Mini Review - Vacation

Vacation (out Aug 20) is a reboot of the 1983 original and follows a family who travel 4,000km across the country as a part of a "bonding" holiday on route to a famous theme park. The best scenes involve the family conversing/bickering in the car. It’s when they feel most real. The worst involve the odd assortment of characters they meet along the way. These moments feel too forced and manufactured. Grade: B-.
