Vacation is your typical reboot of a classic movie franchise, in that it shouldn’t have been made. In this film, it’s Rusty Griswold taking his family on a nightmare vacation. It has its moments of being funny, but overall, it’s not good. I’m quite disappointed that John Francis Daley left his role on the television series Bones to make this movie. The performances were fine. Ed Helms is good at his role of Rusty, but it feels like Helms plays the same guy in everything else that he is in. The same goes for Christina Applegate. The film isn’t the worst, but it’s not the best. It’s more of a disappointment to watch with a few funny adult jokes to throw in there too. As well there are a few cameos that are kind of expected in this film with a few that were not.

Awful. There is nothing redeemable about this movie. I had the expectation that it would resemble the strength and humor of National Lampoons Vacation but it was just plain awful, with constant cursing and despicable behaviors.

Was a nice comedy mixed with fluffy family moments. Good actors. Good DVD movie

Several hilarious scenes! That car and the physical comedy were the best done parts. Not great on characters, dialogue or story though.
Oh my the rocket ship! And the muffin!

This movie was horrible. I feel bad for Christina Applegate (who seems like a nice person) for having to be in this. The cameo of Chevy Chase/Beverly D'Angelo at the end was painful to watch. There is not one funny moment in this whole movie. It could possibly be the worst movie ever made. Not even the gorgeousness of Chris Hemsworth can save this.

I just watched "Drunk, Stoned, Brilliant, Dead" about the National Lampoon. The people discussing the making of the original "Vacation" for 5 minutes was 10 times funnier than this whole film. Save yourself - just avoid it.

I didn't expect it to be as funny as the original, and I thought it might just a remake, but I was pleasantly surprised and found parts of it to be very funny.

If you have old school values, DON'T WATCH THIS. It was so over the top vulgar our family mutually agreed to shut the movie off after the first 5-10 min. It had been a while since I had watched a Lampoon movie and was curious. YUP! no change, still finding humor in humiliating other people and yet wanted to add political correctness (tells you something about throwing that out the window) A big thumbs down from our entire family. I wish I could give it negative stars.

I thought this movie was funny. Not as funny as The Millers, but it will do. My son loved it. Unfortunately, it does have curse words and obscenities that little ears shouldn't hear.

Rusty: Well, why not?
Grandpa: I mean, they always say "it's not the destination, it's the journey," right?
Rusty: The journey sucks.
Grandpa: That's what makes you appreciate the destination.

James: Why'd you get an Albanian car, Dad?
Rusty: Renting a family car on Memorial Day weekend doesn't leave you with a lot of options. But this baby is pretty sweet. It's got all the latest Albanian technology. Check it out. Plug-in hybrid. ...

-Dad, what's so special about Walley World? I mean, we have plenty of theme parks at home.
Rusty: Well, Walley World is home of the one and only Velociraptor.
-What the hell is that?
Rusty: It's only the newest, scariest roller coaster in the country. Four hundred and fifty feet tall, 110 miles an hour...triple corkscrew loop.
