​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

VACATION (2015)


#72 is the upcoming remake of Vacation. There's some funny stuff in this but every single surprise that would have drawn laughs is in the trailer. And I mean almost every single one! Ed Helms and Christina Applegate are fine as the 2015 Griswolds, son and daughter-in-law of the original Griswolds. Rusty decides to bond with his family by driving to Walley World just like his dad did when he was a kid. Sometimes hilarity ensues. Sometimes not. Lots of cameos, which we won't spoil. The Albanian rental car gags are amusing and some other stuff but this became tedious and extremely predictable halfway in. I would have killed for a fast forward switch. If you saw the trailer, you pretty much saw the best parts. Wait til you can rent it and fast forward when you need to (and you will).
