It's a Very Raunchy/Crude Vacation film meets We're the Millers, Hilarious!
31 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

I thought this movie was the most fun and most funniest I've seen in a while at the movies. I saw this Opening Night and I was very skeptic and worried because I loved the trailers but I've seen other comedies in the past were the trailers were so funny but the movie overall wasn't funny and was so disappointing. The story follows Rusty Griswold as he takes his family on a road-trip vacation to Walley World because he went there when he was a kid with his family and he wants to reconnect with his family and spice things up with his Wife. I thought this was the funniest movie I have seen since The Wedding Ringer, which came out in January of this year. I'm a big Vacation films fan and I was so excited about the son taking over Clark's place and Ed Helms succeeded big time as Rusty Griswold. It was great seeing Christina Applegate in this film as Rusty's wife and as well of course seeing Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo return. It was also surprising to see Leslie Mann as Audrey, Rusty's Sister, Chris Hemsworth as her Husband and nice seeing a few surprising people appear. The kids in the movie did a great job but the small kid needed his mouth cleaned out, he used a lot of language in the film. The story was so relate-able and was so much fun to see and watch. This Vacation movie also reminded me as well of the 2013 Hit-Summer road trip comedy "We're the Millers" which I also loved. Parents should not bring their Teenagers and their young kids, this is not appropriate for teens under 17 because of the constant language, some nudity and the raunchy/crude sexual humor/situations. There was moments in the film where it was awkward and sorta uncomfortable but it was a good, fun, funny movie. There has been so many bad reviews, complaints for this movie since it's been filming, it's not a remake or a reboot people, it's basically a continuation after "Vegas Vacation." There was maybe one or two slow parts in the movie but besides that, I loved this movie. If you want to go see this and have a good, fun time, this is the movie to come to, don't come to this movie very serious and expecting it not to be funny because trust me, it's hilarious. I'm going to see it again in a few days and I can't wait to watch it again. Vacation deserves a lot more praise because it's such a funny, funny movie and it's probably this years "We're the Millers." Hilarious, fun movie!!!!!
