National Lampoon's Vacation/National Lampoon's European Vac (DVD) (DBFE)
Everything is planned, everything is packed, everything will go hilariously wrong: The Griswolds are going on vacation! In the trend-setting original National Lampoon's Vacation [Side A], Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) is at the wheel of the station wagon, headed for 2,640 miles of forced family togetherness as the Griswolds (with Aunt Edna on the roof!) motor to Wally World. The superb cast includes John Candy as an officious security guard, and Randy Quaid as crude Cousin Eddie - with friends like these, who needs enemies? The theme park may have (somehow) survived, but Stonehenge becomes unhinged when Clark next leads the family across the pond in National Lampoon's European Vacation [Side B]. Go ahead, take a Vacation.

There was some concern that this DVD may not be in widesreen format but it cetainly is. Both movies are in beautful 1.85:1 aspect ratio. They both have a lot of extras and it seems the original 1983 Vacation here has all of the features of the Special Edition PLUS European Vacation as a bonus for the same price? Even though European Vacation is really an inferior sequel, why not have it if you get for free?
I wish that people would stop reviewing the actual movies on Amazon and review the technical qualities of the product (the DVD) only. There are other places on the web to give movie reviews (IMDB for example). I bought this DVD because it was cheap, had two great movies on one disc, and didn't mind paying less money for the DVD version of these movies as opposed to paying more money for the Blu-ray versions. I knew that I wasn't going to get hi-def, Blu-ray quality copies of these movies by getting the DVD but the image quality on this DVD is severely lacking. The picture quality is not sharp and is fuzzy at times and there are a lot of film scratches and blemishes visable in the images. It's as though I bought VHS-quality versions of these movies to play on my DVD player. 2 stars only because this thing was only $6. But even at $6 it's a bit of a rip off.
I believe this DVD was meant for sale in Canada as the DVD cover is labeled as such.
Two classic 80s movies in all their original glory. I was a bit worried that European Vacation would be the "TBS version," but it's all there. Yay!
