I haven't processed my emotions concerning this new reboot of the Vacation franchise, with Ed Helms picking up the Griswold mantle as the adult version of Rusty, and Christina Applegate as his wife:

It's not that Helms didn't play Rusty Griswold in the original National Lampoon's Vacation. That was Anthony Michael Hall. There were four Vacation movies and four separate sets of Griswold kids, so it's actually kind of fitting that they recast the role once again. Plus, Helms is a lot funnier than Hall, and that's what's really important.
