Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Oscar Winner Robert Williams does it again
8 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

For all of you fans of Ockham and Heidegger, this is a film for you! Hilarious, intriguing, often mesmerizing, this is a film for the entire family. I laughed so hard, the neighbors almost called the police. It is almost as funny as "When The Whistler Blows".

If Orson Welles were alive, he would be directing comedies like this one. I particularly liked the scene of the RV. Do I smell a sequel? Anyway, if you enjoy the easy writings of Thomas More or Therese of Avila, this film is your best bet.

The woman from Arrested Development was great too. It is a film that really makes you think. It was almost as good as Click, and as insightful as Man on Fire.
