Christina Applegate loved playing Debbie Griswold, a slutty alcoholic (her words not ours) turned soccer mom, in Vacation. But one things for sure, Debbie is no Kelly, as in Bundy. Applegate told us while audiences love reminiscing about her moronic character from Married With Children, and might find some similarities between the two, that was certainly not the case.

“I don’t think that she has anything to do with KB, Debbie is not a moron, she’s just a slutty alcoholic,” Applegate joked to HipHollywood. “We talked about the fact that I wanted her to have a life and a story and I wanted her to have an edge … I want to have some fun and I love doing ridiculous things and I’m pretty much game for anything, so thats really where that came from.”

A reboot of the 1983 film, National Lampoon’s Vacation, the film follows Ed Helms, who plays a grown up Rusty Griswold, as he takes his family on a trip across the country to WallyWold. Helms told us he was a huge fan of the original starring Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo. “I just loved how this one fit right into the Griswold mythology and it was exciting to create this new generation and whole new step forward.”

Vacation, which also stars Leslie Mann and Chris Hemsworth is in theaters July 29th.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
