Basically, this is a commercial of Homeaway.com and what follows is what is trying to be funny. But like all other movies with Chevy Chase, it falls short. Maybe he tries too hard...nope - he definitely tries too hard.
If he wasn't so smug and if the film wasn't trying so hard to live off the old movies, it would be better.
Beverly D'Angelo makes great character, because she is not so forceful in trying to make funny...her off looks, wry smile and silence just make her good.
If you like the other Vacation movies, you will probably view this, but no doubt - you too will be disappointed.
Watch it for Beverly, if for no other reason.
**A note to film makers... Try NOT to burn your characters out with overdone and rehashed stories that just get lame due to repeated misuse.
