in need of smarter writing
6 December 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

It's July 4th weekend. Various families of different ethnicities arrive at camping site 16. A paper work mistake left the three families stuck with one camp ground. They try to share at first but tension rises. The ranger suggests a competition for the winner to stay and kicking out the other two families.

The premise has possibilities until the lazy competition idea is injected into the script. I don't know much about Fred Wolf but he seems to be the head SNL writer for awhile. This has that silly skit pitch concept that he and David Spade expanded into a full movie. At least, Spade is not acting in this. Instead of trying for smart inter-racial writing, they go for cheap jokes that don't really work and a clunky concept. The directing is poor and the writing is muddled. There is a repetitiveness to scenes with two characters coming to some profound understanding of race and life. In addition, I don't want to watch Charlie Sheen anymore although this has a few good comedians. The kids could have been a good way to contrast the generations but they aren't particularly effective actors. There are too many characters and this is in need of some smarter writing.
