“The eighties was a decade of film brilliance. Not Academy Awards maybe, or deeply intriguing movies but instead R-Rated, ridiculous, fun, pompous, films that were just not thought provoking but instead FUN!! What was R-Rated back then would be barely a PG today which also reflects the kind of society we have turned into. Enter u0026quot;The Great OutDoorsu0026quot; with fellow Canadian comedians who knew comedy unlike no one has since. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDan Akroyd and John Candy are just great. They arenu0026#39;t brilliant actors (although Dan has shown some promise in great movies such as The Arrow and My Girl) but instead they can get together to deliver laughs and they do. The Great Outdoors is the quintessential eighties film about a family on vacation. Itu0026#39;s about the desire to succeed and BUY STUFF (an eighties must.) Itu0026#39;s about who is the better man, and man vs nature and all that kind of stuff. More importantly it delivers the perfect blend of physical comedy AND one liners that actually made me laugh out loud. Akroyd and Candy play like a stand up comedy act and it works so well that you forget everyone else. They really donu0026#39;t add or take away from the story, you just forget anyone else is there…it doesnu0026#39;t really matter much. Youu0026#39;re in this to see Chet and Roman battle it out mostly behind each otheru0026#39;s backs. The cinematography is great in this movie as well. They used an actual lake although it was in California, not Wisconsin and it really helps the setting. You feel as though youu0026#39;re roughing it out right beside them. The best part is the climax with the bear, what a great scene. As predictable as you might think it is…itu0026#39;s just awesome. Candy is hilarious and sadly missed in future endeavours. Akroyd pulls off the pompous, greedy and loud mouthed lawyer type to a T and manages to not take himself too seriously. As with all eighties films they manage to toss in the someone is in trouble, everyone has to pull together and save them story ending but it works and this movie is without a doubt a classic, whether comedy or just film in general, it will always be remembered fondly. 8/10”
