Wiping bugs in your face is disgusting. Catbutts however, I think we've all done that.

They are small. It's like catching a lady bug. You haven't lived until you've done it! Of course that was when I was a kid and not scared of anything. Now days might be a little different! [Smile]

It's that time again for a handful of viewings of this movie. I think I might have to watch it this weekend sometime. For me, summers = up north vacations. This movie is just perfect when you are longing for nights on the lake.

I went into the 1979 and older board and the spam was at least 6 pages in. I stopped at page 6. Geez, how you get rid of these jerks?

No problem Muffy. Good call on double feature and I feel like a good third would be weekend at Bernie's! I didn't get to this movie yet, but this could be the weekend. Really wanting to watch it right now!!

Ya, I think the spam is really hurting the posting here. Things are slow, that's for sure.

With summer almost here, I've started to think about this movie a lot. It's a tradition to watch this movie every year around this time. It's also always with us when we rent a cabin up north in WI, in case we have a rainy day. This movie has become one of my all time favorites and can't wait to watch it again here soon.

Rewatched The Great Outdoors and while it´s not among my favorite Hughes films it has it´s moments.

I especially like the first 30 mins with Candy and Aykroyd firing on all cylinders.
After that it ´s not that funny and i´ve never been a big fan of animal humour so that doesn´t help.
I love Aykroyd´s laugh which they could´ve used more.

The production had it´s problems right from the get go.
Director Deutch said he was a wrong man for the job and Candy was upset because he had to shave his big beard which he thought was fitting for his character.

Hughes wanted to re-cut the film but Universal said there´s no time because the summer release was just around the corner.
The Great Outdoors did pretty well in the box office and has many devoted fans so who am i to blame it.

Good fun but not my first go to John Candy Summer movie (God I wish it was still Summer) as that's still got to be Summer Rental for me!

It is certainly likeable enough and i do have it in my collection but I agree Atomik that the laughs do peter out in the later stages of the movie.

You guys watch your mouth! This movie is perfect in every way. Ok maybe not but I do love it. I think the end of the movie gets a little off course. I don't love the mine scene with the bear. And of course the love story is awkward. I do, however, think there are several great laughs in the second half. I don't actually know where the second half would start, but the scene at the bar with Roman and Chet is so great. "I have to go introduce "Mr Thick $%# to Mr Urinal Cake." "Go find yourself a spin cycle!" The bat scene! The old 96er! Either way, this movie is one that really connects with me. One of my all time favorites.

Oh yeah, I like Summer Rental quite a bit too. I think for me, Great Outdoors just really hits home. Because my vacations in the summer are heading up north to a lake usually, Great Outdoors makes me feel nostalgic. Plus it's supposed to take place in my home state of Wisconsin!

I love the trivia you have for all these Hughes movies, Atomik. You're really selling that book!
