Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss National Lampoon's Vacation. A family gets yelled at by their father in the car during a long car trip across the United States.
Inspired by a John Hughes from National Lampoon magazine, National Lampoon's Vacation takes slapstick, a road trip film, and dysfunctional family dynamics into a solid comedy. Harold Ramis directs his funny comedy that drags a bit towards the end, but a small John Candy part helps round things out.
