Editorial Reviews

In Columbia Pictures' family adventure-comedy RV an overworked executive, Bob Munro (Robin Williams), persuades his wife and children to give up their Hawaiian vacation for some "family bonding" on a cross-country RV trip. But it's all a ruse. Bob has other, more career-oriented reasons on his mind than sending quality time with his family in the Rocky Mountains. Through a series if misadventures, including constant run-ins with an overly friendly troupe of full-time RV'ers, Bob inadvertently learns the true meaning of family

5.0 out of 5 stars "I've got my ferns..." July 18, 2006
Format:DVD
Okay, I actually loved this movie...I thought it was funny and entertaining and just what I needed to see, something pointless and yet does the trick perfectly. You can always rely of Robin Williams for that. No, it's not the smartest comedy but it's not like we thought we were walking into 'Fargo' people, we were walking into a family vacation comedy that's full of slapstick laughs and gross humor, and that should be what you expected. Robin Williams plays Bob, a man whose a slave to his job, a job he's afraid he may lose. He's so afraid that he actually cancels his family's vacation to Hawaii and takes them on an RV trip to Colorado with hopes to sneak off to a meeting with his germaphobe boss in order to keep his job. Along the way (of course keeping his true intentions secret) he tries to recreate the bond he once had with his family. This of course starts of shakey since neither his wife (Cheryl Hines) nor his children, teenage daughter Cassie (JoJo) whose going through her rebelous "i hate mommy and daddy" stage and his young son Carl (Josh Hutcherson) whose insecure about his small size, are supportive. But after all the problems with sewage, weird hillbilly RV neighbors the Gornicke family (led by Jeff Daniels and Kristin Chenoweth) and some pesky racoons their is a family bonding moment that is shattered by a bowel problem (sort-of) a sinking RV and the exposure of Bob's secret meeting. In the end, RV may be predictable family fun, but the point still remains that it's family fun, and that's gotta amount to something.

4.0 out of 5 stars FUNNIER AND BETTER THAN EXPECTED May 8, 2006
In the mode of NATIONAL LAMPOON'S FAMILY VACATION is not a negative thing. This is an energetic and often quite funny family film. The theater we saw it in (Palm Desert, California) was nearly full with a cross section of seniors to kids. People laughed together and often.

The movie is fast paced with great outdoor cinematography. The plot has some twists and surprises and a real treat is Jeff Daniels and Kristen Chenoweth as parents of a permanent RV living (Christian?) family that are not treated as buffoons or easy targets for satire.

And that's the other thing that I liked about this light-hearted comedy; i.e., it has a moral center. Without being preachy in any way, the right things happen as all the loose ends are tied up in an unexpected (to me, anyway) and satisfying ending.

It's nice to see Robin Wiliams in a family film comedy again.

Jaded newspaper and TV reviewers weren't all that enthusiastic about this film, but audiences sure are. It was the top box office new movie the week it opened.

Better than expected and recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars National Lampoon's Vacation for the 21st Century April 10, 2007
Format:DVD
I've read reviews of RV, and they uniformly panned the movie as piffle; humorous tripe that reinforced family values and light humor, wasting the talents of Robin Williams.

Give me a break.

See, the implication that the family road trip movie is somehow a form of high art is fallacious to begin with. Although my family (and my wife's family) venerates the National Lampoon vacation movies as the ultimate in comedy, the truth of the matter is it's all a string of silly gags and ridiculous foils. It takes real skill to play a perpetually optimistic patriarch in the face of modern indignities and family squabbles. If anything, the family road trip movie is really just a condensed version of half the sitcoms on television. And there's a reason those sitcoms are still around, even though the critics patiently explain over and over how dumb they are.

They're right. It IS dumb. But then, so is having to deal with the inanities of modern life. RV is merely an update of a long established tradition of pitting a man (Bob Munro played by Robin Williams), his hot wife (Cheryl Hines), his teenage daughter (Joanna Levesque) and pre-teen son (Josh Hutcherson) against the world and seeing who comes out on top. And we root for Bob all the way.

What makes RV so appealing is that it doesn't deviate at all from the formula but cleverly updates all the trials and tribulations. Bob's affection for his adorable daughter at two years old is sharply contrasted by her wisecracking personality as a teenager. How many parents stare at their kids and wonder what happened to the darling who never wanted to leave their side? Bob's career hinges on finishing a presentation, and much of the movie is taken up with his personal struggle to find a signal for his Blackberry.

By Meesha
Format:DVD
I can actually see Steve Martin in this movie - if Robin had for some reason not been able to do this movie, then I can imagine the director/casting person calling Steve up. Cos the role could have done either of them!

I don't think I would have paid full price for this DVD, especially since it came down so fast in the UK. It's not a majorly fantastic cast - a virtual bunch of unknowns, apart from Robin & Jeff Daniels, and if you like your pop music, you'll recognise JoJo. Otherwise known as Joanne Levesque. Apart from that, there's no one really fantastic.

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by JoJo, playing Cassie, she's moved rather quickly into movies (also Aquamarine, which I haven't seen yet), but I think she could be quite successful. She reminded me a lot of Lindsay Lohan before her no knickers antics. She has great comedic timing, and has some of the best lines in the movie. More in the first half of the movie though. Some of her best lines, I'm listing here. They're classic!

Cassie Munro: Maybe we can feed Carl to the raccoon.

Cassie Munro: Dad, the RV's rolling away.

Cassie Munro: Mom, some idiot just parked this ugly RV outside our house.

Jamie Munro: What?

Cassie Munro: Oh, my God, it's your husband.

Cassie Munro: This is the worst I've ever been treated.

Jamie Munro: Wait till you get married.

I was quite surprised to spot Jeff Daniels in this, he doesn't appear that much in the first half, and has what can only be described as an awful moustache.

There are a few scenes where you think "American Pie", for example, the blockage of the sewage tank. Yes this is disgusting, and you actually pity Robin.
