Brief Synopsis: "Suburbanite Chet Ripley takes his family to a lakeside resort for what he thinks will be a quiet vacation away from it all. But then his snobby brother-in-law Roman Craig shows up with his snooty brood, and unexpected mishaps ensue. The two families try to get along … but they didn't count on Mother Nature stepping in to add her two cents."
