Overview... a married father of two hell-bent on giving his family a memorable vacation. Though he has noble intentions to drive his family from Chicago to Los Angeles's Walley World amusement park, things go off the rails almost immediately. Clark doesn't respond well to adversity, and by the time the family reaches Arizona the simple frustrations of a difficult trip escalate to robbery, animal cruelty, and even death.
Personality... temperamental and obsessive, but loving. To Clark, this vacation is not just a fun distraction – it's how he proves his manhood and abilities as a father to his family. And he'll go to great, sometimes criminal, lengths to make it happen because he loves his family so much. Not so much that he won't check out the hot blonde driving next to them on the highway, but a lot.
