A computer salesman charged with marketing a tiny computer that no one can operate faces hypertension when he realizes that there is no way to sell the product and he is likely to lose his job. So he can get some rest, his wife offers to take their two kid's camping for a week. When his fellow salesman and best friend is fired and thrown out of his house by his wife, he moves in and immediately starts unending parties which ultimately ends up the house on fire and Winkler arrested on multiple charges. In between, in a drug-induced stupor, he gets mixed up with a ditzy blonde who wants to marry him and rescue her child from being raised by her parents.Written by

NATIONAL LAMPOON'S DAD'S WEEK OFF is the funniest made-for-cable movie about a computer salesman named Jack [Henry Winkler of THE WATERBOY and LITTLE NICKY] who decides he needs some time off so his family leaves him alone at the house for a week. His week starts to be relaxing until all that changes when his work buddy named Bernie [Richard Jeni of THE MASK] comes for a little visit. Henry Winkler in funny, but it is Richard Jeni who gives the better comedic performance as his annoying [and hilarious] partner. This made-for-cable movie is funnier than most movies that have theatrical releases. I'm glad Paramount Pictures put NATIONAL LAMPOON'S DAD'S WEEK OFF available on video. I wish Paramount Pictures would also put it on DVD though. This is truly the best NATIONAL LAMPOON in the whole series.
