National Lampoon's European Vacation

National Lampoon’s European

National Lampoon’s European Vacation is directed by Amy Heckerling who also directed Clueless and Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Chevy Chase (Clark), Beverly D’ Angelo (Ellen), Jason Lively (Rusty), and Dana Hill (Audrey) are the lead actors.

I have never seen this movie before but I heard a lot of great things about it so of course I had to watch it!

This movie was rated PG-13 when it came out but there is no way is would be rated PG-13 if they re rated the movie today. It has a nude scene!! The movie was produced in 1985.

This movie really represents the 80’s well by showing the way they dress and the size of Clark’s portable camera…. It’s Huge!

This movie is about a dysfunctional family winning a game show where the grand prize is a two week trip to Europe. On the plane you can tell it is going to be a very interesting trip because everyone is expecting different things out of the trip.

As they travel around Europe it seems that they are just oblivious to everything. A hilarious scene in the movie is when they go to see their grandparents in Europe and they end up going to the wrong house and not even realizing it.

This movie is really funny and I STRONGLY recommend it!!
