Description

Summer vacations, cabin trips, lakeside living, nature walks, and spending time with family are enough to make the most cynical Shat The Movies listener nostalgic. On this Fathers Day recording, we visit John Candy's "The Great Outdoors," a classic '80s comedy that holds a dear place in many a heart.

Brothers Adam, Josh, and John R. commissioned "The Great Outdoors" in honor of their late father and the childhood memories they built with him. Big D related to being a dad. Ash contrasted the idyllic mood of the movie with her own childhood vacations. And Gene was taken back to his summer fantasies of meeting a mean girl in a denim jacket.

Of course, the Shat Crew also covers The 96er, the endless animal gags, Dan Aykroyd's oddly enjoyable performance, and bear dumps. But the real meat of this movie is laughing at jokes and situations that work BECAUSE we've seen them—and lived them— so many times.
