    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    RV is a horrible movie about horrible people, and just because they call it a comedy doesn't mean we have to play along. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    I would have told you that its title refers to recreational vehicle. Having seen it, I now know the initials stand for reeking vulgarity. show more

    The funny thing about RV - no, it's not the jokes, which mostly bomb - is that the characters are actually pretty likable. It's an odd achievement for a road-trip comedy that wants desperately to be loved for its potty jokes, not its humanity. show more

    The biggest disappointment is the rigorously rote nature of the characters and story line in Geoff Rodkey's script show more

    RV stands for "Retread of 'Vacation,'" or possibly "Robin's Vehicle," but to me it's funnier than "National Lampoon's Vacation." I always found Chevy Chase's road trip more unpleasant than outrageous, but RV has laughs spilling out of its overhead bins. show more

    Robin Williams is such a great comic virtuoso that it can almost hurt to see him straining to pump life into a conventional, uninspired, sometimes-goofy big-studio comedy such as RV. show more

    There is nothing I much disliked but little to really recommend. At least the movie was not nonstop slapstick, and there were a few moments of relative gravity, in which Robin Williams demonstrated once again that he's more effective on the screen when he's serious than when he's trying to be funny. show more

    Once you get past the lengthy, graphic geyser-of-liquid-excrement gag, it's not as irredeemably vulgar as it might have been. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    RV has teeth -- more teeth than the last few Steve Martin films, anyway -- but it's terrified to bite down, knowing that the paying audience would feel it more than anyone. show more
