Some very funny parts
11 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is new generation of the beloved Vacation movies. Of course a 2015 comedy has to be cruder. It's funny more often than not. The Grand Canyon rafting scene is really laugh out loud.

Rusty is now a regional airline pilot. Ed Helms is competent if a bit old. Christina Applegate plays his wife. She is as always very likable and carries off the less funny parts with enough charm to make them bearable. The kids are okay too with the bullying thing. Chris Hemsworth is quite funny and well cast as Rusty's brother in law they drop in to visit on the way to Wally World. Ron Livingston is well cast as an obnoxious pilot. Beverly d'Angelo and a much heavier Chevy Chase make an appearance.

Overall liked the updating, it has enough homage to the older movies and shows the formula still works.
