With the 2010 fourteen minute short film of the Griswold’s on their Hotel Hell Vacation, which premiered during the Super Bowl, I was excited to see Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo reprise their roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold.  After all, it’s been 13 years since we have last seen the Griswold’s, which was in 1997’s Vegas Vacation.  This comedy film takes place at a hotel and is directed by Bryan Buckley.This short film features Clark and Ellen driving in an old-fashioned station wagon to visit their son, Rusty (played by Travis Greer).  On the way there, they decide to make a stop at a very fancy hotel called Le Grand Connard.  When they arrive there, the valet parking attendant overcharges them, moves their vehicle only about 1 inch (basically leaving it parked right in front of the hotel instead of moving it to a parking spot) and kicks the door to close it.  Once they get inside to check in, the Receptionist begins offering them a bunch of unnecessary things before checking them into the Napoleon suite, which is a very small room.  After sitting down, Ellen hooks up the webcam on her laptop to talk to their son, Rusty, who can see behind his mother, Ellen, is Clark, who happens to be taking a shower and Rusty can see his father’s privates.  Being fed up, they decide to check out.  As they are checking out, the Receptionist (played by Robert Stephenson) begins to overcharge them.  He even charges them for complementary water, water that is supposed to be free.  The Griswold’s head out on to visit their son Rusty.One aspect of the filmmaking which I liked was the acting.  The acting I am referring to is from the Receptionist.  I always find it amusing when the person behind the counter is an ignorant jackass as it makes the scene much funnier.The other aspect of the filmmaking which I liked was the set design.  I liked how the Napoleon suite not only had a low ceiling, but also the square feet of the room itself was very small.My overall feeling about this short film is that it wasn’t bad, but at the same time, it wasn’t that great either.  In other words, it was fair.  Overall, not a bad fourteen minute film at all.
