Best in Show was a hilarious, underrated "mockumentary" but Vacation is just way too much of a classic to not give it the nod.

I still sometimes proclaim that we're going to Wally World when I go on a trip (or that's just what I call Wal-Mart).

I've never seen Best in Show. It's been on my list awhile. Have to go with Vacation by default. ;-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

These early matchups are difficult. I loved both of these, but had to go with the classic.

Best in Show. I think the later Chevy Chase oeuvre really colored my view of the guy. I have trouble laughing at Vacation now because of the disaster the guy has become.

I do think it's funny, though, what was written on the side of his car as he drove out of East Saint Louis. Does anyone else remember what that phrase was?
