National Lampoon's European Vacation

 (1985)

Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo return as Clark and Ellen, winners of a European tour on which their teenagers Rusty (Jason Lively) and Audrey (Dana Hill) join them. Deluxe accommodations... aren't. Clark tries left-sided English Driving, leaving Stonehenge unhinged. In Bavaria a slap-dancing polka turns into a slaphappy free-for-all. It's holiday road havoc for the Griswalds - and your high road to hilarity!

National Lampoon's European Vacation Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5


Warner Brothers brings National Lampoon's European Vacation to Blu-ray with a steady and moderately handsome 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer. Like Vacation, colors tend towards a slightly dulled shade, through brighter hues -- particularly a red car seen near the end of the film -- almost sparkle. Fine object detail is good but far from extraordinary. Faces sport only modest texture, but objects like carpets and towels benefit from the added boost in resolution over standard definition. Distant objects, such as city vistas and clumps of vegetation, lack sharpness. The image features grain throughout, spiking at times but generally remaining visually unobtrusive. Flesh tones are fine, though blacks occasionally lean towards the sloppy. This is a solid but modest image, and it comes about as-expected of a mid-1980s Comedy. Viewers shouldn't expect that fresh-from-theaters sheen, but longtime fans of this film should appreciate what Warner's transfer has done for the film.


National Lampoon's European Vacation Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5


National Lampoon's European Vacation sputters onto Blu-ray with a paltry DTS-HD MA 1.0 mono soundtrack that sounds pretty much the same, if not a bit more cramped and indistinct, as that found on the National Lampoon's Vacation Blu-ray release. This is primarily a dialogue- and music-driven picture. As to the former, it's adequately reproduced, though there are some stretches where characters sound far too shallow and mushy. The picture's music enjoys a bit more heft and clarity; the series' trademark song, "Holiday Road," plays with a fair bit of crispness and accuracy even through the single-channel presentation. Various atmospheric effects do nothing, obviously, to immerse the listener into the picture's several exotic locales, serving instead simply as basic audible reinforcements to whatever visuals they accompany. National Lampoon's European Vacation doesn't suffer for its limited track, but Warner's mono presentation doesn't add much of anything to the experience, either.
