National Lampoon's Vacation

 (1983)

Screenshots from another edition of National Lampoon's Vacation Blu-ray

The Griswolds have planned all year for a great summer vacation. From their suburban Chicago home, across America, to the wonders of the Walley World fun park in California, every step of the way has been carefully plotted. So what if they lose all their money when their new car gets wrecked. And it's not too bad when Cousin Eddie deposits sour Aunt Edna in their back seat for a lift to Phoenix. But what really keeps Clark's eyes on the road is a flirtation with a mysterious blonde in a red Ferrari.

For more about National Lampoon's Vacation and the National Lampoon's Vacation Blu-ray release, see National Lampoon's Vacation Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

National Lampoon's Vacation Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5


National Lampoon's Vacation drives onto Blu-ray with a surprisingly steady and good-looking 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer. Warner's Blu-ray delivers a strong color palette; the various hues -- Clark's blue suit, the family's green wagon -- might make viewers cringe in fear at 1980s style and fashion, but at least the transfer appears faithful to the source. Detail, too, is impressive for an aging Comedy; close-ups reveal nicely-realized textures on faces, while clothes sport clean and visible lines. The fabric seats inside the car and other odds and ends found throughout the entire movie appear pleasantly stable and naturally textured, but some background elements -- notably as seen in several distant aerial shots -- appear fuzzy and indistinct. Nevertheless, the image is free of heavy digital manipulation; grain remains intact and aids in the delivery of a pleasing film-like image, and other technical bugaboos rarely factor into the equation. Black levels do devour some image detail in darker scenes, but flesh tones generally remain an honest shade. National Lampoon's Vacation lacks that spit-and-polished veneer of newer movies transfered correctly to Blu-ray, but Warner's presentation does yield a handsome film-like texture that appears faithful to the source. All in all, this is a strong presentation of a classic 1980s Comedy.


National Lampoon's Vacation Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5


National Lampoon's Vacation pulls onto Blu-ray with a stable but sonically inconsequential DTS-HD MA 1.0 lossless soundtrack. Yup, a mere single channel of Vacation fun is all that's here, but that's all that's required to get the family from the Windy City to Disney...er...Walley World in one piece. The track has its moments where it wants for a less mushy presentation, but for the most part, this DTS mix handles the limited material well enough. Obviously, there's little range and no real sense of space to the track, and while superior clarity is almost always lacking, the film's music -- particularly the hit song "Holiday Road" -- enjoys a fair bit of crispness and energy through the limited presentation. Various sound effects, too, could use some more oomph, particularly a gun shot and some roller coaster rattling and rolling heard near the end of the film. Likewise, other, similar elements heard throughout the picture play as suitably focused and sufficiently -- but not at all realistically -- presented. The track is free of any distracting pops or hissing, and dialogue is consistently discernible and nicely balanced. Though they don't come much more basic than this, Vacation's mono soundtrack serves the movie well enough.
