Ah, Mexico. Where little kids are in jail.
Anyways, there aren’t a lot of details available for How I Spent My Summer Vacation online just yet, but it has Mel Gibson playing a total badass, so I’m sure I’ll love it. After all, every man dies. Not every man really lives.
I mean, FREEDOM!
How I Spent My Summer Vacation
Gibson cowrote the screenplay for How I Spent My Summer Vacation with Adrian Grunberg, who is directing. Grunberg was a first assistant director on a number of films, but he hasn’t been in charge of anything else yet. So no doubt Mel gets his way on set.

What’s Bad About It?
Gibson is producing, and he cowrote the screenplay, so likely Hollywood doesn’t want to touch his work. I doubt he’ll be able to make much of an impact, as there’ll be little to no studio help for How I Spent My Summer Vacation.
Our Clever Prediction
Fingers crossed that this is a big comeback for Mel. I know he’s said some bad stuff, but I think it’s really telling that so many people who know him have stood behind him. I think Mel has gone through a rough patch, but he’s treated people well for years, so he deserves, in my always correct opinion, a second chance.
