R.V. DVD Review

When we're young, we have a tendency to worship our parents, but that adoration wears off fast when we hit high school. Our dad's corny jokes are no longer funny - just embarrassing. This is the premise for the Robin Williams' movie, R.V. Will this flick make you laugh like the old days or just have you rolling your eyes in teenage angst? Find out right here!
R.V. - Family Fun
Bob Munro's (Robin Williams) family is used to a pretty cushy lifestyle
. He's an executive for a big soda company
and has planned a summer trip
for his family to Hawaii
- kind of a last hurrah before his daughter (played by JoJo) heads off to college
and his son heads off to camp
for the summer. But, when a last-minute merger comes through, Bob is expected to be in Colorado for the big pitch
. So, he devises a plan that will get him to Colorado
and allow him to spend quality time with his kids for a week. But, do you really think his two teenagers
are going to dig riding around in a huge R.V. with their parents
, instead of going to Hawaii?
R.V. - The Ways of the Wild
Packing a family of four into a motor-home is clearly a recipe for disaster
and this situation is no different. The Munro family is not exactly tight and having to spend their vacation
bonding in various R.V. parking lots
doesn't bring them much closer - at first. Soon though, their various mishaps, like having to head to the sanitation dump
and finding raccoons in their stove, cause the Munroes to see each other in a new, more positive light
. They also bond over their dislike of a fellow motor-homing family
that just won't go away!
R.V. - Camping Catastrophe
As usual, Robin Williams is on top of his game
and creates a ton of hilarious situations
throughout this movie. Whether it's him trying to please his boss or attempting to get through to his kids, Robin Williams brings a special kind of humor that he has branded over the years. The use of the R.V. as a main prop
throughout the movie, only adds to the hilarity of the flick. Other than some predictable twists
and turns, there's not a lot you can complain
about with R.V.
R.V. - DVD Features
The R.V. DVD is packed with special features
to keep the entertainment coming long after the movie is over. There's a gag reel - full of goofs
and Robin Williams
doing his thing, an alternate scene that didn't make the film, cast interviews
, a mini-documentary on R.V. "Road Warriors
" and more.
R.V. - Bottom Line
It is essential for anyone who has been on a long road trip
with their family to watch this movie. You will definitely appreciate the many clich
