"Summer Rental" is the kind of movie that could make you wish you had poison ivy -- at least the scratching would occupy your mind.
A slight family vacation comedy.
A mediocre, predictable comedy.
John Candy almost manages to save this one. Almost.
Pleasant, forgettable Candy vehicle
Reiner hasn't used Hughes to his full potential.
It's juvenile, silly and flaws... but.. it's a comedy with John Candy! So, hey...give it one chance.
"This has to be one of my favorite John Candy films. I have many. He's a big favorite of mine.
While on a forced vacation with his family, Jack becomes fast enemies with the towns sailing legend Al. When Al seeks out to ruin Jack and his families vacation, Jack decides to get back at Al by entering the sailing competition to win the trophy that Al has won for many, many years. A lot of hilarity happens inbetween all of this with lots of laughs that the entire family would enjoy. I love these great comedies from the 80's. They were just so easy and didn't try so hard. See it if you get the chance."
Jack Chester (John Candy) takes his family to the beach on a summer vacation resort in Florida. While on this vacation, Mr. Chester and his family will encounter tough times, make new friends, and much more. All of these events have something in common: They're hilarious!
While I was watching "Summer Rental," I could tell that it just had an average script and that in all ways it should've just been an average movie, but John Candy's hilarious antics make this one a keeper for comedy fans. There are many different parts of "Summer Rental" that you'll always remember once you see them such as when an attractive woman asks John Candy for an honest opinion, and when Candy goes on the beach for the first time and tries to avoid many obstacles.
Not only is "Summer Rental" hilarious, it also has other redeeming qualities such as the adventure that Mr. Chester (John Candy) and his family go on close to the end of the film. To make it short, if you like hilarious comedy movies, I definitely recommend getting "Summer Rental." You'll want to keep this movie for more than just a rental. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2001. John Candy's an all-time great.
A nice funny summer movie with John Candy and his family at a vacation resort and a memorable yaht race. It's lighthearted and fun.
