Unexpectedly, with Christmas just around the corner, the crude and perpetually unemployed Cousin Eddie Johnson, from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989), wins a worry-free, all-inclusive vacation to a breathtaking tropical island in the South Pacific. However, after a seemingly innocuous boat trip, Eddie's family--along with the heartbroken, Audrey Griswold; the equally sad, Uncle Nick, and the lovely guide, Muka Laka Miki--end up marooned on a deserted islet in the middle of nowhere. Now, it's Eddie's chance to shine. Can he pull off the perfect Christmas out of nothing? Written by Nick Riganas

Horrendous Waste of Time...I was Embarrased
31 December 2003 | by milky-4See all my reviews

I sat through all 2 hours. I do not know what was worse, the awful plot, the lame characters or the hawaiian hottie that Eddie's 11 yearold kid and 80 year old grandpa made sexual advances toward. The money spent on this was just flushed down the throne. Matty Simmons should be ashamed. The original idea for this movie was "A Swiss Family Griswold" and it somehow turned into this mess. The only bright spot is that it's ratings were so bad we will never see this on TV again. AVOID AT ALL COSTS...RENT ERNEST SAVES XMAS or something else.
