Chet Ripley just wants to have a nice time with his family in their lakeside cabin. When his yuppie brother-in-law, Roman, shows up that plan goes out the window. Chet will spend the rest of his vacation just trying to survive, whether we’re talking water skis, bears, or 96 oz steaks. It’s The Great Outdoors!
Let’s say you hit an animal in the woods. Do you lash it to the roof of the car and bring it home? Well, if you enjoy roadkill cuisine… sure! But if you’re the Henderson family returning home from a camping trip, you’ll either come to regret that decision… or you might just have your life changed by it.
