So I graduated from playboy to National Lampoon in High school.
I'm in my room in the 70's reading Vacation, and laughing my ass off.
My dad comes in and he's all What's so funny?
I'm like, it's a story I'm reading.
He leaves. I'm in there laughing my ass off.
He comes back.
I want to read that when you're done with it.
He comes back after reading it.
WTF is this shiat? What's the National Lampoon?
I explain, it's what happens to people who go to Harvard and move on to make money, big money, and for kids, it's what they graduate from Playboy to and spend our money on.
He never bucked me again for my reading choices.
When he found out I was going to be a cop, he bought me a copy of The Chiorboys, after reading it him self.
/cool dad, bro.

You know what I didn't enjoy about European Vacation?

1. The film stock used is blurry and looks like shiat, everything's a bit grey and dark.
2. The girl playing Audrey was fat and had one of those hideous pig noses like the clone from Futurama. And her shrill voice. All around, unpleasant casting choice.
3. The sound was a bit muddy. Probably due to all the outdoor scenes.

Saracuda: Loved all the Vacation movies. Even European Vacation. I like the German dancing-fight scene.


That was funny but so was " Hey kids Big Ben!........Parliment!"

The Audrey from EV died from a diabetic coma at age 32 in 1996.

Also, an interesting tidbit from her bio, I guess a "plus" for having stunted growth... more acting jobs...
"Because of her stunted growth, she appeared to be about 12 or 13 years old. She was cast in many teen roles well into her twenties, because as an adult, she was not subject to the strict labor rules a real teenager would be (limited shooting hours, on-set teachers, etc.)"

I remember seeing her in The Fall Guy and there was some scene where she was carded in a bar by a big dude who played Big Dudes in seemingly every tv show in the 80s.
Very sad what happened to her.
Almost makes me feel bad about agreeing that her Audrey wasn't very good. At least, I sure didn't like it when I first saw it.

The first Vacation movie, Top Four Topless scene of the 80s? I think so.

7th Son of a 7th Son: Uncle Pooky: Always thought Dana Barron was very very cute.

Agreed. Her and Alyssa Milano were my preteen crushes.

/goddamn I miss the '80s.


I met her once in 1984, my freshman year in college. Was not impressed. She may be cute but she was introducing herself around as the girl from vacation. People either fawned all over her or there was this stunning awkward moment when no one did. I was there for the latter but she and her friend proceeded onto the next table in the dining hall and the next and the next...

Lsherm: 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.


See that's the trouble with kids today. They never stick to what they started.
