Yes, I’m part of the small group of people that think this is a pretty good film. I like this film. I’ve never seen the original, so maybe that helps—with me having no connection to it or anything, but I just have a lot of fun with this.
Yeah, some of the jokes just don’t land. And it could use a little more heart, but I still think a majority of the film is fun enough and quite funny. The cast was genuinely solid, and I loved all the cameos throughout (Charlie Day, Chevy Chase, etc.). I honestly don’t have all that much to say, because the humour excuses the slightly cliched, sometimes unfunny plot for me.
(Mostly) very funny, with a solid cast and a handful of fun cameos, Vacation is far from a well made, technical masterpiece, but it’s a fun time.
