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

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    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

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    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

    Ken Fox TV Guide

    Chase is a veritable black-hole of mirthlessness who sucks every ounce of fun out what might otherwise be a fairly diverting comedy. show more

    Russell Smith Austin Chronicle

    If you enjoy an occasional taste of mental junk food, you might find Las Vegas Vacation worthy of a springtime dollar-cinema visit. Otherwise, hold out another decade for sexagenarian Chevy in Palm Springs Vacation. show more

    The Griswolds, headed by Chevy Chase, are taking what could be one of their last family vacations. show more

    Todd McCarthy Variety

    Series regulars Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo and Randy Quaid (who joined for "Christmas Vacation") are all back for more, and thank God for Quaid, who injects a few bracing shots of mangy humor into what is otherwise a lukewarm brew. show more

    After a somewhat promising opening, the movie falls flat. show more

    Lawrence Van Gelder The New York Times

    Throughout this lame film, directed by Stephen Kessler and written by Elisa Bell, situations are developed -- complicated directions to a hotel room, Clark clinging to the face of Hoover Dam, Ellen the object of Mr. Newton's seductive charm -- and left to wither without a payoff. show more

    Los Angeles Times

    There is nothing more memorable about Vegas Vacation than the flatness of the writing in Elisa Bell's script and the uninspired direction of first-timer Stephen Kessler. 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.
