Share Article

A frugal Midwestern family of four ventures to Mexico on a driving vacation in 1997 when the aggravating Granny ends up dying. Then the van gets stolen with Granny's body in it, and the border patrol won’t let the family re-enter the United States until they can account for the missing body and van.

When the aggravating Granny ends up dying across the Mexican border on vacation, her son-in-law thinks it's the end of his problems. Then the van gets stolen, with Granny's body in it. The border patrol won’t let the family re-enter the United States until they can account for the missing body and van. To make matters worse, the mortician—paid in cash—goes on an extended international vacation. They need a duplicate death certificate but, don’t know when the mortician will be back and with a toilet paper convention in the city, the hotels are booked solid. Will Granny’s body show up before the money runs out? Where will they stay? Who ends up in jail? Let the comedy begin!
