Can the Griswolds survive Europe? Probably better than Europe can survive the Griswolds.The first time the all-American Griswold family ventured forth, in National Lampoon's Vacation, it was just a domestic outing. This time they take on the Continent--all in a catastrophe-filled fortnight--thanks to a TV quiz-show grand prize.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: European Vacation charts a course through a succession of pretty destinations, but the journey itself lacks the laughs that made the original outing so memorable.

Common Sense Says
Funny but extremely crass '80s family comedy.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this comedy is overflowing with sexual references, including innuendo and nudity. Teenagers make out with other teenagers, sometimes in front of their parents. There are several brief, comically-portrayed displays of sexual force (including that of an adult to teen). Language is explicit, though always used humorously. Also, the teenage girl struggles with eating/weight issues that are exaggerated for comic effect.
