolds suffer through an endless series of catastrophes, culminating in a run-in with the law. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

You can't help but laugh at this movie. So many parts to relate to. Vacation will take you away from the daily stress of life into a world of entertaining comedy and adventure. While you don't have to be totally locked into the movie to enjoy, it is worth paying attention for the subtle comical overtones.
This movie, in my opinion is Chevy Chase's funniest performance ever. The movie gets funnier every time you watch it. There is a reason why it spawned so many sequels, none of which are as funny, although Christmas comes close. In my opinion it is the best National Lampoons movie ever. The story is a simple family vacation in which everything goes horribly wrong, but its the way in which Chevy Chases Character (Clark) reacts to what happens that gives you the none stop laughs. If you have never seen it before it is a must, rent it and you won't regret it.
