Vacation (1983)
Hughes wrote the film that defined family vacations for an entire generation. It sparked two beloved sequels—European Vacation and Christmas Vacation—but the original holds a special place for anyone who spent their summers trapped in the backseat of a station wagon. When we see Christie Brinkley on the cover of a magazine, a picnic basket full of soggy sandwiches or an animatronic moose, we're reminded that no matter how many roadblocks we encounter in the quest for family fun, at least we weren't born a Griswold.
