Following the Griswold family's past misadventures on their way to Wally World, National Lampoon's European Vacation (1985) follows its predecessor’s success while watching the Griswold's embark on a trip to Western Europe after the family wins an all-expenses-paid trip in a stereotypically obnoxious game show. Clark and Ellen Griswold (played by Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo, respectively) join with their children (Dana Hill and Jason Lively) into (unwittingly) destroying the monuments and national patrimonies of the Old Continent: from (accidentally) knocking all the Stonehege stones like dominoes and (unknowingly) insulting the Frenchmen with an awkward use of French, to a Bavarian dance that turns into a fight, the Griswolds embody stereotypical "dumb tourist" antics over France, the United Kingdom, (then-) West Germany, and Italy.

In ninety-five minutes, this second installment of the Vacation series lives up to the potential of being funny, engaging, tongue-in-cheek, and politically incorrect, sprinkled with visual gags and humor that only a combination like Chase and D'Angelo can bring to the National Lampoon comedic brand.
