This movie must have been a hell of a lot of fun to be working on the set of. You get a beautiful tropical setting and a cast full of very funny, talented actors and comedians. You get Robin Williams working with nearly the entire cast of SCTV and a few fun SNL faces(Mary Gross, Robin Duke, and Brian Doyle-Murray) and veteran Peter O'Toole thrown in for good measure, all under the direction of another SCTV veteran, Harold Ramis. It is a lot of fun seeing these people work together.
Unfortunately, the film lacks in everything else. There is almost no plot and what there is of a plot consists of going on vacation and then being there, and thats it. The diolouge could have been written by anybody and the characters are not exactly thrilling. Had this film not included such great comic actors, this film would have been an absolute disaster. I cannot recommend this film, but the cast does make it watchable, if it isn't worth watching.
