National Lampoon's Vegas Vacation
release year:1997 genre:comedy viewing setting:home laserdisc, 7/11/97 what I expected:more zaniness in the style of the first Vacation movie what I got:evidence that this series has just about been milked dry
synopsis:The ultimate family-man dork, Clark Griswold, is taking his family on another vacation...this time to Vegas.
impressions:This had some funny moments (particularly Rusty's alter-ego, Mr. Papagiorgio) but suffered from the presence of people like Randy Quaid.
acting:Chevy Chase tries, but there's only so much he can do with this role after three previous movies. Ditto for Beverly D'Angelo. I don't care for Wayne Newton, so I won't mention his role.
final word:Watchable, but probably not more than once.
