The Great Outdoors (1988)

From the John Hughes stable of films, The Great Outdoors is fun but a little silly in places mainly due to an OTT performance from Dan Aykroyd.

However the always likable John Candy is on hand to add warmth and a more subtle humour to proceedings. Although a few set pieces are good this lacks the laugh out loud moments of an Uncle Buck or Home Alone.

Special guest star Bart the Bear and some playful Raccoons naturally steal the show.

It's a while since i've watched this and for a PG i was surprised how much swearing and sexual references were in it.
