Oh, no. From the ranks of the comic undead rises Robin Williams, his crinkly smile and warm heart, alas, apparently inextinguishable. He plays a soft-drinks exec who reorganises his family's holiday to Colorado, whither they will travel in a humongous RV. As his spoilt teenage daughter says, "Why not just set fire to a giant oil-field and have done with it?" Thus begins one of those old-fashioned holiday nightmares, in which raccoons terrorise the campers, the brakes give out and everyone gets covered in shit at least once. Jeff Daniels provides brief respite as a superfriendly country and western fan, but even he can't divert the film from its inevitable destination: Big Hugsville, USA.
