Rusty Griswold (Helms), the now-grown son of the repeatedly-vacationing Griswold clan, is determined to show his family a good time. Broad but refreshing reboot of the franchise, with plenty of solid laughs, especially from Applegate as Rusty's wife Debbie, although there's too much reliance on crude language.
