SUMMER RENTAL (Theatrical Release USA 1985)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

Summer Rental—original and fun beach movie—shows John Candy in good comedic form. WOW! This is such a simple story but it earns its watch. It has been put together well and deserves its resurrection from the 1980s. Look for the late Rip Torn in one of his earlier works. The downside of the movie is the completely blunt conclusion as if the writers could not come up with an easier conclusion rather than this rock hard ending  The film serves as a good watch for the teen/adult share.
