Rusty Griswold, the youngest child from 1983's National Lampoon's Vacation is all grown up with a family of his own and fond childhood memories of a certain family road trip to Walley World, "America's Favorite Family Fun Park." Like his father, Clark (Chevy Chase), Rusty wants to forge closer bonds with his own family - wife Debbie (Christina Applegate) and boys James and Kevin (Skyler Gisondo and Steele Stebbins) - so he buys a souped-up Albanian van and convinces them to set off on their own crazy cross-country jaunt to Walley World. Directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein.~Erin Demers
This was a great movie I wanted to find it on Blu-ray and Best Buy had it on sale for the same price as the standard DVD.
Unfortunately after looking for a half an hour on the shelves to only find the standard dvd copy I finally found an employee who offered to look it up for me just to find out that it was stored in the back room and not on the shelf.
If you can't find something it's probably locked up. This is the 2nd time this has happen to me. But for the great price I paid for a brand new great flick it was worth the trouble!
Overall it’s a funny movie that is a sequel to the Chevy Chase 1983 movie “National Lampoon Vacation”. It features his son taking his family back to Wally World to relive childhood memories and to attempt “family bonding.” Some parts are absolutely hilarious. Sometimes it gets a little too silly for my tastes, but overall is worth a few bucks to see.
I might be being a bit generous with the stars because I really love National Lampoon's Vacation and really like Christmas Vacation. I'm also a long-time fan of Christina Applegate and I like Ed Helms, too. This movie had its funny moments but I think it could have been funnier. I did enjoy the cameos by Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo, and nods to the first movie like the original station wagon. I would probably place it third in my order of favorites for all of the Vacation movies.
