After moving his family back to his hometown to be with his friends and their kids, Lenny finds out that between old bullies, new bullies, schizo bus drivers, drunk cops on skis, and four hundred costumed party crashers sometimes crazy follows you.
Trying to bond his family together and relive his childhood memories, Rusty Griswold takes his family to Walley World, an amusement park. On the way they face challenges, overcoming fears, and troubles with mischievous people. When his family admits that they never wanted to go, he starts to think his family thinks he's a loser. Will they make it to Walley World or will the family separate?
When Ed Helms is looking through old family photos, images of all the other films are shown, including the old "Rustys". See more »
Kevin complains that he will miss the first week of wrestling practice when the family goes on vacation Memorial Day weekend. Regularly scheduled wrestling seasons go from mid November until mid March for high school and January until March for middle school. Any club wrestling would have started much earlier than Memorial Day weekend as well. See more »
This isn't a movie for children, obviously since it's rated r, so the idiots saying don't take your kids to see it should be ignored entirely. Things change in the world, movies and television shows aren't going to be the same as they were 30 years ago. Either adapt with the times or stay home and watch something on VHS. It's clearly just a movie so a 10 year old cursing doesn't have to be taken so damn seriously. Ed Helms and Christina Appelgate are great together and I enjoyed their chemistry. They played on a lot of the memorable moments from the originals but also created their own and succeeded in entertaining my friends and I. I always loved the Vacation movies and I still do. This one is definitely a modern take on those movies but like I said it still pays homage to the ones that came before it. If you take movies that seriously then yes don't see it because no one cares if you were offended by a film consisting of fictional characters and events. Otherwise if you're not a snowflake then definitely give this a try!
