Whistlin' Zippity Doo-dah!

Mar 3, 2000
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Hilarious movie!!

Cons:Lots of profanity and innuendo

"National Lampoon's Vacation" is another one of those guilty pleaures. Yes, it's crude, and vulgar, and rude. It's also hilarious. Anyone who has ever taken a family vacation will see something familiar in this movie, exaggerated though it is.

Clark Griswold decides to take his wife and kids to "Walleyworld" for their vacation, and gets the bright idea that it will be more fun to drive than to fly. Yeah, right. Everything that can go wrong does, from having to take horrible old Aunt Edna along to getting lost to ending up nearly penniless. By the time it's all over, Clark is nearly insane, has accidentally killed Aunt Edna's dog, Dinkums, and has managed to destroy his car. Still he perseveres and manages to get the family to Walleyworld(now minus Aunt Edna, who passed away somewhere near Flagstaff.) Unfortunately, Walleyworld is closed for repairs, but Clark, having brought his family this far, is determined to complete his "quest for fun." So he takes matters into his own hands...

This movie is guaranteed to make you laugh out loud. Randy Quaid is perfect as Ellen Griswold's redneck, deadbeat cousin,whose youngest daughter was born without a tongue. But that's all right, he says,because "she whistles like a bird and eats like a horse!" Oh, my...
I know it may be wrong to laugh when Clark ties Aunt Edna's corpse to the roof of the car,or when he tells his family that they're "gonna have so much bleepin' fun that they'll be whistlin' zippity doo-dah out of their...." but I can't help it. This is by no means a movie for children, but it's a riot just the same.
