Great family movie, John Candy is at his best as a Chicago air controller forced to take his family on vacation to Florida. Rip Torn is also great as a one-handed modern day "pirate" who becomes Candy's drinking buddy and sailing instructor. Just a well-done comedy with many good lines, nothing to offend (well, hardly nothing) anyone in the family.
Summer Rental is a classic John Candy movie. It has lots of gags and a great story about a family on a beach vacation. Rip Torn is excellent as the restaurant owner/skipper. Its a very funny movie...a must see.
John Candy was a brilliant comedic actor. His talent shines in this movie. This is a cute movie about a family that goes on vacation for the summer. Everything that can go wrong... does go wrong. The movie has some very funny parts. It also has a couple of slow parts that are easy enough to overlook. The script could have been a bit tighter... a bit better. But all in all, I'd say this was a very good movie.
This is a very good funny family movie. I love to watch this when I' not feeling well It all ways cheers me up. If you have not ever seen it, it has John Candy in it and I always liked him. I have this movie on vhs, but it is starting to wear out, so I thought I would replace it on DVD. I searched everywhere for it at retail stores but was unlucky. When all else fails I go to e-bay. I was very skeptical at first to buy a DVD on line, but I asked a few question and I am so glad I bought this DVD. It is a first rate DVD. I bought it for a real great price. I will shop with this seller again. In fact I have. The product is just what they say and I'm very happy with that. I have already watched it a few times; it is a nice feel good movie.
I always liked John Candy, his movies are generally hits with many comical parts as this one is. This story is becomming dated but still lots of laughs. It's still a fun family movie with vacation experiences many can relate to. A family takes a vacation getting away from the city to stay at the beach. Of course they end up in a rental that is a dump, nothing like they expected. After adjusting they begin to truly enjoy their surroundings, meeting interesting people, sharing experiences. They begin to reflect on what's really important in life, being together. They take on a sailing challenge against the local, arrogant tycoon and win! Fun movie.
