Rusty Griswold takes his own family on a road trip to "Walley World" in order to spice things up with his wife and reconnect with his sons.
As an homage to the previous four movies: National Lampoon's Vacation (1983), National Lampoon's European Vacation (1985), National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989), and Vegas Vacation (1997), the pictures Rusty looks at in his photo album near the beginning of the film, are taken from each of the aforementioned films.
James, you are not going to fight.
James Griswold: I am not going to stand here like a little bitch.
When Stone and Rusty are rounding up the herd, the shots alternate between bright sunshine and no sunshine.
In both the opening and closing credits, vacation photos are showed that are partially obscured. Whatever is covering part of the photo is moved away, usually revealing a humorous twist.
