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

While "RV" won't join "Good Morning Vietnam", "Dead Poets Society", "Aladdin" or "Mrs Doubtfire" as Robin William's greatest films, it's still worth a look on a lazy/rainy day.
Robin Williams plays a father of two ("Curb Your Enthusiam"s Cheryl Hines plays his wife) who - due to pressures at work (Will Arnett plays a fantastic a**hole boss) - changes the family trip from Hawaii to Colorado to make an important presentation. He hires an RV and hijinks ensue as they meet a seemingly hick family in an RV park (played by Jeff Daniels and Kristin Chenoweth).
There's a lot of silly slapstick stunts in this movie (like Robin being covered in the RV's sewage), though a scene where Robin saves his son from a group of wannaba wigga basketballer teens shows his improv skills.
If you're in the mood for an inoffensive, family-friendly, slapstick heavy ninety minutes, then you could do worse than watch "RV".
