Movie

It’s vacation time for outdoorsy Chicago man Chet Ripley, along with his wife, Connie, and their two sons. But a serene weekend of fishing at a Wisconsin lakeside cabin gets crashed by Connie’s obnoxious brother-in-law, Roman Craig; his wife, Kate and their two daughters. As the excursion wears on, the Ripleys find themselves at odds with the stuffy Craig family.
