Description by

When world-weary St. Louis banker and father Roger Hobbs (James Stewart) suggests to his wife (Maureen O'Hara) that the two of them enjoy a quiet vacation at the beach, she thinks a family reunion is a better idea. So they compromise - and no less than ten family members show up on their not-so-romantic getaway! From antiquated plumbing in the rental house to feuds between their married daughter and her husband to out-of-control kids and crazed teenage love, it begins to seem to Hobbs that getting back to the daily grind might bring relief from this "vacation."

Product Description:

Before National Lampoon was even invented, dream vacations were going awry -- here, a burned-out banker's beach rental features bizarre neighbors, children gone wild, and busted plumbing. Based on the novel by Edward Streeter.

Plot Synopsis:

Thanks to his family, Mr. Hobbs's life is about to get a lot more irritating.
His insistent wife, Peggy, convinces the fussy Midwest banker to pack up the kids and head for the Pacific shore for a summer vacation. In addition to their four children, the Hobbses also bring along their two married daughters' husbands and two grandchildren.
They arrive at a spooky cottage equipped with a mousetrap-like water pump. Then things turn worse. One daughter's egghead spouse splits. The other's horny hubby starts flirting with a babe on the beach. The youngest daughter has an inferiority complex due to her braces, and Hobbs' son thinks Dad's a dork.
Eventually Hobbs quits complaining about his clan and realizes Peggy's homilies about familial togetherness actually make sense.
