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.

You'll be laughing all 'week'
27 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

DAD'S WEEK OFF is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen in my entire life. I saw it one day on the movie channel. It's about a computer salesman named Jack [Henry Winkler] who decides he needs some time off from his family so his family leaves him home alone for a week. His week starts off nice and quiet until his working buddy named Bernie [Richard Jeni of THE MASK] shows up. Pretty soon it's party time at Jack's place. The movie has little plot, but tons of laughs which mostly come from the wacky antics of Bernie. This is probably the best made-for-cable movie I have ever seen.
