Chevy Chase still keeps us laughing in this wonderful boxset of his 'Lampoon' vacation family films, in which he plays the character of Clark Griswold, family of 2 children and a wife, and each film is based a different holiday, from the troubles at home during the christmas season, to touring europe after winning a gameshow. Their are laughs all round, but I still feel the 4th installment, Vegas Vacation, falls terribly short of the previous 3. Chase looks alot older, and the directing is a very much different style to the previous 3, in that with the musical score and silly characters, it feels like more of a mature family film rather than what made the previous 3 so special - immature and adventerous. This 4th installment is pretty predictable along those lines.
But avoiding this, its still worthy of buying, as each DVD seperately still retails around £10 or just under, this definately worth buying to re-live those laughs for many more times round.
