Johnson Family Vacation

Johnson Family Vacation (2004)The problem with me is that I don’t finish things that I really should to. And on the opposite – I go all the way with stuff that I shouldn’t even be doing. That is probably why I picked up not one but two movies randomly today. And both from the bad movie lot. “Johnson Family Vacation” was the second.

I tried to count all the jokes in this film and I think I even managed to, but I forgot the number. But don’t worry, it was for sure less than three. The good thing is that I can probably say that they were coming steady.

What the heck? I can understand the need to make a movie like this. Everyone might feel creative once in a while and everyone has to let it out. Some people draw, others dance, yet some others sing. Making movies is just of those ways to let creativity out.

But promoting a film like this, producing thousands of DVD copies, distributing it around the world – that’s just wrong. Ethics aside, I bet it wasn’t even commercially feasible. Gosh, I’m glad I got it cheap. Instead of buying a DVD or even watching it in the cinema, I rented it. And I still have the chance of talking Martin into money back for this crap.
