Story: Rusty (Helms), an aircraft pilot for a domestic carrier comes upon the idea to take his wife Debbie (Applegate) along with two sons James (Gisondo) and Kevin (Stebbins) on a road trip to an amusement park called Walley World. Their road trip however, is nothing short of disastrous, as they are beset at almost every turn during the journey, by various difficulties.

Review: While the film is supposed to derive loose inspiration from National Lampoon's Vacation (1983), there are actually just a few similarities. For example, this version spares nothing when it comes to bawdiness and potty humour that can either hugely tickle your funny bone, or put you off, if naughty jokes don't float your boat.

Rusty is a perfectly loving dad and husband. He loves his two boys and sees himself more as a friend to them, rather than a patriarchal figure. Debbie knows he is extremely well-meaning but she craves for him to be a bit more rough-and-tough, apart from wishing he was a bit more dominating with her in the boudoir. She misses the point that he's a genuinely rare 'nice guy' and that bed-breaking sex is not the be-all of a relationship. For the blissfully unaware Rusty however, the road trip is the ultimate tool in his bag of tricks to not only bring the spark back into his marriage, but help him bond with his sons too.

The movie has plenty of genuinely funny moments. Their vehicle for starters, looks ready to fall apart at any time, with the voice of the GPS navigation system sounding like a hysterically angry samurai warrior. There's also the part when they spend the night at Rusty's sister Audrey's (Leslie Mann) country home. Hemsworth has a full-on hamming-it-to-the-hilt role as a wealthy Southern gent who has a bourbon glass seemingly glued to his hand all day, is impossibly well-endowed and is a bull stud when in bed with Audrey. Apart from his cameo, you'll also want to look out for a portly Chevy Chase's turn here. Fancy a bunch of laughs? Go see it then.
