With the success of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation the following year, Funny Farm did eventually gain a cult following and is now regarded by critics and Chevy Chase fans as one of his best films.

The movie was filmed on location in Vermont, mostly in Townshend.

Screenwriter Jeffrey Boam said he "loved" the book. "It was exactly the kind of movie I always wanted to write. It needed a lot of work because it wasn't told in the fashion that could be filmed, but I loved the idea of working with Chevy. He was a comedy hero of mine and still is."
