RV is a great movie that shows an average American family on a humorous journey that restores the bonds that have long faded with the business of living. Bob Munro (Robin Williams) shows up the morning that his family is packing for their Hawaii summer vacation with possibly the most obnoxious RV anyone has ever laid eyes on. He is forced to pack his family into the RV and drive across country under the guise of enjoying quality time with his family, in truth Bob has one mission and that is to save his job.
In the course of this unlikely family vacation the Munro family becomes invaded by enormous raccoons, they are left to fight monsoon sized rain and are faced with fleeing from a rather strange family of stalkers. Bob has a chance meeting with Travis Gornicke (Jeff Daniels) while being bombed by exploding feces that is comparable only to a small sized nuclear explosion. After Bob’s dinner plans have become less than stellar he takes his family over to the Gornicke’s for dinner. The Monro’s spend the bulk of the rest of the movie trying to avoid this strange family. In the end after sinking their RV, having the truth of Bob’s family vacation come out and enduring an epic family melt down it is none other than the Gornicke’s that come to the rescue and in their own way show the Monro’s the importance of honesty, love and family ties.
RV is a 2006 family comedy that has just the right amount of adventure. This movie was written by Geoff Rodkey and directed by Barry Sonnenfeld. RV can be enjoyed by an audience of all ages and should be considered a great family film.
