March 6, 2007
This is a real mess, with out-of-focus shots and continuity lapses that suggest a production in chaos.
March 6, 2007
Packing all the tired trappings of the raunchy road-trip genre, this loutish comedy plays out as a loosely threaded collection of shrill jokes and cliched sight gags.
April 17, 2004
The direction on Johnson Family Vacation is numbingly slack; the synapses between the scenes don't spark effortlessly, as they should, and the whole enterprise feels dragged-down and belabored.
April 12, 2004
Big disappointment.
April 9, 2004
Single-handedly saving a movie may be a tall order for a short-legged clown, but Cedric the Entertainer is the best (and probably only) reason to take this Vacation.
April 9, 2004
This family vacation runs out of gas long before its destination.
April 9, 2004
If laughs are the currency of any comedy, then this one pays minimum wage.
April 8, 2004
Vacations are supposed to make you feel better, and Johnson Family Vacation does just that.
April 8, 2004
Sub-Griswold stuff.
April 8, 2004
Johnson Family Vacation is simply a bad trip.
April 8, 2004
It's a sign of trouble when watching a movie prompts nostalgia for the movie it's ripping off, particularly when that movie wasn't any good.
April 7, 2004
A wheezing contraption, which strands Cedric the Entertainer behind the wheel and forces him to motor a collection of laugh-and-learn wacky situations by sheer force of his outsize charm.
April 7, 2004
An African-American road trip that mostly squanders some very gifted performers.
April 7, 2004
Moviegoers hankering for another installment in Chevy Chase's vacation series may get a quick fix from Johnson Family Vacation. Just don't expect the film to add anything to the time-worn vacation-from- hell genre.
April 7, 2004
Passable, uninspired entertainment, as harmless as watching home movies of your own vacation -- and about as exciting.
April 7, 2004
A comedy with a couple of big laughs but many more missed opportunities.
April 7, 2004
Apart from Williams' presence, director Christopher Erskin's feature debut isn't worth the price of submission.
April 7, 2004
Johnson Family Vacation, a played-out spin on the old Chevy Chase Vacation movies, is one of those bombs that makes you sit and curse the darkness.
April 7, 2004
Things feel choppy and unfinished, and there are signs of desperate, post-production efforts to do a quick fix -- badly looped dialogue, awkwardly inserted closeups, too much music.
April 7, 2004
Cedric the Entertainer stars in a long drive in search of a family comedy, which is found too late and amounts to too little.
