European Vacation (1985) Film Review


Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase), his hot wife Ellen (Beverly D’Angelo), teenage daughter Audrey (Dana Hill) and son Rusty (Jason Lively) win a trip to Europe on a ridiculous game show and it is on; Americans in the eighties travelling.

This is such a classic eighties film. It’s ridiculous and wonderful and oh-so-wrong in a way that totally holds up so well today. Except the fashion – though the clothes they purchase in Italy are magnificent.
