About the Movie

When an unannounced, uninvited and unwelcome family of fun-loving misfits converge upon a lakeside resort to join their relatives for a summer of relaxation, the result is anything but restful in this raucous comedy starring Dan Aykroyd and John Candy. It's a vacationer's worst nightmare, as wheeler-dealer Aykroyd, his sexually repressed wife and eerie twin daughters "join" the easygoing Candy and his straight-laced clan for a season of "fun" in the sun. Unfortunately, the only thing these two in-laws have in common is their intense dislike for each other. Soon, it's brother-in-law against brother-in-law in an uproarious and hilarious fight to the finish to see which one really knows how to enjoy The Great Outdoors.

this movie is a classic you won't be dissapointed. from the creepy twin to the crazy in-laws to the ever crowd pleasing Bald headed Bear hahaha, this is the best movie ever

The Great Outdoors.

I couldn't agree more with the review from "luvmeanspain." The antics of the cast of human and animal characters were a riot!!

Really is something special

There is something about this movie that is just pure magic. Puts a smile on my face every time i see it (and i have seen it prob about 50 times lol) My holidays as a kid were never as crazy as this, but still, this movie makes me nostelgic for those days again. A great family movie!
