Big-hearted Chicago family man Chet has brought his family to a lakeside resort area, and although his wife and kids aren't quite as excited as he is, Chet has high hopes for the vacation. However, his optimism is sabotaged when his obnoxious brother-in-law Roman drops in unexpectedly, along with his snooty, strange family. Chet and his family try to stay open-minded, but they find it difficult to relax and enjoy themselves because of the constant annoyance of Roman's presence. Written by

The scene where Chet and Roman are trying to catch the Bat, The Bat lands on Chet's face and Roman (Dan Aykroyd) hits it with his broom weapon, the bat falls on the floor and Roman screams out: "We got it, We got it." Dan Aykroyd uses that same line in Ghostbusters (1984) after catching the Slimer in the Hotel. He comes out with the trap screaming: "We got it, We got it". See more »

You wouldn't know a good time if it fell out of the sky and landed on your face and started to wiggle!

Subtitled conversation between two raccoons -- Raccoon #1: "Why's Jody sitting in the lake?" Raccoon #2: "You didn't hear? She got shot in the ass!" Raccoon #1: "Oh no! Don't tell me..." Raccoon #2: "Yup... She's bald on both ends now!" See more »
This is another of those movie that just don't get old. I saw it for the first time probably at about 7 or 8 years old, and I remember being amused by the water skiing and the raccoons. It's amazing that I've grown up with movies such as this and National Lampoon's European Vacation, and then start to actually "get" the grown up jokes. This is one of my favorite comedies.
