Worst Vacations in Movies 13 Movie Vacations Gone Horribly Wrong by Shannon Vestal 29/7/12 7 Reactions 0 Shares Print 0 0 0 0 0 Sharks, sinking ships, dead bodies — these movies are rife with the worst-case travel scenarios! So, if you plan on getting away this Summer, and your flight is delayed or you end up with a busted rental car, relax. Be glad this wasn't your vacay. The Beach What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 Richard (Leonardo DiCaprio) is on a search for a secret island paradise. But once there, he gets sucked into a protective community of travelers, along with their leader (Tilda Swinton). Unfortunately, the little Utopia is falsely tranquil, and Richard is lucky to leave alive (but with a rather nice tan, of course). 1 / 13 Couples Retreat What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 The resort that these four couples visit, Eden, is gorgeous and would be relaxing — if they weren't being sent there for hard-core couples therapy, and don't actually get to be on vacation at all. However, it's the rare trip that goes from good to bad and back to good again — the relationships are actually mended by all the tropical shenanigans. 2 / 13 Open Water What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 A young couple is left behind by their scuba diving tour company while visiting the Caribbean. It's every vacationer's worst nightmare: extreme dehydration, hours of treading water, jellyfish, and sharks! This movie will definitely make you rethink ocean activities on your next holiday. 3 / 13 Sex and the City 2 What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) and the girls thought they had a luxury, all-expenses paid excursion to Morocco in Sex and the City 2, thanks to Samantha (Kim Cattrall). But when their libidinous friend gets a little too frisky with a fellow vacationer, they get booted from their hotel on short notice. To make matters worse, Carrie's all discombobulated; not only does she lose her passport, but a stolen kiss with her ex Aidan has put a damper on the entire trip. 4 / 13 Weekend at Bernie's What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 Larry (Andrew McCarthy) and Richard (Jonathan Silverman) thought they were going for a relaxing weekend at their boss's uber-expensive house on the beach — until they show up, and he's dead. Between catching rays and riding speedboats, they're forced to cart around the limp Bernie in order to save their own hides from a hit-man. 6 / 13 Brokedown Palace What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 Claire Danes and Kate Beckinsale play two recent high school grads who embark on a trip to Thailand to celebrate their new freedom; however, after encountering a persuading Australian, the girls ditch Bangkok for Hong Kong and get busted for heroin in the process. Their trip souvenir: a jail sentence. 6 / 13 Titanic What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 A five-star cruise takes a turn for disaster when the ship starts sinking — forcing Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet) to fight for their lives. At least they'll always have that forbidden romp in the cargo hold. 7 / 13 The Heartbreak Kid What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 This film just goes to prove the importance of choosing the right travel companion. Eddie (Ben Stiller) thinks his new wife is perfect, until they drive down to Cabo for the trip from hell — bad sunburns, bad sex, and bad car karaoke. 8 / 13 Vacation What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 The first film of the National Lampoon Vacation series set the bar high (and by that, I mean incredibly low) for the Griswold family. Clark (Chevy Chase) crashes the car through a roadblock, Aunt Edna dies, and after all of that, Wally World is closed! It's simple Murphy's Law: what can go wrong, will go wrong. 9 / 13 The Hangover What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 It's the worst bachelor party since Very Bad Things. Not only do Phil (Bradley Cooper), Alan (Zach Galifianakis), and Stu (Ed Elms) lose the groom (Justin Bartha) in Vegas the day before his wedding, but they don't remember a single event from the night. Their wild goose chase around Sin City leads to missing teeth, a close encounter with a tiger, and ending up on the wrong end of a taser gun. Ouch. 11 / 13 The Great Outdoors What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 In this Summer movie classic, Chet (John Candy) just wants to show his family a good time at the lake, but his plans are foiled when his presumptuous brother-in-law Roman (Dan Aykroyd) crashes their vacation. Now instead of relaxing with his wife and kids, Chet is forced into competing with the showy Roman at every turn — and avoiding a rather large bear.

What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 The borderline agoraphobic Bob (Bill Murray) becomes his therapist's (Richard Dreyfuss) worst nightmare when he follows him and his family to a quiet lakeside resort. The gentle but emotionally disturbed Bob becomes a fixture in the good doctor's vacation and while his family bonds with Bob, Dr. Marvin becomes so enraged he plots to kill him. So much for serenity. Photo courtesy of Touchstone Movies 12 / 13 The Net What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 In a movie that dispels the romance of a vacation fling, workaholic computer nerd Angela (Sandra Bullock) takes a trip to Mexico alone and meets a handsome stranger. Just when she lets herself trust him, he steals her stuff and tries to kill her. Oh, and when she gets back home, her entire identity has been stolen. Lesson: don't talk to strangers.
