Candy and Aykroyd do their usual thing, which makes this a decent comedy.

If it wasn't for John Candy, this movie would suck.

I'm pretty sure I wore out the video tape I had of this because I watched it so many times growing up. While my tastes have changed, I still think this is a great family comedy with many memorable moments (the Old 96er!)
