Family Holiday Films To Watch
When it comes to going on a vacation, most families have a hard time agreeing on where to go or how to spend this much-awaited for holiday. Dad may want to go somewhere where he can play golf and be involved in other outdoor activities and sports. Mom may want to work on her tan or simply relax under the sun with a book she has been meaning to read. And the kids will certainly love to be out in the sun all day and even in the night, swimming and frolicking on the beach or just simply staying outdoors.
Such predicaments are also the basic premises of many funny and enjoyable family vacation films. Whether these fictitious families are going on the beach or just going on a road trip, below are some of the most hilarious and enjoyable family holiday films you can watch at home, just by yourself or with the whole family, in no particular order:
Cheaper by the Dozen 2. The whole Baker family is on at a vacation at Lake Winnetka. While on vacation, the Bakers, lead by the head of the family Tom (Steve Martin), compete almost on a daily basis with the Murtaughs and a lot of wacky incidences ensue. The film ends with Nora, the eldest Baker, giving birth to Tom’s first grandchild while the Annual Labor Day Family cup match was taking place. In the end, the Bakers and Murtaughs end their conflict and both head of the families realize that they have a lot to be thankful for and be contended with.
RV. Robin Williams stars in this family holiday / road trip comedy. He stars as Bob Munro, a beverage company executive who is looking forward to a family holiday in Hawaii but instead ends up taking his family to Colorado via an RV to present a merger proposal for another company. The Munros aren’t the quintessential family everyone normally pictures and as such, several hilarious mishaps happen during their road trip. And just like any other family movies, Bob realizes that his life shouldn’t always be about his work and earning money and that the family is more important and should be his priority.
We’re the Millers. Though the Millers are only a fake family, David Clark (played by Jason Sudeikis) travels to Mexico with his fake wife, Rose (Jennifer Aniston) and two teenaged kids whom he hired to complete the clan. The main reason behind the family trip is to get a supply of and smuggle an RV-full load of marijuana. The whole family trip, from beginning to end is also full of mishaps and problems which can tickle any movie goer’s family bone.
If you and the whole family are contemplating on going on a Sunshine Coast holiday or wherever, hopefully, they won’t be full of mishaps and accidents as these films have shown. You can learn more about having the best family vacation you can possibly have by clicking here.
