Original, Xmas, Vegas, European

I am pretty sure that is the order, although I know many people who have a thing for Xmas vacation and probably would put that first.

Even boobies in European couldn't help that one.

Also was amused that a few years after the Vegas movie, real casino's actually started doing "War" as a Casino game. Still waiting for "Pick a number" tho.

Holy crap, Beverly D'Angelo has aged well. By which I mean hardly at all.

I still would.

I got a good chuckle myself the first time I saw "War" in an actual casino.

I'd swap Vegas and Euro. Euro had boobies and a good quotable gag in the "Big Ben, Parliment..." bit (and really nothing else). The only chuckle-worthy part of Vegas was the "pick a number" bit. So Euro wins by a boobie.

Yeah, I put it first because my family watches it every year. We thought it had better quotes, and we're movie quoting people. It's not like they're not interchangeable though. Both are great comedies.

Roll em up.

I like Xmas vacation better than Vegas vacation but it's close.

The Blackjack dealer had some good lines that helped that movie.

"What can I do with $5?"
"I don't know, buy a bullet and rent a gun?"

"You don't know when to quit, do ya Griswold? Here's an idea: Why don't you give me half the money you were gonna bet, then we'll go out back, I'll kick you in the nuts, and we'll call it a day!"

The original was still the best, and European Vacation is best forgotten IMO :)

odd bit of censoring. as if doing such things with the teacher is less bad than doing the same with the dad.

IMHO Christmas Vacation wins just for "Hallelujah! Holy shiat! Where's the Tylenol?"

/Use that every year at some family gathering.

Beverly D'Angelo.

Wow.

Just Wow.
 
2012-10-05 12:39:51 PM  
My kids and I have watched "Christmas Vacation" as our family holiday thing ever since they were small. Started out with the cut-for-TV version on TBS, then the slightly less censored cable version, and finally the full-fledged DVD. And Christmas dinner is always saluted with "Halleluja, holy shiate."
 
2012-10-05 12:54:51 PM  
European Vacation did have those Eric Idle scenes, though.

A Drive-In is where you go to make out with your girlfriend in private and catch just enough of the movie to tell your parents what you saw. Also a Drive-In plays 2 movies back to back so you can get around curfew issues.

My mom took a bunch of us to see 'European Vacation' and I don't think she was expecting the boobs. It was a little awkward afterwards.

But the one gag at the end on the plane still makes me laugh.

Flight attendant: "Something to drink?"
Clark: "I'll have a Coke."
FA: "In the can?"
Clark glances back towards the bathroom.
"No... I'll just have it right here."
 
2012-10-05 02:22:43 PM  
I'm gonna give European Vacation some love as well.

Rusty: Dad he's grabbing her tits right there at the table!
Clark: Just eat your breakfast, Russ.
Rusty: Dad, I think he's gonna pork her.
Clark: He's not gonna pork her, Russ.
Rusty: I think he's gonna.
Clark: He may pork her, finish your breakfast.

European had more quotable lines than any of them.

"Hey Dad, I think he's gonna pork her!"
"What do you wanna watch? Cheese or snow?"
"God I miss Jack."
"We're looking for sex. That'll do Audrey."

I could go on.

Wow, that one flew completely under the radar to me... although, it would be considered really as much of a "sequel" as all of those Direct to Video "American Pie" "sequels" whose only link to the main franchise was the title and a 2 minute cameo by Eugene Levy.

Favorite quote from Christmas Vacation

Ruby Sue: Rocky bit my thumb. Him's nervous.
Clark: Nervous or excited?
Ruby Sue: shiattin' bricks.
Clark: You shouldn't use that word.
Ruby Sue: Sorry. shiattin' rocks

And I, for one, would like to personally thank Beverly for all the topless shots in her career.

shivashakti: Wow, that's Anthony Michael Hall??
He looks.... large. Definitely not someone whose buttcheeks would be taped together.


He lifted weights like crazy after his teen movie years, then became a raging alcoholic for a while. He was pretty filled out during the entire run of his TV series "The Dead Zone." Not fat, just thicker than he used to be.

RatBomb: European Vacation did have those Eric Idle scenes, though.


That is a positive.

Also, D'Angelo singing Big Spender.
