" First Viewing Viewing Date: May 6th Via: iTunes Store Plot: An overworked air-traffic controller takes his family on a beach vacation in Florida, but the trip is soon beset by a series of mishaps. Rating: 6.3/10 Why Did I Watch It? A post on Facebook alerted me to this movie's existence. I like John Candy's comedies and I like comedies of this era, so I jumped on it before it disappeared from my radar."

BradWesley123โ€™s Movie Journal- May 2021 (35 movies items)

" HBO Max- 1hr. 26min. First Viewing There's nothing special about Summer Rental. It's just an easy, breezy, exceedingly simplistic 80s flick with an episodic plot that feels padded at just 86 minutes long. The jokes are clear, the filmmaking is obvious; it's stupid as hell. But it worked for me. Best viewed during, you guessed it, the Summer."

"After air traffic controller Jack Chester loses a plane (it's covered on his screen by a fly), he's told to take a break. Jack books his family into a plush resort in Florida, but it turns out that their lodgings are in a hut by the beach, and that's as good as the vacation gets. An early comedy vehicle for John Candy in what was his first leading role. He comes across affably as the parent whose determination to please his family usually ends in disaster. The movie loses marks in the script an"
