Dad the Hero On Vacation
Jim Cummins (Jamey Sampley) only has one vacation a year. But with a carefully planned schedule, he should be able to drive to California and back with his family in ten days.
However, a lot happens along the way that is not on his schedule — bank robbers, speeding tickets, snakes, a bear, and…
When Jim finds himself locked behind bars in a remote county jail, ran by a laid-back sheriff’s department, he starts to look at his vacation plans through new eyes.
Will Jim and his family make it to California?
Follow the Cummins family on this hilarious family comedy across the states as they learn how important family relationships truly are.
Here is a story a lot of families will relate to. Jim Cummins takes his family on vacation to California but he is so worried about money that he doesn’t relax, and won’t let them relax either. He inadvertently winds up in jail. He finally realizes his tense attitude is spoiling everyone’s fun and he decides his family should enjoy the vacation so he lightens up.
The movie features humorous moments, such as a bear in the park coming up behind Jim’s wife and she thinks it is Jim. In another scene a man who looks like a middle-aged hippie with long hair plays a guitar and then stops and pulls a wig off and he is bald. In addition to the humor, the film features a couple who rob a bank and they are forced to face the music. And it’s because the family comes together that the couple is stopped.
This movie definitely shows the importance of family and we are pleased to award our Dove Seal to this film for all ages. The very young might not enjoy it as much but kids seven and up will have fun with it. It’s a family movie with a family message and that’s a neat thing.
