I'm occasionally curious due to the tits plastered on the covers, but I never take the plunge.
EDIT: I own VAN WILDER.
|Marty: You don't know when to quit, do ya Griswold?... Here's an idea: Why don't you give me half the money your were gonna to bet, then we'll go out back, I'll kick you in the nuts, and we'll call it a day!|
While it is the worst of the bunch (by far) VV's best moments are Chevy Chase VS Wallace Shawn's Blackjack Dealer
Though you guys may be right about Christmas Vacation being funnier, I think Vacation is a better film overall.
When my family returned to America in 1982, we drove from NYC to Alabama ... two adults, two kids and an Old English Sheepdog all in one car. It was a nightmare. Here's a highlight:
Sometime around midnight the engine of our rental car bursts into flames. We pull over to the side of the highway (I think this was in Columbia, S.C.) to avoid getting cooked. My younger brother was asleep and refused to budge, because he thought I was kidding when I told him the car was on fire. We drag his ass out to find ourselves standing in a muddy pasture (remember: sheep dog) and my mom loses her shoes in the muck. A tow truck driver stops to help and takes us to a gas station ... which had just been robbed. We walk into the store and everyone's laying on the floor. It quickly becomes a very dirty floor because of the muddy dog.
The first time I saw Vacation it was like a Vietnam vet seeing Platoon for the first time.
Vacation is on tv right now, and I think I've finally seen this enough times that I don't miss "I'm So Excited" as Christie Brinkley's theme. The first time I heard the Little Boy Sweet version on DVD years ago, it really bummed me out.
Anthony Michael Hall, Johnny Galecki, Ethan Embry and that other guy must be so pissed!
The sequelboot might actually be funny?
And they nailed it.
Helms and Applegate's goofy interplay onstage and an edgy, raunchy film clip for the film opening July 31 became the unexpected CinemaCon darling.
"I wasn't expecting much for this film," says Keith Simanton, managing editor of the film database IMDB.com. "But I laughed a lot, which completely surprised me and I think everyone. People were cheering by the end."
Pretty spot-on, Dynamo. I can watch the first two anytime, and they're endlessly quotable. Clark's glasses falling off his face half a piece at a time after the car wreck is one of my favorite sight gags ever. Chase occasionally makes noise about an Australian Vacation, but I'm guessing it's about as likely as The Blues Brothers 3 that Aykroyd has mentioned on occasion.
I'll go ahead and disagree with that one. I don't see a single gag in this Vacation reboot trailer that already hasn't been beaten to death in multiple other comedies over the past 15 years.
Yep, and that film exceeded my expectations. It also relegated Ed Helms to a small supporting role, which is pretty much my pain tolerance for him at this time.
