Though the critics were generally unkind to Vacation, which stars Ed Helms (The Hangover series, TV's The Office) as Rusty Griswold and Christina Applegate as his wife Debbie, the comedy managed to pull in nearly $100 million at the worldwide box office during its late-summer theatrical release.
From the official Warner Bros. press materials:"The next generation of Griswolds are on the road again for another hilarious, ill-fated family adventure. Following in his father’s footsteps, a grown-up Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) surprises his wife, Debbie (Christina Applegate), and their two sons with a cross-country road trip back to America’s “favorite family fun park,” Walley World. What could go wrong?"
Vacation also stars Skyler Gisondo (Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb) and Steele Stebbins (A Haunted House 2) as Rusty’s sons, James and Kevin; with Chris Hemsworth (the Thor and Avengers films) in the role of Stone Crandall, Rusty’s irritatingly successful brother-in-law; Leslie Mann (The Other Woman) as Stone’s wife, Rusty’s sister, Audrey; and Beverly D’Angelo and Chevy Chase as Ellen and Clark Griswold from the classic National Lampoon’s Vacation franchise.
Special features on the Vacation Blu-ray Combo Pack include: "Return to Walley World," "The Griswold Odyssey," a gag reel, deleted scenes, and "Georgia." The standard DVD will include only those last two (deleted scenes, "Georgia") items.
