Synopsis

VACATION follows the now adult Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) as he takes his family on a cross-country road trip similar to the one he and his family took when he was young. National Lampoon’s Vacation (1983) paved the way for the John Hughes movie dynasty of the 1980s. Written by Hughes (who would go on to write, direct, and/or produce The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Uncle Buck, Home Alone) and directed by Harold Ramis (Caddyshack, Groundhog Day, Stuart Saves His Family), the first Vacation movie introduced us to the all-American Griswold family: father Clark (Chevy Chase), mother Ellen (Beverly D’Angelo), son Rusty (Anthony Michael Hall) and daughter Audrey (Dana Barron) with former supermodel Christie Brinkley as The Woman in the Ferrari.
