I had planned on hating the trailer for this. I had put a lot of effort and thought into loathing it. I was completely and totally prepared to burn it to the ground.
But the trailer isn’t terrible. I’m not saying it’s brilliant or anything, but Ed Helms does seem to grasp the Chevy Chase style of humor, and it feels appropriately spiritually successor-y to the original Vacation. Plus, Charlie Day and Leslie Mann are in it, and Thor pulls off a pretty good Brad Pitt in Thelma and Louise.
I DON’T HATE IT. I’M SORRY.
