Audience Reviews for Last Resort

Last Resort manages to be one of those ultra-rare 80's films that I just cannot fully enjoy. Businessman George Lollar (Charles Grodin in a very bland role) has finally let his stress get the best of him so he abruptly signs up for a vacation to a "Club Sand" resort package and flies his family, consisting of wife Robin Pearson Rose, estranged son Scott Nemes, and whiny daughter Megan Mullally (from Will & Grace in an unrecognizable role...until you hear her voice), out to the secluded vacation spot. It's not long before the family realizes they have taken the vacation from hell as everyone around them seems to be loony, the island is inhabited by a peculiar number of soldiers, not to mention guerrillas. The people at the resort, consisting of a bevy of then-rising talent like Jon Lovitz, Mario Van Peebles, and John Ashton are comical when they do pop up (especially Peebles, who is hilarious in the few small moments he has in this) however they are mostly wasted in this horribly unfunny movie. At barely 80 minutes, I couldn't wait for this to end. We've seen this tried and true plot carried out MUCH better in other 80's films. What a waste of good talent.

Charles Grodin is the poor man's Chevy Chase as he takes his family on a hellish summer vacation to a resort located on an island that's primed to be overrun by guerrillas. Has numerous surreal and ridiculous moments, co-stars a young Megan Mullally of Will & Grace Fame as Grodin's daughter, strange to realize she's actually much cuter as she's aged. Worth a rental.
