Summer Rental (1985)

87 min.
Plot  Overworked air-traffic controller Jack Chester is given four weeks off, as an alternative to being fired after nearly causing a mid-air collision on the job. He uses this time off to take his wife Sandy and children Jennifer, Bobby, and Laurie on a summer vacation from the Atlanta area to the fictitious Gulf Coast resort town of Citrus Cove, Florida, where they are constantly beset by a never-ending barrage of problems. First they move into the wrong house by mistake, then Jack receives a leg injury that prevents him from spending time with his family.

The family ends up in a decrepit shack on a public beach in Florida, with a constant stream of vacationers tromping through. Jack locks horns with pompous local sailing champion Al Pellet, who becomes the owner of this dubious piece of real estate after the previous owner passes away. Jack gives Al the check for $1,000 to cover the rent for the next two weeks but Al, who despises Jack, tears up the check and orders the Chesters ...
