Family man Phil Weston, a lifelong victim of his father's competitive nature, takes on the coaching duties of a kids' soccer team, and soon finds that he's also taking on his father's dysfunctional way of relating...
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

The Munro RV is a Forest River, Georgetown 359 TS. Five of them were purchased, plus a sixth which was ordered in pieces and assembled in a way that allowed hydraulic rams to raise and lower it out of the lake. Two were fitted with special suspension hydraulics to handle some of the extreme driving moments. Two of them are the ones that the Munros are seen living and driving in. The 5th was dubbed "Wild Thing" and was fully functional. See more »
Before riding his bicycle down the side of the hills, Bob yells to the others while at the gas station. They do not hear him, yet he can clearly hear Travis telling everyone to get back on the Gornicke bus. See more »
Once again, Robbin Williams doing what he does best. It is refreshing to see Williams getting back to his comedy roots. I was kinda reluctant to see this film after reading some of the other User Comments on IMDb...but knowing that Sonnenfeld directed, and of course, Williams in the lead, I knew I had to take the family to see it, and I'm glad I did. My 12 and 13 year old kids, my Wife and myself laughed from beginning to end. Our family could also relate to the "RV" lifestyle, as we are RV'rs as well, and it is nice to see a movie made that centers around this ever-growing hobby/lifestyle. Either see the movie now, or wait till it releases on DVD, but see it...you won't be disappointed!
