It's 32 years since Mr and Mrs Griswold (Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo) took their family on holiday in National Lampoon's Vacation.
It’s 32 years since Mr and Mrs Griswold (Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo) took their family on holiday in National Lampoon’s Vacation. Now their irrepressibly chipper grown-up son, Rusty (Ed Helms), is determined to take his wife, Debbie (Christina Applegate) and quarrelling sons, sensitive, guitar-strumming James (Skyler Gisondo) and psychotic, bullying younger brother Kevin (Steele Stebbins) on a family bonding trip to Walley World theme park – with similarly hysterically disastrous results. The cast also includes Leslie Mann as Rusty’s sister and Chris Hemsworth, having lots of fun as his farcically well-endowed weatherman brother-in-law, plus neat cameos from Chase and D’Angelo. Everyone makes the most of the steady stream of gags, which include a priceless gross-out bathing experience and many jokes at the expense of their dreadful car, a clunky, gas-guzzling minivan with a sat nav that barks out orders in an angry Korean voice.
