Having recovered from wounds received in a failed rescue operation, Navy SEAL Shane Wolfe is handed a new assignment: Protect the five Plummer kids from enemies of their recently deceased father -- a government scientist whose top-secret experiment remains in the kids' house.
The executive Bob Munro is stressed, feeling threatened of losing his job and his lifestyle, since his abusive boss Todd Mallory hired the Stanford's geek Laird to work in their soda's company. Bob has promised his wife Jamie Munro, his teenage daughter Cassie Munro and his young son Carl Munro to spend vacations in Hawaii, but Todd demands him to prepare a presentation and attend a business meeting with the owners of a family company in a merging operation scheduled in the same period. Bob hides the truth to his family, rents a recreational vehicle and tries to convince his dysfunctional family that a road trip to the Colorado Rocky Mountains would be good to bring old values back to their family. After many incidents and while in the trailers parking area, the rookie Bob is helped by the bizarre but friendly Gornicke family. They escape from the Gornickes and initiate a journey of difficulties and leaning, retrieving their forgotten family bonds.Written by

When the RV is stuck behind the low tractor and they show the line of cars and the RV from far away, you can clearly see that the RV is not real, because there is too much white on the back, there are no windows, and there are no green stripes. See more »
[a raccoon has invaded their RV; Bob is trying to muster the family to help him get rid of it]
See what the raccoon is doing? Playing head games. He wants to divide and conquer us. We have to hang together. Stay strong!
Just get rid of it.

Robin Williams was on sedatives for most of this one, but I think he was trying hard to be the semi-happily married businessman has was casted to be. The kids were just a little over the top but accurate enough examples of their generation. There were great slapstick scenes and some decent toilet humor that owners and renters of RVs can relate to more than others. Avoiding the sweet as pie family was very funny. The way they destroyed the RV at every turn, made me think a little too much about how Robin was going to pay for it especially since he loses his job at the end, but wait!! the little Ben and jerry type owners save the day.
This one was definitely a renter quality not a lets go see a movie quality film.
