Transcript for Christina Applegate Stars in Hilarious New 'Vacation' Movie
? Well, the griswolds are great, Christina Applegate tars in the hilarious movie "Vacation" and recently stopped by to tell us about the reboot of the comedy classic chronicling the Griswold family's misadventures on a cross country trip back to wally world and this time hitting the road in a very special vehicle. Take a look. Look what your dad rented. That's a 2015 tartan prancer. Did you say tartan. Yeah, tartan is the Honda of Albania but this baby is pretty sweet. All the latest ail bane yon technology. Check it out. Plug-in hybrid. Eco friendly. Any time we run out of juice, we can pull right over and plug in. I don't know what that is. I've never seen an outlet for that. Hmm. And hilarity ensues. I have to ask, though, because the vacation, I mean the original griswolds, such a part of our childhood. What was it like when you got the call you would be playing the next version of the grist walls. First you go you don't touch that. You know, I know there are a lot of fans out there -- I know you are all up in arms. You don't touch that of the you don't remake that. I had the same reaction but then I started Reading the script and it was like its own entity. Part of what distinguishing it, I love that Chris Hemsworth plays your very well to do and well endowed -- Well to do -- well to do. What was it like working with "People" magazine's sexiest man of the yooer. The first day of shooting he and Leslie came out of the house and did this thing with his jeans and I went, oh, he's dialed in. He is so good. I was so excited. I was like, oh, let's see what you can do, buddy. I mean I think he stole every scene he was in. Such a great movie and it's funny. We were talking about family vacations. I understand you have a very funny personal or interesting unique family vacation. Your mother took you to. My mom -- just my mom and me when I was growing up so we didn't go on like road trips because we spent enough time just of two of us but I was about 8 or 9 and she -- we drove to Tijuana and that was it. Nothing says family like Tijuana. Take your 8-year-old to Tijuana day. Do you know what I mean? Like. Check that off the box. It was memorable. It was memorable. You made a name for yourself, of course, on "Married with children" playing Kelly but I got to say here in this studio we're pretty big fans of Veronica cornerstone. "Anchorman 3." If they were to do it that entire cast would be there in two seconds. All their millions and just go and do 3. I love it. Give the people one reason, what's the big reason to go see "Vacation" this summer. We want to make you laugh and I think we accomplished that. I truly believe that. Christina Applegate, thanks, as always for stopping by. And "Vacation" opens in theaters tomorrow.
