    Why, if Chase is such a funny guy, does he make such unfunny movies? show more

    Chase, like his Vacation movies, are things of the past. This is a series that should have died with the '80s. Instead, inexplicably, it has limped on into the '90s. show more

    The Griswalds drive to Las Vegas "because half the fun is getting there," but the fun never begins in this disappointing sequel to the Vacation slapstick comedies. show more

    It was the worst movie in the National Lampoon series. The story was horrible. The acting was OK. But Chevy Chase was still hillarious and he always will. This movie is definitely a skip it.
