Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: The Vacation franchise hits rock-bottom in this corny and tepid trip to sinfully laugh-free city.
Todd McCarthy

A tepid fourth entry in the popular 1980s series that is decidedly showing its age.

Lame National Lampoon with usual innuendo, drinking.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that in its the quest for humor and laughs, this film portrays everyone in the Griswold family as irresponsible, amoral, dishonest, and foolish. The Griswold teens either drink, cheat, steal, gamble, or lie throughout. The entire Las Vegas environment is seen as obsessively sensual, tawdry, and alcohol-infused. In fact, many of the leading characters are seen continuously holding or drinking alcoholic beverages. In addition, the film functions as a lengthy commercial for the city's hotels and hot spots, along with lots of other product placement. Language is relatively mild, with some "damns," and "hells." In addition the film teems with sexual innuendo, as well as much leering and ogling at scantily clad women.
