Overview

This routine comedy is about a series of misadventures during a family vacation at the beach and stars John Candy who died of a heart attack while filming in Mexico in 1994 as John Chester and Karen Austin as his long-suffering wife Sandy. When the family leave for what turns out to be a pretty decrepit shack on a public beach, Jack eventually locks horns with the owner of this dubious piece of real estate, and their conflict terminates in a boat race in which Jack and his motley crew are at first glance, and even second, no match for the others in the race. In the meantime, there are plenty of skits with Jack dressed as anything from an ample, unintentional likeness of a geisha to the normal tourist dude in a Hawaiian shirt. His wife and daughter tackle their own problems, related to sex in one way or another, mostly another.

    John Candy Favorite

    If you like John Candy you will love this movie. An air controller taking his family on a long awaited vacation to a beach house in Florida. I couldn't stop laughing at the woman who had her breasts enlarged and then was so insecure, she had to show them to everyone (but never to the viewer) she met to get their opinion. Rip Torn was also great as the sea faring restaurant owner. Great movie for the whole family.
