What’s The Plot?

Rusty Griswold and his family are in a serious rut. Bored with his job as a pilot for a low-cost airline, struggling to maintain his relationship with his wife and kids, he decides to do something drastic and arrange the trip of a lifetime, a trip across the US to Walley World, a theme park he loved as a child. Packing his family up for the ride, they head out on the road for the long trip to Walley World, it’s a road trip that doesn’t exactly go to plan...


Who’s In It?

The Hangover’s Ed Helm takes the leading role as Rusty Griswold, taking over from Chevy Chase, who makes a short appearance in the movie later on. Starring alongside Helm are Anchorman’s Christina Applegate, Thor mainman Chris Hemsworth and Knocked Up’s Leslie Mann, while there are also short, but memorable appearances from The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus, Horrible Bosses’ Charlie Day and comedian Keegan Michael-Key.


Does It Deliver?
