In the wide world of comedy, only a few franchises can claim to be the best.

While there have been many singular successful comedy movies, most great comedies have received at least one sequel, if not multiple follow-up movies. Unfortunately, not all comedy movie sequels have lived up to their predecessor or reached the original's success.

Although there have been a lot of disappointing comedy sequels, many of them are beloved by fans and have still had financial success. However, the comedy genre is often overlooked when it comes to critical reception, and very few are considered award-worthy. Regardless, some of the greatest film franchises of all time come from the world of comedy.

National Lampoon's Vacation hit theaters in 1983 and followed a young family as they traveled across the country to a fictional amusement park. The family's father was played by Chevy Chase, an original cast member of Saturday Night Live and star of one of the best comedies of all time, Caddyshack. Chase and his on-screen family run through several hilarious problems throughout the film, which would also be a theme of the sequels.

The first Vacation movie made $60 million and would spawn sequels titled European Vacation, Christmas Vacation, and Vegas Vacation. Chase and on-screen wife Beverly D'Angelo would cameo in the disappointing reboot, Vacation, in 2016.
