Storyline

A computer salesman charged with marketing a tiny computer that no one can operate faces hypertension when he realizes that there is no way to sell the product and he is likely to lose his job. So he can get some rest, his wife offers to take their two kid's camping for a week. When his fellow salesman and best friend is fired and thrown out of his house by his wife, he moves in and immediately starts unending parties which ultimately ends up the house on fire and Winkler arrested on multiple charges. In between, in a drug-induced stupor, he gets mixed up with a ditzy blonde who wants to marry him and rescue her child from being raised by her parents.

This movie was great. Henry Winkler (a.k.a "The Fonz") as Jack begins a week on his couch hoping to relax, but when Jacks friend, a fired co-worker, brings friends to Jack's house, a woman named Cherice (Olivia d'Abo) drags him from the couch to car chases, jail breaks, gang fights, and other troubling situations he hadn't expected of his relaxing week. In this movie you will see things go from good to bad to the worst. This movie is definitely one of National Lampoon's top movies, I think that some of the later National Lampoon movies have been a little shabby, but this one holds up the name of comic excellence. If you have a chance rent this movie you will not be disappointed, by the way, you will only find it on the VHS section because there is currently not a DVD available.
