**When the family vacation turns into a nightmare!**
Having not seen any previous films in this series, I had nothing to compare with it and to blame for. Though I have seen many similar films, but it was not as bad as they say. In this kind of theme, the basic storyline always remains same, the remaining parts like the characters, locations and the diversions in the story developments are the key. I think they did that decently, the two new directors who also penned the screenplay.
Well, this is the story of the Griswold family of a couple and their two teen sons. After realising his family is spiritless with the normal life, the husband surprises his wife and the children to go a vacation. The trip is supposed to have fun, but they find hard to come along in a single mood as a family. Meanwhile, their journey begins to face many hurdles, though they are not giving up. So how memorable their adventure becomes is what unfolds in the remaining section.
The cast was good. Both, Ed Helms and Chritina Applegate was impressive, though the film is not laudable. Not all the jokes, but some of them were really cool and most of them were adult stuffs. Yep, this is an R rating film, not a family film, despite the impression you get from its posters. So for the grown ups, this is not a bad film to give a try. I can’t suggest or reject on the merit of its previous installments, because I’ve already given the reason. People like me can definitely have a good time with it.
As one theres has seeing the originals, I have feared it was a complete rip-off, but yes there is many smilarities, but they have actual succefull made a movie with so much fun and new spins.
Ridicoulous, stupid, offensive and dreadful….. would watch again!
Despite the movie is a over the top comedy that is ridiculous and sometimes straight out offensive and disgusting, the movie makes you laugh. I haven’t laughed like this for a good while, so it does however do its job as a comedy. if you are however looking for a calm comedy that takes itself a little bit serious….. stay away XD It contains offensive jokes, foul language (often from the small ones) over-dramatic scenes with plot twists, scrap that! there is plot twists everywhere, but the movie is for some reason able to keep you entertained as you try to pick up all the popcorn you dropped on the floor after laughing hysterically from a really bad line that just turns even more awkward as the other character replies back. A must watch mess for the ones that needs a good laugh, and bring a friend. It makes the movie 10 time better when a cheap but funny line comes up and both of you can relate XD
“Vacation” stikes a great balance between honoring the original film and paving its own holiday road.
“I found out long ago. It’s a long way down the holiday road.” Those are the opening lyrics from the Lindsey Buckingham song that is found in all four of National Lampoon’s “Vacation” movies of the 1980s and 90s. Those movies all starred Chevy Chase as the father who would stop at nothing to give his family the perfect vacation, whether it was a European vacation, a Vegas vacation, a Christmas vacation or a road trip to California’s (fictional) Walley World theme park. The holiday road is indeed a long one. It led us to all those places and back and then it led us here. 32 summer vacations later, a movie called simply “Vacation” (R, 1:39) is a remake/sequel/reboot hybrid which also features Buckingham’s catchy tune. The question is whether this vacation lives up to the legacy of the iconic film that shares its name.
This time, the only son of Clark (Chevy Chase) and Ellen Griswold (Beverly D’Angelo) is all grown up. Rusty (Ed Helms) is a pilot for a small budget airline. Like his parents in the earlier films, he’s married, has two kids and lives in Chicago. His wife, Debbie (Christina Applegate), is loyal and supportive, but longs for a little more spontaneity and variety in the marriage. They have two kids, boys named James (Skyler Gisondo) and Kevin (Steele Stebbins). James is an awkward, nerdy teenager and his foul-mouthed kid brother teases him mercilessly for it. Maybe a cross-country road trip is just what this family needs to come closer together. After all, as the movie poster asks: What could go wrong? Rusty decides to drive his family all the way from Chicago to Walley World in California, recreating his family’s similar (but infamous) childhood trip hopefully, with better results. Rusty starts by renting a “Prancer”, a car that’s even more interesting than the “Family Truckster” in the original film. It has two gas tanks, along with a plug which doesn’t look like it would fit any outlet in the known universe. This boxy blue bastardized Toyota Previa has a key fob and control panel with a bewildering number and assortment of buttons and a GPS that too easily gets stuck harshly giving directions in Korean.
But taking this “Honda of Albania” out on America’s highways is only the beginning of this Griswold adventure. Their ill-advised road trip involves being followed by an ominous-looking truck, being directed to a “hot spring” that really isn’t, losing personal possessions, plus father and son having a sex talk that’s more conjecture than fact. Stops on the trip include a very revealing visit to Debbie’s old college, a river rafting trip with a highly unstable guide (Charlie Day), a visit with Rusty’s grown sister, Audrey (Leslie Mann), and her hunky local TV weather man husband (Chris Hemsworth) as well as stopping at a bed-and-breakfast owned by a couple who will be very familiar to fans of the earlier films.
“Vacation” strikes a great balance between honoring its iconic origins and paving its own holiday road. The movie makes use of a few sight gags and incidents from the 1980s classic, but puts its own spin on them. The adult Rusty is every bit as earnest and bumbling as his dad, but Helms makes the character his own. As in the first film, the script makes good use of the comic potential inherent in a cross-country car trip, but doesn’t copy any scenarios from the earlier movies. Despite the distractingly inappropriate amount of foul language coming from the family’s youngest member, the humor, as raunchy and crude as it is, works well. While the first film’s humor was often more subtle in nature, the jokes in this one are often laugh-out-loud funny.
“Vacation” has some self-referential fun as Rusty’s family discusses who has heard of the original vacation and whether trying to duplicate it would just result in a big letdown. Whether an on-screen family conversation or a reflection of the thoughts of real-life moviegoers, those concerns are unfounded. The new fictional Griswolds are brought closer together by their trip and the cinematic portrayal of their misadventures is both fun & funny maybe even more than the first “Vacation”. “A-“
