Overview

National Lampoon celebrates the 25th anniversary of its seminal film National Lampoon's Vacation by finally providing all the destinations that the Griswald clan would have/should have/might have visited.  To some, the ?the road less traveled? is an inconvenience: a pathetic, pot holed, meandering path to oblivion, only reserved for losers who can't afford a $2000 navigation system.  But to National Lampoon, it's pure comedy gold.  Sit back and let National Lampoon do the driving as we take you on ...

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
National Lampoon put zaniness on the map with its cross-country road-trip cinematic extravaganza, National Lampoon's Vacation. Although this Chevy Chase classic doesn't present travel in the most favorable light, the impresarios at NL have decided to mark its 25th anniversary with a "road best left untraveled" guide to America's throbbing heartland. National Lampoon Road Trip USA introduces readers to real places that deserve to be noticed, if not visited. Consider, for example, the statue exhibit at Yorba Linda, California's Richard Nixon Library, where all the "life-size" bronze images of world leaders are vertically challenged, except, surprisingly, the one of R.N. himself.

    I had high hopes for this book and was looking forward to busting a gut laughing at Harmon Leon's misadventures. He couldn't have picked locales that were riper for hilarity than his chosen destinations. Cockfights in Louisiana! The Liberace Museum in Vegas! An Iraq war simulation in Twentynine Palms, CA! The problem with this book is the same one that National Lampoon Magazine had in its later years. It's not funny. It's not even sick. It's just mean, and occasionally stupid. Leon needs to realize that the root of humor is not just finding something or someone to pick on, but to find the humanity in the bizarre. By simply slamming everything he sees, he ruins the opportunity to find some higher truth that leaves us laughing with the people he meets, not simply mocking them. Leon tries to fit in and move amongst those he believes to be the Great Unwashed of America, but it's obvious he's holding himself so far above his subjects that he can't find any humor in the things he sees, only condescension. It's just not funny at all, only kind of sad.
