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

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

When Bob Monroe and the RV is stuck at the top of a mountain road with all wheels off the ground and he guns the gas pedal the RPM goes up to 6000 rpm yet the speedometer is still at zero .. when you have transmission in gear and wheels turn -regardless of ground contact or not- the speedometer will still register your speed through rotation of rear wheels thru the transmission which is in Gear.

A LOT better than I expected
29 April 2006 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

The trailer does this film no justice. My family wanted to see it and I must admit it looked pretty stupid from the commercials. I've always liked Robin Williams though and went along for the ride. It turned out to be a vacation trip full of laughs.

The entire theater was howling throughout the movie. Williams was at his quick witted best and the entire cast just seemed to fit the film. Granted, this is a "roll with the comedy" kind of film. There may be a little bit too much "potty" humor, but it isn't anything raunchy like Wedding Crashers or other films aimed at teens. This is good for the entire family and will have them all laughing.

Some of the plot and a few of the jokes are telegraphed from a mile away but the strength of the performances and a troop of likable characters transform it from a film you merely wouldn't regret watching to one you'll actually enjoy."
