John Candy plays a burned-out air-traffic controller, John Chester, who takes his family on a vacation to Florida where everything imaginable goes wrong--and occasionally right as well. Summertime follies lead to a clash with the smug owner of his shabby rental. Improbably but delightfully, this results in a boat race that may bring his put-upon family together and bandage Chester's wounded honor. This 1980s comedy is bolstered by its atypically fine performances, not least Rip Torn as a pirate.
