A lot has been said about how hard The Revenant was to make, but I think the hardest movie to make these days is a straight up comedy.  I tried thinking of a list of the great comedies of the past couple years and I could only name a few off the top of my head (shout out to Neighbors).  Maybe all the best material has moved to TV, or maybe I’m just a curmudgeon.  Anyways, Vacation will not join that list of great comedies and it doesn’t hold a candle to the 1983 original, but I did laugh out loud at least 10 times so I thought it was worthy.  I’m glad WB kept up the vulgarity and raunchiness of the original, and didn’t try to make a toned down PG-13 version.  Currently on HBO.  Tier 6
