I read alot of bad reviews for Vacation so I wasn't expecting to like it at all.It was a funny movie until the scene where Rusty is driving & starts flirting with the lady driving the sports car next to him.She veers onto oncoming traffic & gets smashed by a truck.Rusty looks in his rear view mirror & you see a big ball of smoke.Could somebody explain to me how this is funny?! After that I couldn't watch anymore.I remember when Vacation 1st came out, a couple of the trailers looked pretty funny.I couldn't wait to see the movie & then after I saw the trailer with the car crash in it I no longer had any interest in seeing it.I completely forgot about that until I started watching the movie.Before the car crash scene, Vacation was a funny movie except for the sorority party scene.I thought …

The new 'Vacation' (rebooted sequel?) doesn't feel like the previous 'Vacation' films. It's not consistent in tone with the series. This is a straight up R-rated ridiculous gross-out comedy. It resembles something like 'We're the Millers'. A typical family road trip premise becomes an excuse to string together a series of vignettes, which include: bodily fluids and excrement, heavy sexual dialogue, cursing children, harsh violence, and some off-putting remarks towards pedophilia and rape. And yet, I still managed to get some shock value type laughs out of that concoction. That's the main positive saving this all-too-wornout formula from being any less than average. It's not mean, or cynical. The family, despite having little character, work well as a unit. I found myself …
