I cannot express in words the hilarity contained in this movie. I kid you not, The Vacation truly made me crack up like a dying sea lion for two hours straight. The plain idiocy of the main characters simultaneously combined with a spiral of life’s misfortune makes this movie an altogether shrewd film. The concept was admittedly mediocre but the directors and scriptwriters had really discovered a way to base outstanding storyboards off of it. The moviegoers also play a major role in the overall amusement of this film. They were very expressive and vocal in a way that is incredibly witty. Most of them weren’t A-List actors and actresses but they killed it with their astounding performances!
My brother sat on the couch beside me and he can barely contain his laughter all throughout. The same applies for me. All eyes were riveted to the screen as we sit there with mouths wide agape. There were moments when I felt like slapping some brain into the main character due to how foolish he is portrayed, but I presume that’s what constantly draws my vigilance. He is the ultimate jackass and knucklehead. All in all, The Vacation is a great holiday treat to watch with your whole family! Go watch!
