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.
The 4 corners monument is under the Navajo Nation and therefore the police that would respond would have been Navajo police and not state troopers from all 4 states. Also the monument can be accessed by Colorado and New Mexico fairly easily by state troopers in the movie without going into each others state. Utah can access it with a 4x4, but it is highly unlikely any vehicle could access the Arizona part without going through New Mexico and then back into Arizona to be at the Arizona entrance. The New Mexican patrol would have stopped him as in the movie none of them got along and were very territorial and therefore they couldn't have all arrived at the same time. See more »
I'm a HUGE Vacation fan...and went to see this new one fresh except for the trailers. Let me say this upfront....It's very funny, BUT, it's also very raunchy. I have a high tolerance for that, and still found myself cringing a few times. Funny that there was an "older" couple behind me in the theater, with their teen "kids/grand-kids". They were laughing HARD the first few minutes, then the lady says "this is too much" and they almost left...but she said "no, it's funny". They stayed all the way and we're laughing most of the whole way. BUT it is uncomfortable at times. Still, it was VERY funny.
So, I went home and re-watched the original. It was pretty dark, and filthy at times too. Just a little more "inside joke" than in your face like the new one. But anyone that says the original was not cutting edge...watch it again. Plenty of cursing, animal abuse, sex, and shenanigans. It actually holds fairly true, given the 30 years. Oh, and Chevy Rocks in his part. Still great comedic timing.
