Not Half As Bad As One Might Think...
11 December 2002 | by MovieAddict2016See all my reviews

"Tourist Trap," written by Andy Breckman -- who once wrote for Saturday Night Live as well as films such as "Rat Race" and "Sgt. Bilko" -- doesn't offer nearly as many laughs as "Vacation" or other great family vacation movies of its genre, but Daniel Stern is funny, and helps generate some laughs.

One other great thing about "Tourist Trap" is that unlike "Vacation," "Trap" is family-friendly. Some of the guffaws are aimed towards children, but there's some hidden adult humor, as well. Such as when we have a flashback involving Jefferson's chair. It's painful to watch, thinking about what the chair is and witnessing its demise. Of course, it's a film, but if it were real...can you imagine?

"Tourist Trap" may not be "cool" to some, but if you have a family, it's a better pick than "Vacation," which needless to say, is quite raunchy at times.

3/5 stars-
