This movie is laugh-out-loud funny in spots. The audience I saw it with roared with laughter several times. This is one of those films that is funnier than it looks in the trailer. I expected it to be mediocre but was pleasantly surprised. An example is when a friend of Bob’s daughter Cassie, a girl Bob doesn’t like, starts to get into the family vehicle and Bob speeds off with her barely in the car. Her leg hangs out as she tries to finish climbing in. Bob’s adventures with the RV bring the most laughter as he battles it rolling backward and when he gets stuck on the top of a large rock in the country, the laughs hit their peak.
The content area does have some ingredients which make it better for ages twelve and above. The language does not prevent it from being Dove approved, but it does have some language in it. There is also the comment about Bob’s daughter “making out” with another couple’s son. There is some “sewer” humor. Robin Williams has seldom been funnier than he is in this film. We recommend it for some family laughs. Perhaps the family will bond the same way Bob’s family does as time and situations bring them closer together.
