“I just thought we could sing Seal together, like normal families do.”
Following in the footsteps of his father Clark (Chevy Chase), a grown-up Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) surprises his wife, Debbie (Christina Applegate), and their kids, Kevin (Steele Stebbins) and James (Skyler Gisondo), with a cross-country trek to America’s favorite family fun park: Walley World. As you might imagine, everything that can go wrong, does.
Written and directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Horrible Bosses), Vacation is the fifth theatrical installment in the National Lampoon’s Vacation series. Believe it or not, the character of Rusty Griswold has been played by six different actors: Anthony Michael Hall, Jason Lively, Johnny Galecki, Ethan Embry, Travis Greer and Ed Helms.
Warner Brothers has released the full theatrical trailer for Vacation, their reboot/sequel to the hit movie series of the same name starring Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo as Clark and Ellen Griswold, who also reprise their famous roles in cameo appearances in the new movie.
The new movie follows one of the Griswold children, Rusty (played by Ed Helms), who’s now married with children and taking his own family on a vacation back to the original movie’s destination: Walley World.
