“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.

Vacation header

Warner Bros. has just released the final red band theatrical trailer for the Vacation reboot. Ed Helms stars as an all grown up Rusty Griswold, who carries on the Griswold tradition of unnecessarily taking his family on a cross country vacation to Walley World, in order to bring his family together, just like in the first film. Christina Applegate plays his wife, Debbie.

As the red band card suggests, this is a very NSFW trailer, so if you really want to see it, put some headphones on, or just wait until you get home. But if you do choose the latter, check out the trailer below.

Christmas Vacation

Over the Christmas holiday, a prankster changed an exit sign on New Jersey’s Garden State Parkway to the name of Chevy Chase’s character in the National Lampoon’s Vacation films, according to NBC New York.

Someone used tape to doctor up the “Clark/Westfield” highway exit sign to read “Clark Griswold,” the name of the patriarch of the vacations-gone-array comedy films, including 1989’s Christmas Vacation.

National Lampoon’s ‘Christmas Vacation’: What’s The Damage? (Video)

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation What's The Damage? Video

In National Lampoon’s Vacation movies, Chevy Chase’s Clark Griswold and his family wreak havoc during their trips across the United States and Europe, but it seems the Griswolds might have done the most damage when they stayed home in 1989’s Christmas Vacation.

In Christmas Vacation, Clark goes overboard with holiday decorations and cheer as extended family comes to his home to celebrate Christmas. If you’ve seen the film (and I highly recommend that you do), you’ll recall that a lot – and I mean a lot — of stuff was destroyed. The folks over at CinemaSins have put together a video that highlights as well as accesses all the damage that occurs in the film, from broken windows (there’s plenty) to fires (plenty of those, too) to that whole mess with Santa and his reindeers.

Check out the video “Christmas Vacation – What’s The Damage?” here below.

National Lampoon's Vacation Wagon Queen Family Truckster

Thirty years ago today, National Lampoon’s Vacation starring Chevy Chase was released in theaters and the world got to go on a cross-country road trip with the Griswold family as they drove their hideous metallic pea Wagon Queen Family Truckster (you think you hate it now, wait til you drive it) from their home in Chicago to the Walley World theme park in Los Angeles. As we know, things didn’t exactly go smoothly, but the Griswolds had love and they had each other.

In honor of National Lampoon’s Vacation 30th anniversary, a real-life Griswold family – Steve and Lisa Griswold and their two daughters, Lisa and Brook – took a journey in their own custom-made Wagon Queen Family Truckster, driving from their home in Canton, Georgia, to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Their Truckster matches the one seen in the film, complete with the blue and brown luggage on the roof rack!

Check out the photos of the car as well as video with the family here below.
