Vacation movie quotes reboot the classic National Lampoon's Vacation film series with a new, modern installment following one family's road trip to Walley World. The comedy was written and directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein using the premise of the 1983 movie for inspiration. With Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo reprising their roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold, Vacation opened in theaters on July 29, 2015.

In Vacation, Griswold son Rusty (Ed Helms) is now an adult with a wife and family of his own. He dreams about taking his family, including wife Debbie (Christina Applegate) and sons James (Skyler Gisondo) and Kevin (Steele Stebbins) on a cross-country road trip to the Walley World amusement park, just like the trip he took 30 years earlier in the original film.

So Rusty packs up the family in a fancy new, albeit odd foreign, car and they set off on vacation. Of course the hijinks, odd meetings with new characters and laughs follow, including when they visit Rusty's sister, Audrey (Leslie Mann), and her quite open husband, Stone Crandall (Chris Hemsworth).

Vacation cameos include those form Charlie Day, Ron Livingston, Norman Reedus, Keegan-Michael Key, Regina Hall, Nick Kroll, Michael Pena, Colin Hanks and many others as the film opens alongside the likes of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, Pixels, Southpaw, and Ant-Man.
