Vegas Vacation

 (1997)

Vegas Vacation Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

At work, Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) has invented a long life food preservative, earning him a large bonus check. Clark announces to his family that he is taking them on vacation. Enthusiasm wanes, however, when Clark says they are headed to Las Vegas, Nevada. His wife, Ellen (Beverly D'Angelo), and teenage daughter, Audrey (Marisol Nichols) have their doubts, as Las Vegas is not known for its family-friendly atmosphere, while teenage son Rusty (Ethan Embry) appears to be more eager. Will everything go smoothly? Don't bet the house.

For more about Vegas Vacation and the Vegas Vacation Blu-ray release, see Vegas Vacation Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Director: Stephen Kessler
Writer: Bob Ducsay

Vegas Vacation Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

I'm always fascinated when a world-class cinematographer shows up in the credits of a turkey, but producer Jerry Weintraub has a knack for recruiting talent. William A. Fraker—six-time Oscar nominee, past president of the American Society of Cinematographers, the DP of such films as Rosemary's Baby, Bullitt and 1941 and, three years after this film, a recipient of the ASC's Lifetime Achievement Award—shot Vegas Vacation with his usual unobtrusive professionalism. Fraker's work is ably represented on Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray, which is detailed, fine-grained and colorful. Whether photographing the casino interiors, the desert exteriors near Cousin Eddie's trailer, the elaborate shows by Wayne Newton and Siegfried and Roy, or Newton's equally elaborate home (shot in the real location), Fraker lights for a "natural look", trusting in Vegas itself to supply the requisite sense of artificiality. Black levels and contrast appear to be spot on, and there is no indication of inappropriate digital filtering, artificial sharpening or other untoward manipulation. The film is short enough to compress easily onto a BD-25 without artifacts. If you're a fan of Vegas Vacation, this presentation should be just what you're after.


Vegas Vacation Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The film's original 5.1 track is encoded as lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1, and anyone who thinks that 5.1 makes no difference in a comedy should hear this track. (If only it accompanied a better film.) The original score by Joel McNeely (a frequent Disney composer) and the pastiche of Vegas-themed tunes assembled by the music department have been effectively spread across the front soundstage and into the surrounds so that they seem to wrap around the listening space. The swinging, brassy arrangements keep dangling the promise of the fantasy Vegas that everyone imagines from Rat Pack movies (and that Rusty actually manages to live for a brief time), while Clark keeps colliding with the reality that you lose your shirt and the beautiful women flock to the high rollers, not to middle-aged family men.

The dialogue is clear (but unfortunately still not funny), and appropriate sound effects occasionally issue from the rear speakers at appropriate moments. The trip to Hoover Dam provides a few good opportunities. Bass extension is adequate, though rarely used.
