Watch Now: Chevy Chase In ‘Hotel Hell Vacation’ Film Short

Hotel Hell Vacation

If you were watching the Super Bowl last night, then you most likely saw the Home Away commercial with Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo reprising their roles from the Vacation franchise.

The commercial is presented as if it’s a teaser trailer for a short film — the film itself is online at the Home Away site. You can watch the 14-minute short, titled Hotel Hell Vacation, here below. I’ve also embedded the Super Bowl commercial, but I recommend skipping it in favor of watching the entire short film (the commercial just doesn’t do it justice).

At first the mini-movie seems like it’s a dud, as one of the early scenes with the Valet is not so funny. But stick with it, trust me, it gets quite humorous after that.

I’ve traveled a lot, so I can relate to the ludicrous scenarios presented in the movie. Plus, it’s great to see Chase and D’Angelo back on screen as the vacation-jinxed Griswolds.

Are We Ready For A Sequel To ‘National Lampoon’s Vacation’?

Vacation

It’s being reported that a new movie in the National Lampoon series is now on the way, but it’s not quite the mindless processed generic college movies they have been making the last few years. No, this movie actually isn’t involved with the National Lampoon name at the moment, and will bring us right back to their roots with those lovable simpletons, the Griswold family. This new movie is planning to actually focus on the son in Vacation and its sequels, Rusty, and his family now going on a road trip of their own with references to his old family adventures. Wacky hijinks are sure to ensue.

New Line Cinema is currently meeting with writers to get a script going as soon as possible, and it is noted that places will be left wide open for the main draw Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) and his wife (Beverly D’Angelo) to appear in some fashion as the now grandparents. The movie is aiming to be more like Planes, Trains and Automobiles and Little Miss Sunshine instead of other road trip movie trash like and Are We There Yet? and RV.
