There's nothing like a road trip to bring a family together! Clark Griswald (Chevy Chase) wants to spend quality time with his wife and kids, so he packs them all into a station wagon and drives cross-country to "America's Family Fun Park," Wally World. By the time they arrive, the Griswalds have wrecked their car, been swindled by hillbilly relatives, eaten sandwiches soaked with dog urine, and disposed of a dead body. On top of it all, Wally World is closed for repairs. While the family eventually gets a happy ending (after a SWAT-team intervention and a court hearing), you know it's that disastrous trip they'll bond over for years to come. As Clark says, waxing nostalgic: "When I was a boy, just about every summer we'd take a vacation. And you know, in 18 years, we never had fun."
