No one is going to forget the original films, and yet the concept is so broad that it can easily be remade to fit our modern times. And while he has yet to really prove that he can carry a film on his own, the casting of Ed Helms as Clark Griswold makes a lot of sense. Add Christina Applegate as Clark’s wife, Ellen, and you got yourself a new “Vacation” series. This should be a slam dunk, right? Well…
