** The 2015 sequel/reboot is getting this reaction too with people who dislike the heavier amounts of crude humor in comparison to the original, and how the film is essentially just a kinda-sorta remake of the original (with one of the film's own trailers lampshading this fact) with much more heavy-handed attempts at humor; highlighted further by the fact the 2015 movie recreates almost shot for shot the famous "flirting with a hot woman on the highway" scene, only this one has her die violently in a head-on collision, making many viewers say "DudeNotFunny"

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: Clark's line about how he'll wake up one day to find the kids are grown up is quite prophetic. Over three more films and fifteen years, the kids kept getting recast to stay roughly the same age, but then suddenly we get an adult Rusty going on his own vacation in the 2015 film.

* HarsherInHindsight: The "they don't close Florida" line might qualify in light of the recent immigration incidents.

** Post-recession, it's rather harder to laugh at Eddie's money troubles.

* DudeNotFunny: Dragging a dog to death just isn't funny. The cop who pulled Clark over for it was especially unamused.
** It ''was'' a horrible dog, at least.
** Well it more the circumstances of it that was funny. Clark was kinda distracted while packing up everything. And you gotta admit the scene with the cop was hilarious.
** At least they only showed the dog's collar. In the short story that the movie was based there is a very graphic description of Dinkie's remains, and he wasn't even a mean dog! Also there's a part where Clark [[spoiler:purposely kills another dog with a revolver.]]
** Averted at one part. It was originally planned for Aunt Edna to [[NotQuiteDead still be alive]] when she was on top of the Griswolds' car. It was [[KilledOffForReal later changed]] when it was considered too mean-spirited.
*** Who's to say she wasn't alive by the time Normy came back?

** Unless whatever happened to make Wally World need the repairs took place after the Griswolds departed or Clark decided to drive them somewhere else.

* ValuesDissonance: The whole sequence in the black neighborhood was pushing things even at the time, and comes off as horrendously racist now (though it's actually ''toned down'' from the equivalent scene in the original short story).
