4.0 out of 5 stars Great, with the exception of Vegas Vacation
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...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, with the exception of Vegas Vacation, 31 Dec 2006

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT COLLECTION TO AN INCREDIBLE SET OF COMEDIES., 21 Oct 2005
By 
Mr. Al Price (London, England) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
Finally at last you have all the National Lampoon movies in one box. Great set of movies National Lampoons Vacation sets the Griswold family across country for a little fun at one of Americans favourite theme parks Wally World. European Vacation takes the whole family across Europe, Christmas Vacation Clark Griswold just wants the best family christmas and finally Vegas Vacation that takes the whole family once again on a fun pack adventure to Las Vegas.
All these movies are classics and each one adorable that they managed to keep you there till the end. Also oddly enough they used different kids through out the characters of Russ and Audlrey.
Great set of movies that no collector should live without.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT COMEDY BOX SET, 25 Oct 2007
These are classic films, with Chevy Chase at his comedy best.

Any father can sympathise with some of the mishaps that befall (Clark) as he takes his family on holiday and later attempts the family Xmas in Christmas Vacation.

These are HILARIOUS films and very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life with the Griswolds, 2 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a classic small collection of the four National Lampoon holiday films, starring Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo. The films span some 14 years, but all (even the much later made Vegas Vacation) are classic Griswald or is that Griswold films. The spelling of the family name changes over the years, while the two children alter from film to film, but Chevy and Beverly are ageless (only outdone by Christie Brinkley who looks exactly the same in film 4 as she did in film 1 fourteen years earlier).

The films are good fun that keep (on giving) you chuckling viewing after viewing. The language used in the early films has disappeared by Vegas Vacation making this more suitable family viewing. You don't have the feeling of watching a film, but rather sharing the adventures and calamities of a non-average American family on vacation.

This is a good priced 4 DVD set, although it is disappointing that the promised Theatrical trailer for Vegas Vacation, outtakes for Christmas vacation and Beverly's commentary on European Vacation are missing. Extra though are a commentary by Chevy Chase on European Vacation and a commentary on Christmas Vacation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious, 3 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: National Lampoon's Vacation Collection [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
As with any genre, you will either love or hate. This film, although not my cup of tea most certainly pleased the gift recipient. So for that alone, it gets a five star. The fact it was delivered in time and in quality is a bonus.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Trip Down Holiday Road!, 18 Dec 2011
By 
This review is from: National Lampoon's Vacation Collection [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
Great boxset with all 4 vacation films, everyone should own a copy of Christmas Vacation-its the best christmas film ever made!
Vacation is great,a comedy classic that stands up to repeat viewing,Clark Griswald is arranging for his family to hit to road and travel across American to Wallyworld and its not the smoothest ride...but its hilarious!
Euopean Vacation is a good sequel(The only way you can get it on Region 2 DVD is in this boxset) where the Griswolds travel Europe and visit London France Italy and Germany.Its a good light hearted easy watch but isnt as good as Vacation.
Vegas Vacation is the fourth and final in the series and is the weakest but still worth a watch and had a couple of great laughs.
Great box-set,great price and worth getting for Christmas Vacation alone :D
