The next generation of Griswolds are on the road again for another hilarious, ill-fated family adventure. Following in his father’s footsteps, a grown-up Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms, Cedar Rapids) surprises his wife, Debbie (Christina Applegate, Hall Pass), and their two sons with a cross-country road trip back to America’s “favorite family fun park,” Walley World. What could go wrong?

Directed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley, the film also stars Chris Hemsworth (Rush) and Leslie Mann (The Other Woman). Of course, Chevy and his original Vacation co-star Beverly D’Angelo (Hair High) make an appearance, as well.

Though it was generally well-received by the critics, Vacation only did average business when it was released wide to U.S. theaters in July, 2015, where it grossed $58 million.

Here’s a list of bonus features:

  • Return to Walley World (Blu-ray only)
    · The Griswold Odyssey (Blu-ray only)
    ·         Gag Reel (Blu-ray only)
