Storyline

Greg Van Waspish, feeling that there's more to life than spending day after day working in the city, decides one day to pack up the family and move out to the wilderness. The family, not having been consulted in this move, takes to their new life very reluctantly, but eventually get used to life in the great outdoors. This film also includes parody previews to three non-existant movies. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

This is the 3rd most entertaining comedy I have ever rented!
20 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

It starts off with the glum withdraw of city & suburban life for this family and parents desire to make it better by going to the country, BUT they are not ready (all except little Billy) for the unexpected! Try for example a GAY INDIAN (ABSOLUTE FICTION)!!!

If you watch this catch the line (Oh you poor deer..).... I don't promise you will like it, but Ido promise you will find it unique and in the spirit of Airplane! Sean Richard McCarthy
