    Because they are in total damage control. Movies are expensive to make and market. Remakes are zero risk.

    it looks just as dumb as the original, just a little more outdated.

    The original may have been dumb, but it was very funny.

    At least it isn't another superhero origin story

    Never cared much for CC's brand of comedy, so I might actually like this one

    As Tosh said, Chevy Chase was never funny.

    Remaking Vacation is one thing, but I saw an ad for the new Poltergeist last night. For some reason, that being remade makes me strangely sad...

    If it's as good as the recent remakes of Pscyho, Red Dawn, Total Recall, Bad News Bears, The Karate Kid, Arthur, Planet of the Apes & Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; sign me up!!!!

    The trailer is horrible. More trash reboots from Hollywood...... shocker. They have gotten to be a real lazy bunch out there.

    There's zero risk to my money. Never seen a remake (other than when stuck on a flight where that was all they were showing) and never will.

    Not really a remake.. its Rusty taking his family to WallyWorld. Still, I won't see unless Rotten Tomatoes gets up to 70

    More evidence that Hollyweird is completely out of ideas.

    If those were the funniest parts of the film shown in the trailer, I'll pass.
