More Powerful than Schindler's List and Godfather combined
In some ways, I feel cheated that I missed out on this movie for so many years. At the same time, I cannot help but thank life for letting me experience the beauty and genius contained in this film; its power has purified and prepared my soul for eternity. It centers around Saget and his son as they enjoy a summer scout trip on an island off the coast of California. Rather than using this time to bond with his son, Saget views the trip as a chance crack wise and to vent his feelings of failure as both a father and a man. The movie quickly degrades into a shameless exhibition of pathos as Saget himself embodies the role of an emasculated man-child, delivering the viewer a performance that is not likely to be surpassed in greatness in our lifetime. By the movie's end, even Saget's teenage son has become so uncomfortable with his father's inadequacies as a human that he would sooner leave the island than to be further associated with the abomination that God gave him as a father. With powerful supporting performances from legends like Tackleberry from "Police Academy", Susan from "Seinfeld", and annoying, fat man, from "Alien Fury: Countdown to Invasion" this movie serves as a tribute to every soldier who has given their live defending our country and right to make movies of such importance to humanity.
