More Details

Synopsis:
Thanks to his family, Mr. Hobbs's life is about to get a lot more irritating. His insistent wife, Peggy, convinces the fussy Midwest banker to pack up the kids and head for the Pacific shore for a summer vacation. In addition to their four children, the Hobbses also bring along their two married daughters' husbands and two grandchildren. They arrive at a spooky cottage equipped with a mousetrap-like water pump. Then things turn worse. One daughter's egghead spouse splits. The other's horny hubby starts flirting with a babe on the beach. The youngest daughter has an inferiority complex due to her braces, and Hobbs' son thinks Dad's a dork. Eventually Hobbs quits complaining about his clan and realizes Peggy's homilies about familial togetherness actually make sense.

Notes:
Fabian performs one song in this film, "Cream Puff." Additional cast: Lauri Peters (Katey); Valerie Varda (Marika); Lili Gentle (Janie); Josh Peine (Stan); Richard Collier (Mr. Kagle); Peter Oliphant (Peter Carver); Stephen Mines (Carl); Dennis Whitecomb (Dick); and Michael Sean (Phil).
