Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced the release of Vegas Vacation onto Blu-ray this May. The film was directed by Stephen Kessler and stars Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Randy Quaid, Ethan Embry, Wayne Newton, and Wallace Shawn. Vegas Vacation will be available online and in stores on May 21st.
When Clark Griswold puts his mind to something, we soon realize he hasn’t got one. Still, nothing stops him when the vacation bug hits. This time, he’s chosen Las Vegas, the new family entertainment capital of America. Chase returns as bubbly, bumbling Clark in Vegas Vacation, a jokers-are-wild laugh fest including two other stars from past Vacations. D’Angelo is back as wife Ellen, doting on the guy she calls “Sparky,” and Quaid again delights as grubby goof ball Cousin Eddie. Embry and screen-debuting Marisol Nichols are the Griswold teens who love the round-the-clock nightlife, as long as they don’t share it with Mom and Dad! From Seigfried and Roy’s extravaganza to a Hoover Dam tour, from cruising to losing (Shawn as a shifty blackjack dealer) to amorous crooning (Newton falls for Ellen), watch Clark try to keep family and wallet together.
Vegas Vacation was released in February of 1997 and grossed over $36 million at the box office. It was the fourth film in the Vacation franchise, and the last film to date to feature Chase and D’Angelo as the Griswolds.
The Blu-ray edition of Vegas Vacation features a DTS-HD Master Audio mix but no special features.
