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.
Really scraping the bottom of the barrel here, as supposed Rusty Griswald attempts to bring his family together by locking them together in a car for a week, and remaking his original trip to Hell, aka Wally World.
A variety of gross-out gags follow, each more tasteless (and therefore more boring) than the one before it, as the family is followed by a seemingly obsessed truckie, goes swimming in an open sewer, and, in a pointless vignette, visit supposed Audrey and her husband on a lavish farmhouse- and while this audience member wondered why Rusty has become even more stupid than Chase was in the first film.
Subplot involving son's romance with a cute girl traveller was potentially amusing, but her character disappears after only a couple of scenes. The youngest son needed to be tasered, he was such an obnoxious twit; completely irredeeming character.
Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo's characters put in brief cameos in the film's penultimate scene, as does the Wagon Queen Family Trickster, looking as grotesque as ever, in this far too self aware rehash/ reboot.
Seemingly every other scene's climax was given away in the two trailers, which made me feel as though I had already watched the film before.
I give this film a 3/ 10, one point for each time I chuckled during this film's seemingly never ending run-time.
