Movie Minutes: Vacation (2015)
It saddens me to watch critics verbally bash Vacation like an unsuspecting piñata, almost as if there's some sweet prize to be procured from its mutilated carcass, as is the case with any enjoyable film that gets ripped to shreds by seas of reviewers. Sure, it won't win any Academy Awards (as if that means anything anymore anyways) or save the world, but if it made me forget about my miserable life for a little while, then it's worth the while. And if you're in the mood for some raw, R-rated raunchiness served on a golden platter by Ed Helms and Christina Applegate, two of the best around, then take a chance on this National Lampoon sequel. It's funny wall to wall.
