The Griswolds are BACK!! Homeaway's "HOTEL HELL VACATION"

If you watched the Super Bowl last night, you may have noticed the ad for which featured Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo as the Griswolds-this time on their way to visit their son Rusty and his family.This ad is actually a promo clip for the 14 minute movie that was made, playing on the "Vacation" series. In this first in a series of mini-films,they decide to stay at an "exclusive" hotel as a romantic getaway before their week with their son, Rusty and his family. Unfortunatly nothing is what it supposed to be, thus entering "Hotel Hell"..

Personally, I thought this was the funniest "Vacation" I have seen since "Christmas Vacation" and have got to give the writers as well as the director for getting it right w/o the fingers of Hollywood to screw it up.
Hopefully this is a precursor to the rumoured new "Vacation" film that was to introduce Rusty's family. However maybe someone better as Rusty though-maybe bring back AMH.
14 minutes of hilarity-and I want more.

lists and notes

Movies or T.V. Series, I'd like made before I Die:

-"Planetary" based on the comic book by Warren Ellis
-"Top Ten"
-A worthy sequel to "The Thing",and
Kurt Russell has to be in it
-"100 Bullets"
-"Stray Bullets", and it has to be filmed in Baltimore.Period.
-"Liberty Meadows", rated R, and filmed like "Garfield"
-"The Avengers"
-An "Uncanny X-men" television series instead of some overblown film, done ala "Smallville"
-A "Star Wars" television series that explores not only stories about other characters inbetween the film series and history of the series but also the "What if's" as well.
-"Justice League"
-"Star Wars" 7,8,9 and maybe 10,11,12....
-HellBlazer movie or tv series,preferbly with an English Actor
-"Man on Fire" sequel.. Do you hear me Tony Scott!!! It was Denzel's best movie dammit!
