Stands on it's Own, but very Raunchy
30 July 2015 | by (NC) – See all my reviews

I'm a HUGE Vacation fan...and went to see this new one fresh except for the trailers. Let me say this upfront....It's very funny, BUT, it's also very raunchy. I have a high tolerance for that, and still found myself cringing a few times. Funny that there was an "older" couple behind me in the theater, with their teen "kids/grand-kids". They were laughing HARD the first few minutes, then the lady says "this is too much" and they almost left...but she said "no, it's funny". They stayed all the way and we're laughing most of the whole way. BUT it is uncomfortable at times. Still, it was VERY funny.

So, I went home and re-watched the original. It was pretty dark, and filthy at times too. Just a little more "inside joke" than in your face like the new one. But anyone that says the original was not cutting edge...watch it again. Plenty of cursing, animal abuse, sex, and shenanigans. It actually holds fairly true, given the 30 years. Oh, and Chevy Rocks in his part. Still great comedic timing.
