TwitView: Vacation

vacation onesheet

No.  Just no.  Don’t go.  Grade: D

If someone took National Lampoons Vacation, Jackass, and a slew of poop, barf and ‘nads jokes, put ’em in a blender…it’d still be better than this film.  Vacation manages to waste every opportunity to do something more than aim for the lowest common denominator, all the while telegraphing each joke so you know exactly what’s coming next.  (Doesn’t help that the trailers spoil everything that could have been funny if I hadn’t already seen ’em over and over again on TV.)

You know the drill; Griswolds head to Wally World.  The end.  Yep, that’s it.  Son/now-dad Rusty packs his wife and two boys into the obligatory hideous car and hits the road.  Even with cameos from truly talented comics — not to mention the probably court-mandated scenes Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo were forced into — this never got more than a chuckle from me.

Caveat: Norman Reedus has a cameo that steals the show.  He’s funnier in his silence than the rest of the cast are with their “jokes” and slapstick.  I’m sure you’ll be able to hit up YouTube to catch that tidbit very soon — the Daryl Dixon Army is a strong one — if you’re curious.  It’s the best part of a decidedly tepid rehash of cringe-worthy sight gags, sexism and shaming.

Many of the folks at the screening I attended guffawed through this travesty.  Perhaps they were so glad they weren’t watching Pixels they’d laugh at anything.
