Synopsis


RV
A white-collar workaholic deceptively persuades his family to forgo their much-anticipated Hawaiian vacation for a cross-country road trip in a fully loaded RV, during which they discover the true meaning of family bonding, in Men in Black director Barry Sonnenfeld's family-friendly road comedy starring Robin Williams, Jeff Daniels, and Cheryl Hines. Bob Munro (Williams) is overworked and overstressed, and though his proposal to hit the road with his wife and two children at first sounds like a heartfelt bid to get better acquainted with his increasingly dysfunctional family, it soon becomes obvious that he had more career-oriented goals in mind when planning the trip. The Munros have always managed to get by in the past, though, and as they slowly become immersed in RV culture with a little help from a full-time troupe of Winnebago warriors, they might just make it to the Rocky Mountains without driving each other totally insane. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    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 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 was nice to see the late Robin Wiliams in a family film. 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.

    Robin Williams contained but funny

    3 of 5 stars for the Robin Williams comedy movie: RV. Williams plays a busy executive trying to close a big deal who's family is insisting on a vacation to Hawaii. So, he decides to rent an RV and take the family on a cross-country road-trip. On their journey, they meet a kinda crazy family (country hick) who keeps following them. This is a funny movie that nicely balances Williams insane comedy with a pretty well done script/story. Williams plays it pretty rationally but retains his outstanding comedy contents and timing. There are many great lines and scenes. My favorite set of scenes was at the RV waste pump-out station; another favorite was the RV atop the mountain suspended in mid-air by the mountain point. So why only 3 of 5? I have seen many movies that are much funnier than this with more insane situations. So, 3 of 5 for this well done good comedy movie. It was well created (script, photography, sets/locations) just nothing outstanding. Yes, I do recommend this movie.

    This film, was okay, but the film wasn't that dazzaling in Hi-def, like some movies, but was a huge improvement over the DVD. However the film, being one of the first Blu-ray Disc movies released , was that good in quality, and the MPEG-2 decoding didn't help either. The movie was funny, and was worth watching a few times. but, as said above the ending wasn't that good, it didn't make sense. It was dissappointing, despite the high retail price ( in NZ, of around $42), it lacked any special features. It's not a suprise, as the disk capacity is only 25GB - although it should be noted some HD DVD's have a lot of special features such as King Kong (based on reviews), with only 30GB, of storage - hope the VC-1 and MPEG-4 AVC, codecs are better.

    The DVD plays and stops when it wants too. We actually thought our DVD Player was bad. Therefore, we took it to Best Buy and they ran a diagnostic test and found nothing wrong. We then played several other DVD Movies without and issues. However, when we put this one back in the machine we had the same problem. The movie plays and then stops at un specified locations in the movie which requires starting everything from the beginning. It a great movie, but needs to be put on a high quality DVD Disc and ensure it plays without any issues.

    I just wrecked the rear corner of our RV pulling away from a Diesel pump. This movie will stay in the RV. I will watch when I need a good laugh and lighten up! We will miss Robin Williams greatly The entertainment industry and we his fans have suffered a great loss. Our thoughts are with his family. We hope grief due his death will be lessened because of the joy he brought to us all. Thank you Robin God Bless and keep you.

    Although I was never a huge Robin Williams (RIP) fan, RV is one of the movies I stumbled upon one Saturday morning on TBS about 4 or 5 years ago. I ended up really enjoying it -- it wasn't truly one of his best performances or anything, but it was actually entertaining and had some good bits. Jeff Daniels is also hilarious. Highly recommended if you want a good family-friendly laugh.

    It is great for every age and for the family. The movie is about a family that is not very close planning on going to Hawiie but Bob (Robin Williams) was told at his job to go to Mnt. Watsin Colorado for work. And so he convinced his family to go in a RV to Mnt. Watsin Colorado.

    A dysfunctional family rent an RV for a road trip to the Colorado Rockies, not the Hawaii trip they had planned, where they as a family come to see they still have a bond and have a great family vacation while dealing with all sorts of funny circumstances.
