Yes... the new Vacation was unleashed to the average moviegoer last summer, debuting to lousy critical notice, even worse box office (Though a sequel is still planned since it did gross around $100 million worldwide on a $30 million dollar budget) but did fairly well with audiences according to CinemaScore with a solid B.... way better than most comedies this day and age but still its not that good of a movie in my opinion. This film is a reboot/sequel/remake of the original film, where Rusty Griswold is the family man this time around (Played by Ed Helms) with a family of his own consisting of his wife Debbie (Christina Applegate) and two sons, Kevin & James. The family all tire of going to the same cabin year in and year out, so Rusty decides to take his family to Wally World, hoping to strengthen the bond of his family and relive his past trip to Wally World 30 years prior. And hijinks ensue with stops at Debbie's old college sorority, run-ins with a mysterious trucker, a stop at an all "natural" hot spring and more all without the same charm and hilarity as the original film. The film has a great and talented cast, but the character of Rusty is all wrong. Ed Helms performance is okay, but the approach is not Rusty at all from the previous films. In the older films, Rusty is a witty, smart alleck kid who is cooler and even headed and is wise beyond his years, but in this film, he is mild mannered, and a bit of a doofus, which is Clark not Rusty. The kids are hugely annoying and one-sided (Look the other brother is a gentle hearted weakling! Look the younger brother is a foul-mouthed brat!), Audrey became hugely stupid and also unbelievable to the original character and seemingly only married her husband (A very game Chris Hemsworth, one of the best parts of the film!) for a man, the car is just a redo of the Truckster, and the humor is gross-out and expletive filled. I'm no lightweight when it comes to comedy, I love gross out comedy, but only if it suits the style of the film or stays true to the original film but this film is gross and brass for the sake of being gross and brass. Sure, I laughed at the whole hot springs scene, and the scene where a steer meets a 4-wheeler and Debbie vomits profusely after chugging a whole pitcher of beer and being repeatedly struck with teddy bears and other obstacles (Don't ask!), but the original's humor lie with the escalating situation of the ensuing journey and the slow descent into madness with Clark leading to one of the all time best verbal blow ups ever filmed. So if you like crude comedy that is unneeded and characters that are unfaithful to their previous incarnations, then by all means buy it, but even then, wait for it to hit $10 or less. The PQ and AQ are tiptop, with the modern digital photography looking sharp and colorful and the audio, when the occasion calls for it, surrounds the viewer with nice separation of sound effects and music and all heard loud and clear. No complaints here. The extras, are unfortunately fairly lackluster, with only a couple of decent EPK's with only a smidgen of BTS, and loads of talking heads saying its soo much fun being on the set and being part of a legacy. Meh. The deleted scenes are ok, but nothing worth being put in the film and the gag reel is terribly unfunny (OMG!!!!!) with the last feature being an advertisement on the state of Georgia and how filming there was such an amazing experience. A DVD and a DC is also included to round off the package. So in all fairness, just rent it from Redbox, or just catch it on TBS where its bound to end up in a few years and totally not worth your time.
