Storyline

Roger (Taran Killam), a strait-laced politician has big plans to propose to his dream girl (Gillian Jacobs) at her family's lake house. But everything goes awry when he meets his potential brother-in-law Todd (Bobby Moynihan): a full-time camp counselor with a heart of gold and a wild sense of fun, pining to be Roger's best friend, and ultimately catapulting him into a series of unfortunate events. As Roger tries to take a stand amidst outrageous fishing excursions, propulsive water jetpacks and American history-themed musicals, he realizes that being a part of a new family may be more difficult than he'd thought.

Honestly Funny
10 September 2016 | by hi_im_manicSee all my reviews

This film is genuinely funny, but not at all side-aching hilarious. The humor isn't forced down ones throat. There's plenty of laughs to be had and the film seems content to allow the audience to laugh at one thing or another rather than at designated points. I found a great deal of the humor weak and poorly conveyed, but there were certain things which I couldn't help chuckling. This one felt like the regurgitation of Meet The Fockers, from 2004. Lorne Micheals of SNL is the producer, he's a comedy master with a laughter resume spanning decades. Thus, I expected greater production value. It was good to see Keenan Thompson, a favorite of mine since childhood (Nickleodeon's All That). He had a very minor role but was easily recognizable despite the crazy hair-do that they gave him here.
