Vacation nightmares take a whole new meaning in the new comedy Vacation, starring Ed Helms and Christina Applegate. A sequel to the original classic with Chevy Chase, Ed plays a grown-up Rusty Griswold who tries to freshen things up in his life by driving his family to Walley World.
As you can imagine, complete hijinks ensue, so we decided to ask Christina, Ed, and Skylar Gisondo to play a little game of Never Have I Ever — with a vacation twist.
Has the airline ever lost your luggage?
Have you ever lost your cellphone on vacation?
Have you ever gotten food poisoning on vacation?
Ed: Oh my God. In the biggest way.
BuzzFeed: I feel like there's a story there.
Ed: It was when we were shooting Hangover 2 in Thailand. It was week one and I was just weirdly confident about eating everything and I ate street food in Bangkok.
Christina: Oh my God, come on now. Common sense, friends.
Ed: Common sense. I thought I was going to die. I remember I called the director and was like, "I don't know, I think I have to go to the hospital" and he was like, "Your call time is in 20 minutes." I did whole scenes in that movie beyond sick.
Have you ever missed a flight?
Ed: I'm trying to remember a terrible — oh, just a couple of weeks ago I missed a flight. I was going to a small town in the Rockies and I was connecting through Phoenix. Missed the flight, had to drive from Phoenix to the place — eight hours. But silver lining: stunningly beautiful drive.
