Second Opinion – Vacation (2015)

20 August 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Vacation, 2015.

Written and Directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein.

Starring Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, Leslie Mann, Chris Hemsworth, Skyler Gisondo, Steele Stebbins, Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Charlie Day, and Michael Pena.

Synopsis:

Rusty Griswold takes his own family on a road trip to “Walley World” in order to spice things up with his wife and reconnect with his sons.

In order to discuss the faults found within Vacation, the frankly unneeded rehash of what even 20 years ago felt tired, we need to first come to terms with the current state of American comedy. Over at Every Frame a Painting  Tony Szhou studies Edgar Wright’s use of framing, camera movement and music to further enhance comedy. Even those at the very top of the American comic food chain – Adam McKay, Judd Apatow and (to a far lesser extent) Adam Sandler – succeed in the creation of jokes »

Vacation Review: “Big on laughs, but lacks heart”

20 August 2015 12:28 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Vacation review: “Strips away the atmosphere and heart of the original and fills in the blanks with dick and fart jokes…” Vacation review

For those in the know, the 1983 Vacation is a true comedy classic; the excellent writer/director team of John Hughes and Harold Ramis with Chevy Chase at the top of his game, effortlessly spoofing the sincere and absurd moments of the average American family holiday. Sadly the sands of time have pretty much buried the film and so the producers of Wedding Crashers and We’re the Millers saw fit to dust off the Griswolds for a new generation. The question is; does this belated sequel have the spark of it’s forbearer?

Hoping for some much needed family bonding and to re-live his happiest summer vacation, down-trodden nice guy Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) surprises his wife Debbie (Christina Applegate) and their two sons with a cross-country »

Movie Review – Vacation (2015)

18 August 2015 3:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Vacation, 2015.

Written and Directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein.

Starring Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, Leslie Mann, Chris Hemsworth, Skyler Gisondo, Steele Stebbins, Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Charlie Day, and Michael Pena.

Synopsis:

The Griswold’s drives cross-country to Walley World in this inspired reboot of the 1983 original so Rusty reconnect with his family.

It’s important to note this film is a continuation of the National Lampoon’s Vacation series as Ed Helms takes the role as Rusty Griswold, the fourth actor to do so, and is now a father of his own. The inspiration for this Griswold to take this eerily similar trip, which the film explicitly notes the technical difference that this trip will have two sons and not a son-daughter duo, is identical to the original – for the family to be closer together in a cramped space. Ed, now portraying Rusty as the patriarch, »

Vacation disappoints at the Us box office with just $14.8 million

3 August 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It hasn’t had the best time with reviews (read our review here), but tracking for the reboot/sequel to National Lampoon’s Vacation was looking to be quite promising. The movie had a three-day release prior to its opening weekend, but it still couldn’t bring in the big bucks.

Shown in just over 3,400 screens in the Us, Vacation only managed to bring in $14.8 million. With the extra day’s takings, the movie currently sits at $21.2 million domestically, which has to be seen as a disappointment for Warner Bros. who had expected a huge opening for the movie. It didn’t help that Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation took a whopping $56 million.

It’s not all bad news. Vacation is yet to open in any other markets and its reported budget was $35 million, so it will likely make its money back as early as next weekend.

'Mission: Impossible 5' Takes Top Box Office Spot with $56M

2 August 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Paramount's Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation took the box office by storm this weekend, taking in an estimated $56 million for an easy win over New Line's comedy remake Vacation. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation took in an impressive $14,156 per-screen average from 3,956 theaters this weekend, propelling it to victory over Vacation, which took in just $14.8 million in its first weekend in theaters. The opening weekend tally is the second highest for the action-packed franchise, behind Mission: Impossible 2's $57.8 million opening weekend back in 2000.

The opening weekend take is also the third-highest opening weekend for star Tom Cruise, behind War of the Worlds ($64.9 million) and Mission: Impossible 2. Over 85% of the audience were over the age of 25, setting up an interesting showdown next weekend with 20th Century Fox's superhero movie, Fantastic Four, which is tracking very well with males under the age of 25. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation was released in 369 IMAX theaters this weekend, »

Movie Review – Vacation (2015)

31 July 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Vacation. 2015

Written and Directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein.

Starring Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, Leslie Mann, Chris Hemsworth, Skyler Gisondo, Steele Stebbins, Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Charlie Day, and Michael Pena.

Synopsis:

Rusty Griswold takes his own family on a road trip to “Walley World” in order to spice things up with his wife and reconnect with his sons.

