      Friday Flicks: The Great Outdoors

      The 1988 American comedy written and produced by John Hughes. It stars Dan Aykroyd, John Candy and Annette Benning in her feature film debut. Nostalgic about the good old days in the honeymoon cabin, the patriarch Chet and the Ripley family set off to the idyllic woods of Wisconsin for the summer vacation. However, their plans for a peaceful family bonding in the heart of the untamed nature will be thwarted, when the high-rolling brother-in-law Roman and the snotty Craig family decide to crash the party. Eventually, as the two families try to have a good time together, a seemingly endless series of misfortunes and mini-disasters with thirsty leeches, cunning racoons and a mythical wild bear, threaten to ruin the vacation. What will it take to salvage the weekend? (Rated PG for adult situations, language;1988) All showings begin at 7. Tickets are $7 or $5 for students.
