Bob Munro and his dysfunctional family rent an RV for a road trip to the Colorado Rockies, where they ultimately have to contend with a bizarre community of campers.
I just found an old Star Magazine that had a review of RV just before it opened in the theaters. The money quote for me was, “when was the last time Robin Williams was in a movie that was funny?” This one certainly isn’t – if you are over the age of 10.
There were bright spots; Jeff Daniels & Kristin Chenoweth as the bizarre but big hearted Gornicke parents, JoJo as a typical teen, um…I guess that’s about it.
Potty humor and predictable slapstick with good production values.

We just caught this on HBO – Wish we hadn’t.
Robbin Williams can be faulted for accepting the role but, frankly, I think he should be praised for staying with the movie through it’s production. He had to wake up tired every morning prior to shooting JUST KNOWING that he would have to carry EVERY scene.
