Life with the Griswolds,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Chevy Chase National Lampoon's Vacation Collection (4 Disc Box Set)  [DVD] (DVD)
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.