It isn’t very encouraging when the opening credits of a comedy highlight butt cracks and enlarged horse penises during a montage of postcard photographs, but at least it was a sign to set expectations very low for this sequel/reboot of National Lampoon’s Vacation, now shortened down to simply Vacation. It’s a shame because the movie has a good amount of laughs, but the problem is that it consistently transitions to unfunny scenes featuring an over-reliance on gross-out humor and lazy writing.

Vacation Review

29 July 2015 8:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Vacation – another discombobulated assortment of immaturity, nostalgic pandering and weightless storytelling. The slow death of mainstream comedy, if you will. Every stupid graffitied phallus and perverse lake of shit is calculated with the cheapest of intentions, because juvenile potty humor seems to have become an underwhelming norm across comedy’s repetitive landscape. John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein promise early on that their unwarranted reboot will stand completely on its own (through yet Another meta-laced conversation), but their efforts are less convincing than Randy Quaid’s fake sex tape. Why? Because No Vacation movie has treated its audience with this little respect. And Vegas Vacation is nothing to brag about, I might add.

In this year’s vacation-from-hell comedy, Rusty Griswold has transformed from a tall, lanky nutcase (played most recently by Ethan Embry) to his All-American-Joe fate as an economy airline pilot (played now by Ed Helms »

Vacation Review Roundup: A "Depressing Remake" or "Raucous Delight"?

29 July 2015 12:21 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Judging from most of these reviews, you might need to take a trip of your own after seeing Vacation.  In the National Lampoon's Vacation remake, the Griswold clan—now headed by Ed Helms and Christina Applegate—take a page out of Chevy Chase's playbook and embark on a cross-country adventure with their two sons, played by Skyler Gisondo and Steele Stebbins, to family fun amusement park Wally World. But just as any Griswold family voyage goes, the trip is far from smooth sailing. Enter ridiculous antics: including (but not limited to) Chris Hemsworth's particularly long schlong, a fiery car wreck and a hot-tubbing experience in raw sewage.  Vacation is rated R »

Vacation (2015) – The Review

29 July 2015 7:52 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Oh, can ya’ hear it? That infectious, steady beat emanating from your local multiplex’s state of the art speakers? Is that Lindsay Buckingham imploring you to join him and cruise down the “Holiday Road”? Why of course it is! It’s time again to load up and head out on another Vacation! Oh, but hold up, this isn’t just another excursion, we’re about to switch lanes and take a different route, via the “sequel/reboot highway”. First, lets; a take a glance at our rearview mirror. In the late seventies, the National Lampoon magazine (the counter-culture’s humor monthly of choice) ran a terrific prose article called “Vacation 58″ written by freelancer John Hughes (yes, the future “Brat Pack” patron saint). Jump to 1978 when the mag exploded into movie houses with the smash National Lampoon’S Animal House. The studios desperately wanted more hit flicks from Nl. Unfortunately »

A ‘Vacation’ in Hell

29 July 2015 12:06 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Vacation

Written & Directed by Jonathan M. Goldstein & John Francis Daley

USA, 2015

It’s taken almost seven months, but one movie has finally emerged from the dreary pack as the worst of 2015. That film is Vacation, and it’s absolutely dreadful. Writer-directors Jonathan M. Goldstein and John Francis Daley have created something so loathsome that each ticket sold should include a complementary shower. Desperate, hateful, and stridently unfunny, this vacation in Hell bypasses ‘lowest common denominator’ and plummets straight to zero. If you miss one movie this summer, make that movie Vacation.

The original National Lampoon’s Vacation and subsequent ‘80s sequels (let’s just forget Vegas Vacation, shall we?) perfectly straddled the fine line between buffoonery and sincerity. We followed the hapless exploits of super-father Clark Griswold in his unending quest to achieve familial perfection. We cringed at his failures and rejoiced with each fleeting victory. He was the satirical »

Review: 'Vacation' runs out of gas long before it reaches its destination

28 July 2015 3:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

1983's "National Lampoon's Vacation" is a film I have an enormous fondness for, and I have no doubt part of why I feel that way is because of when I saw the film. After all, I was 13 when it came out, and the script by John Hughes felt like it was shockingly transgressive at the time. A few weeks back, I saw the film again for the first time in a while, and while I smiled at most of the familiar scenes and lines, I also saw the film with fresh eyes, and I was struck by the fact that, overall, it's a little shabby. I think Harold Ramis gets great performances out of his entire cast, but as actual filmmaking? It's a step forward from the "held together with bitter tears and cocaine" aesthetic of "Caddyshack," but not a giant step. As an overall series, this is about as »
