Late July brings the reboot of the comedy classic National Lampoon’s Vacation. This time it’s Ed Helms leading the new take, simply called Vacation, playing a grown-up Rusty Griswold bent on taking his own family on a trip to Walley World in an effort to bring them closer together.
There are plenty of little references to the original flick, including appearances by Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo, but something else that we were looking forward to in the movie was a mini Freaks and Geeks reunion.
The cult classic NBC series starred a young John Francis Daley, who is now a successful screenwriter with writing partner Jonathan Goldstein, and the two actually make their directorial debut on Vacation. Last fall, Daley said that fellow geeks Martin Starr (Silicon Valley) and Samm Levine (Selfie) would be appearing with him in cameos. But it turns out those cameos didn’t end up in the final cut.
