What it's about:

The next generation of Griswolds is at it again, and the family is on the road for another ill-fated adventure. Following in his father’s footsteps and hoping for some much-needed family bonding, a grown-up Rusty Griswold surprises his wife, Debbie, and their two sons, with a cross-country trip back to America’s "favourite family fun park", Walley World.

What we thought:

Sometimes you just have to go into a movie knowing that the experience won’t change your life but it will give you a few good laughs.

That’s exactly what Vacation is all about.

The film is the fifth installment of the National Lampoon's Vacation film series and is loosely inspired by the original 1983 film.

In the 2015 reboot Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) takes his own family on a road trip to "Walley World" in order to spice things up with his wife and reconnect with his sons.

One thing is for sure – you didn’t have to see the original to enjoy the remake. In fact it might count in your favour when you watch Vacation (2015) as a completely separate flick.

The movie is filled to the brim with below the belt jokes and R-rated references that will have you crying with laughter.

The scene where Rusty explains the word "rim job" to his son James (Skyler Gisondo) is choke-on-your-popcorn funny.

If so-called toilet humour isn’t your thing then stay far far away.

If you’ve got a bit of a dirty mind and would like to see Chris Hemsworth’s cock then line up! This dirty comedy does exactly what it sets out to do and is laugh out loud funny.

Get together your friends who share your weird senses of humour and drag them out of their caves for some silly Saturday afternoon fun.

Vacation isn’t re-inventing the comedy wheel and it’s not giving us anything we haven’t seen before – but damn it’s fun to watch.
