Blatant Ripoff of National Lampoon's Vacation


So obvious. The most obvious thing was how the mom from this movie looked just like Beverly D'Angelo from Vacation. I actually think the producers of this movie sat down and said, "Okay, how can we make a Vacation clone?"

You are so far off on your analysis that I have to wonder if you've even seen these movies.

Not... Even... Close.

Or perhaps you are confused on the meaning of "clone"...?

That means an exact replica of something.

These two movies are nothing alike in plot, humor type, storyline, setting, etc....

reply

Nope.

In what alternate universe is this a vacation clone?

no

I thought it was a hybrid child of the Great Outdoors mixed with the underdog story of Caddyshack

It is more like One Crazy Summer, or more so, one crazy summer is like this.
