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

JoJo - Is She a Better Actor or Singer?

  • JoJo is a way better actor.
  • JoJo has a wicked voice, she should stick to singing.
  • I think she can act and sing quite well.
  • Neither! She should find a new career.

That movie is soo overrated. I never even got what it meant. And, there's also lame songs playing every 5 minutes of the movie. :mad :mad
