The Great Outdoors

Howard Deutch's comedy The Great Outdoors comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. Spanish subtitles are accessible and the English soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include production notes, talent bios, and a theatrical trailer. Genre enthusiasts and fans of John Candy will want to give this disc a look, but there may not be enough here to interest the average DVD collector.

This movie is full of side-splitting humor... it will definitely tickle your funny bone! John Candy and Dan Ackroyd really take this comedy to the top! Great escapism!!
