Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: Who recommended RV to Robin Williams is among the film's many mysteries. Why he took the role is another.
- Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Friday, April 28, 2006
Rotten: It's about as funny as an explosion in a septic tank.

Without my little review here sounding too cliched this film could be and pretty much is a sequel to the classic Chevy Chase vehicles 'National Lampoon's'. Its pretty much a by the numbers light hearted comedy set in the wilderness as Robin Williams tries to give his family a fun packed vacation and spent more time with them. Despite being very very predictable and completely unoriginal the film is actually quite amusing and very watchable. Yes you know what will happen with every setup and yes Williams is being his own 'Clarke Griswold' but damn it its fun. Williams is a likeable fun guy and the family casting isn't too bad either, Hutcherson as a body building obsessed wannabe 'homie' is actually quite funny but Jeff Daniels as the slightly religious, thick tashed rodeo type does grate, his character and family I guess are the 'cousin Eddie' n co of the plot. Sonnenfeld is a good director of family films and he does a fine job here it has to be said even if the film is nothing new.

R.V is a fairly enjoyable comedy. I didn't expect that the film would be funny, entertaining or good for that matter. But I was pleasantly surprised. Robin Williams and Jeff Daniels are great here, and it's what makes this film work. R.V. is underrated and has good laughs because of the lead. Robin Williams is always a pleasure to watch on-screen, and in this film he brings on good laughs. R.V. is lot of fun, and is a good comedy for what it is. I enjoyed the film, and found that there were some good comedy bits here and there. R.V isn't a great film, but it's far from an awful film. The film is a good for what it is, and it's lots of fun. The film is entertaining and though it's nothing great, I think the film isn't as bad as what many people have claimed it to be. R.V. is an entertaining film that has a decent cast with a good lead, and Robin Williams definitely makes this film work. I enjoyed the film, and It's far better than what many people have claimed it to be. This a fun film to watch, and is underrated in my opinion. The film is much better than you might think. Of course, it's not a perfect comedy, but it definitely is a good one. I've seen worse films than this. R.V. has a good cast that keeps the jokes rolling, and the fact that Robin Williams stars in this is what really makes this film work. A good, fun and entertaining comedy film that shouldn't easily be dismissed.
