Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Gusto Films present a Capitol Classic
National Lampoon's Vacation (USA)
Thirty years ago the Griswold Family first took to the road…
The first in the Vacation cult comedy film series, Clarke Griswold (Chevy Chase) and his family hit the road on a cross-country drive to Walley World theme park. Following an endless ream of catastrophes, this holiday proves to be much more laborious than they ever anticipated.
“This is no longer a vacation. It's a quest, a quest for fun. I'm gonna have fun and you’re gonna have fun. We're gonna have so much f *%king fun they're gonna need plastic surgeons to remove the smiles from our f *%king faces. We'll be whistling zippity-doo-dah out of our ass holes.” Clarke Griswold (Chevy Chase)
Screening with short film Chicken of God by Frank Woodley.
