Okay, so this might be a bit of an older reunion (2012), but I needed an excuse to write about the Griswold’s as I’ve had the Vacation theme song stuck in my head all day.
National Lampoon’s Vacation was the smash comedy hit from 1983 directed by the late great Harold Ramis and starring Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Randy Quaid, Dana Barron and a very young Anthony Michael Hall. It centered around a family as they travel across the country on a road trip to Walley World. The film successfully spun off into European Vacation, Christmas Vacation, and Vegas Vacation. There were also some lesser known spinoffs like Christmas Vacation 2 with Cousin Eddie, Hotel Hell Vacation (a digital short) and also rumors about a new flick in the franchise starring Ed Helms.
It’s interesting seeing the cast now-a-days after having aged for 30+ years. Clark is still funny, Audrey is still cute and yeah I probably still would do Helen.
