National Lampoon's Vacation Directed by Harold Ramis

Critics reviews

The original and its 1985 sequel aren’t masterpieces, but they’ve got a coherent badness, especially the first, which Harold Ramis directed, John Hughes wrote, and for which Lindsey Buckingham supplied “Holiday Road,” a perversely catchy, suitably off-kilter theme song. It was trying to be a farce of white middle-class family values.

The comedy is sharp, but the filmmaking is utterly haphazard… Vacation might feel structurally jerry-rigged, but a work of comic wiliness, despite its technical and narrative faults, is far preferable to a pristinely made mediocrity that calls for little more than a complacent grin.
