The executive Bob Munro is stressed, feeling threatened of losing his job and his lifestyle, since his abusive boss Todd Mallory hired the Stanford's geek Laird to work in their soda's company. Bob has promised his wife Jamie Munro, his teenage daughter Cassie Munro and his young son Carl Munro to spend vacations in Hawaii, but Todd demands him to prepare a presentation and attend a business meeting with the owners of a family company in a merging operation scheduled in the same period. Bob hides the truth to his family, rents a recreational vehicle and tries to convince his dysfunctional family that a road trip to the Colorado Rocky Mountains would be good to bring old values back to their family. After many incidents and while in the trailers parking area, the rookie Bob is helped by the bizarre but friendly Gornicke family. They escape from the Gornickes and initiate a journey of difficulties and leaning, retrieving their forgotten family bonds. Written by

As Bob Munro holds the Y connector over his head at the dump tank, Howie is kneeling over the tank opening holding the end of the hose. The contents of the RV tank makes it's way up the hose, and some does make it's way down towards the dump tank before Bob hollers to stop. In the next shot Howie tosses aside the hose, but there is nothing in the hose. See more »
I went to see RV with my husband and my two daughters (5 and 10 years old) and all the family enjoyed it so much... It was FUN. The jokes were smarter than in average American family comedies, though, at the same time, they worked in different levels for different age ranges. Robin Williams was not annoying this time, he was warm and communicate truly desperation. And the weird Gornicke were just adorable. It is an excellent family comedy (a genre that I like a lot, despite the fact that I can't stand other mainstream Hollywood movie genres). I would recommend it to anyone who wants to spend some quality and extremely fun time with his or her family.
