      Vacation Reviews

      Prev Next

      A kind of a cross between We're the Millers and Identity Theft without any real driving purpose, Vacation is an odious mix of tasteless humour and "teachable moments".

      Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5 | Sep 22, 2022

      Shock and gross-out humor has its limits, and these filmmakers go out of their way to explore those limits.

      Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4 | Jun 8, 2022

      The film was never going to be very smart, but it delivers the belly laughs you needed and were looking for.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Apr 12, 2021

      If not for certain brand of anatomical humour Vacation would be about 12 minutes long.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Feb 3, 2021

      Most of the comedy just doesn't work, which is odd because the premise sets up its characters to go from crazy moment to crazy moment.

      Immediately embracing raunchy R-rated humor, the gags arrive swiftly and abrasively.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/10 | Dec 4, 2020

      This movie is as soulless as they come, barely worth the words I'm expending upon it now.

      Full Review | Apr 8, 2020

      Vacation has the wit of The Hangover, the charm of Wedding Crashers, and the appropriate amount of inappropriateness of We're The Millers.

      Full Review | Original Score: 9/10 | Nov 13, 2019

      Despite the cast's best efforts, Vacation 2.0's 99 minutes are nearly as exhausting as an overnight drive. National Lampoon's Vacation's formula for success has been left in the trunk.

      Vacation is very fun and provokes a lot of laughter. [Full Review in Spanish]

      Full Review | Feb 15, 2019

      There are plenty of nods to the original "Vacation" films that fans of the series will appreciate, but this one also manages to have its own voice. It's a reboot that doesn't coast off its predecessor.

      Rather than apologizing for its mere existence, it embraces the absurdity and for that packing up to Walley World again is worth the trip.

      Full Review | Original Score: B | Dec 10, 2018

      Nostalgia trips are fun up to a point, but they can quickly veer into self-indulgence.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5 | Dec 10, 2018

      I feel like the studio gave this movie the green light without a script. Who needs a script?

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/10 | Nov 2, 2018

      It isn't very encouraging when the opening credits of a comedy highlight butt cracks and enlarged horse penises during a montage of postcard photographs, but at least it was a sign to set expectations very low

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | Dec 3, 2017

      Right from the start, however, there are signs that Vacation might be a comically unlucky film.

      Full Review | Oct 30, 2017

      We've seen it all before and, to be honest, the Vacation package had already lost its ability to elicit even faint smiles and chuckles toward the end of its run.

      Full Review | Original Score: D | Oct 17, 2017

      Vacation is not an offensively bad movie. It's not very funny, but at least it's not openly contemptuous of its audience.

      Full Review | Oct 16, 2017

      Vacation cannot escape its background nor recover as anything but a pale offshoot of the original.

      Full Review | Original Score: D | Aug 17, 2017

      Wacky hijinks ensue, some of them very funny, some dipping desperately into bad taste, some just falling flat. (Which, it's worth remembering, was the case with even the best films of this franchise.)
