National Lampoon’s European Vacation

This will never be as good as the first Vacation movie (”don’t know why they call it ‘Hamburger Helper,’ does just fine by itself”), and it always bugged me that they changed the kids – and I didn’t like the replacements – but I had fun watching this. It’s ridiculous, filled with hits and misses when it comes to the jokes, but I watched it so many times when I was a kid that I enjoyed seeing those “classic” scenes again.
