Of Course They’re Rebooting National Lampoon’s Vacation
The planned reboot of National Lampoon’s Vacation (why, oh, why) has found a director. Two of them to be exact. John Francis Daley and Johnathan Goldstein, who wrote last summer’s blockbuster comedy Horrible Bosses, have been pegged by New Line to helm the project.
Daley is an actor-turned-writer who has appeared in shows such as Freaks and Geeks, Kitchen Confidential and Bones. Goldstein worked on comedies such as The New Adventures of Old Christine and $#*! My Dad Says as a writer-supervising producer.
Little Sam from Freaks and Geeks is all growns up. Adorable. I’m probably in the minority, but I thought Horrible Bosses sucked. It was so tepid, I actually fell asleep right after Jennifer Aniston performed fellatio on a banana, which to be honest was the only reason I was watching. Well, that and Charlie Day.
As for a Vacation remake, uh, I’ll take a contrarian position and express my unyielding faith that Hollywood won’t sully another of my childhood memories. I mean, it can’t be any worse than Are We There Yet?, right?
Whatever. I just needed a reason to post my favorite clip from the one and true Vacation. Don’t touch!
