    Synopsis


    Summer Rental
    This routine comedy is about a series of misadventures during a family vacation at the beach and stars John Candy (who died of a heart attack while filming in Mexico in 1994) as John Chester and Karen Austin as his long-suffering wife Sandy. When the family leave for what turns out to be a pretty decrepit shack on a public beach, Jack eventually locks horns with the owner of this dubious piece of real estate, and their conflict terminates in a boat race in which Jack and his motley crew are at first glance, and even second, no match for the others in the race. In the meantime, there are plenty of skits with Jack dressed as anything from an ample, unintentional likeness of a geisha to the normal tourist dude in a Hawaiian shirt. His wife and daughter tackle their own problems, related to sex in one way or another, mostly another. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

      Not One of Candy's Best

      I'm a big John Candy fan, but was never overwhelmingly enticed by this film. It has its moments, but they just don't come often enough, and not nearly with the comedic timing he displays in so many of his other features. Still, I'm sure there's people who enjoy this one.

      What a funny man John Candy was and is. One of his best movies. Stick it to that snob.
