Hoping to bring his family closer together and to recreate his childhood vacation for his own kids, an adult Rusty Griswold takes his wife and two sons on a cross-country road trip to Walley World. Needless to say, things don't go quite as planned.
Randy Quaid couldn't reprise his role as Cousin Eddie, due to his arrest involving a house payment dispute. Quaid currently lives in Canada. His character does get a mention. See more »
When Rusty enters the cockpit the oxygen masks hanging from the ceiling are used by passengers and flight attendants, not pilots. The pilots oxygen masks are located next to the seats and are larger. See more »
Vacation isn't one of those must see movie blockbusters, and would probably be one of the last choices for anyone to watch for the month.
On the other hand, its much easier to arrange a group movie outing as the chances of everyone watching that is pretty low ;)
The ratings for this particular movie are quite bad(reference Rottentomatoes), which is no surprise as most crude comedies are rated so. It wasn't as crude as I expected it to be though.(then again maybe thats because it was moderated in Singapore)
To sum it up, we went in with low expectations. But! I could hear the hall filled with laughter through-out the movie! and we came out smiling and discussing about the funny parts as well. All in all an enjoyable movie experience :)
Yes, it's not gonna win any awards or sure. but for anyone looking for a light-hearted movie packed with laughter, WATCH THIS! :D I was honestly afraid of drinking my soda for fear of spurting it out from laughter.
