Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
"I want to write, I want to paint, I got a romantic urge!"
- Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) in Paris
It must have been fun for the film's makers to work in London, Paris, Rome and Southern Germany, but their fun didn't get exported to us. Full Review
Copley News Service
While it's very much a retread, it succeeds in following up the first film's humor with more in a similar vein.
New York Times
Rating: 4/10 -- Awkward and unamusing and ridiculous in the bad way. Full Review
Antagony & Ecstasy
Rating: 4/5 -- Another great Vacation movie. Typical dumb tourist antics in Eurpoe, and it still works.
The best thing in the movie is the catchy theme from the last "Vacation," which, unfortunately, hasn't the slightest thing to do with Europe. Full Review
Rating: 0/5 -- The lowest point on Chevy Chase's career.
Your Movies (cleveland.com)
Rating: 4/10 -- ...the film is about as brainless as the Griswalds themselves. Full Review
The hapless Griswolds win a trip to Europe on a game show, and hurl towards the world's grandest cities like a wrecking ball.
Europe ... get ready! The Griswolds are back on vacation, and heading your way. In this first sequel to the 1983 film "National Lampoon's Vacation," the Griswolds win a trip to Europe, so off they go to see the sights of London, Paris, Italy and Germany, but there's no place like home, and they sure are glad to return to the good old USA.
