Did You Know?


The group that Conrad joins is based off of ATWA(animals,trees, water and air). See more »


As the trivia section states: "Charles Manson has been imprisoned since late 1969. Assuming 40-year-old Conrad was conceived before Manson was imprisoned, this film must take place in 2010 or earlier." However, when they go to El Coyote restaurant, there is a billboard for the movie THOR clearly displayed in the background. Thor was released in mid-2011. See more »


Conrad: I bring up Charles Manson and you freak out.
Nick: Everybody freaks out when you bring up Charles Manson!

Nice easy to watch movie
20 October 2015 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

Don't watch it if you expect it to be a thriller like it is categorized in because it's absolutely not a thriller. Not even a little bit. I wonder why they put it in the thriller category, must be a mistake or maybe we don't have the same definition when it comes down to thrillers. Nor is it a real comedy even though Linas Phillips made me laugh more then a couple times. His laugh is just funny and I could not stop myself laughing when he was. It's a drama with some funny moments. It deserves more then it's actual ratings on IMDb. For me a movie always deserves at least a seven when I don't get bored for a second. And with Manson Family Vacation it was the case. It's an easy to watch movie, much better then some crap that are higher rated on here.
