Vacation, the 2015 American romantic comedy film is here trying to re-do the comic frolics from the 1983's National Lampon's Vacation film.
The fifth theatrical installment from the National Lampoon's Vacation series is loosely inspired by the original 1983 National Lampoon's Vacation film where Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) is trying to re-live a trip which he did with his parents and sisters 30 years ago.
Trying to nix his family and save his eroding marriage, Rusty decides to take a road trip to Walley World with his wife, Debbie (Christina Applegate), and their two sons; James (Skyler Gisondo) who is a shy and anxious older son, Kevin (Steele Stebbins), the selfish younger son.
The journey starts on a fun and irritating way with the family hating the road trip even after Rusty tries hard to cheer them up and keep them entertained.
The Griswolds family takes various stops while on their road trip to the Walley World the first being Memphis.
In Arkansas, they got to a supposedly hidden spring by a drifter which turns out to be a sewage dump. Upon their return to the car, they see it broken with their cash and luggage stolen inside the car.
With no money and clothes, the family stops by in Texas and enters Rusty's sister, Audrey (Leslie Mann), and her husband, Stone Crandall (Chris Hemsworth).
The family stays at Arizona campsite and the next morning almost gets killed by a suicidal rafting guide (Charlie Day) in the Grand Canyon.
Vacation turns out to be a trauma with a lot of hurdles and complications with losing car, cash, luggage and then tailing down by crazy truck driver (Norman Reedus).
The disappointed Griswolds decide to go fly back home in Chicago after staying at Rusty's parents, Clark (Chevy Chase) and Ellen (Beverly D'Angelo).
Rusty's father Clark coax him and the next morning he decided to drive his family to Walley World to ride their newest coaster, Velociraptor before going to Chicago.
What happens next is a series of drama mixed with comedy and fun-filled rides!
Cast: Ed Helms and Christina Applegate play a funny married couple who try to save their marriage. Chris Hemsworth is one of the major attractions who does not stay long on the screen but his appearance especially the shirtless moment where he actually stuffed his underwear with a giant fake penis for the film is drool-worthy!
Although the vacation turns out to be a disaster, the movie directed and written by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, has a happy ending and doesn't disappoint us when it comes to the comic factor.
