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.
Seriously, if everyone would just chill tfo about wanting to compare this version with the original version, you would find this movie is hilarious. First time in years I didn't want to punch Ed Helms in the face after watching him in a movie. The two actors who play the boys in the movie are great. But the gem and queen of this movie is Christina Applegate.
All in all, a really funny movie, a lot better than internet trolls have shown it. I just hope the 100 million worldwide gross will generate a remake of Xmas Vacation.
I will admit that Chris Hemsworth, Charlie Day, Kaitlyn Olson, Michael Pena, Nick Kroll, either Key or Peele, are great in their own small role way. However, this movie does not provide the Cousin Ed role made famous by Canadian truffle sniffer Randy Quaid.
