Goofs

The Dave Foley character makes a reference to the "Calistoga Wagons" that traveled the Oregon Trail. The word is "Conestoga Wagon" - and, Conestoga Wagons were NOT used on the Oregon Trail -- Conestoga Wagons were too large and heavy for use on the Oregon Trail. See more »

Movie Making 101
10 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

No one associated with this film knows the basic rule of movie making. There has to be someone in the film that the audience is routing for. This movie should have been called A**holes on Parade.

Everyone is twisted, but not even in a funny way.

The daughter is so stupid that she thinks her boyfriend can hide in the bathroom of the RV all the way to California. The boyfriend runs into the corn and gets lost in 10 secs. That might have been funny if the boyfriend character was dumb enough to be funny, but he wasn't. While he was in the corn, he used the word "infinate". (WHO wrote this script?) The daughter doesn't mind the fact that her "boyfriend" never told his parents about her and that the mother is a criminal and the parents (who by all standards are white trash) do not allow him to have a girlfriend. When does that happen? The father is so lame, I don't even have a comment about him. (and I really like Dave Foley). The mother is the one person I was trying to relate to, but then she turned into a psycho. The sister and the grandmother are twisted individuals.

The lovey dovey resolution at the end doesn't make up for the mess that this movie is.
