Great Family Picture

by Tiki on 9/25/2006

John Candy was at his finest in this movie. He has the down home personality of a middle class father that everyone would enjoy in a father. Humor and lessons in life are the main themes. Love the skiing scene when John forgets the lesson he just taught his youngest son, to drop the rope when in trouble. The side plots have warmth with the older son venturing out a new relationship with his first girlfriend. Even Dan Aykroyd gives a lesson on investing in the stock market. Something for everyone, as when John's wife discovers the joy of a new use for the clothes washer. A must see for all John Candy fans. Movies just aren't the same without him. Have seen this movie many times and laugh as hard each time I see it, as I did the first time. Read More

Editors Note
Note Two brothers-in-law, whose only shared trait is their intense dislike for one another, set off on a comic misadventure when their two families share a summer vacation home.
Plot Summary
Summary Chet is a father and husband who believes in spending quality time with his loved ones. When vacation roles around, he gathers his gang together and they head for the hills. But as soon as the crew gets comfortable in their cabin, Chet's annoyingly bad-mannered brother-in-law Roman shows up with his spoiled wife and kids for a week-long visit. To make matters worse, Roman brings more than his family -- he brings Murphy's Law with him, as he turns the week into a succession of disasters.
