Anonymous Sponsor Bnngs Movie Here hi With an anonymous sponsor this weekend, RV will be play- ing at the Chief Theatre in Cold- water. Running 99 minutes, the movie is rate PG for some crude humor and language, and is con- sidered to be of the comedy/fam- ily genre. It will start at 7:30 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday nights, with the box office and conces- sion stand opening at 7 p.m. RV's feel for the comedy of American families is as dead-on as Hollywood gets. Robin Will- iams stars as Bob Munro, an L.A. soda company executive whose wish is to keep his surly family together. "We watch TV in separate rooms and IM each other when dinner's ready," he laments. The overworked Bob, his wife Jaime, their 15-year-old daughter Cassie, and 12-year- old son Carl are in desperate need of some quality time to- gether. After promising to take them on a family vacation in Hawaii, Bob abruptly changes plans without telling them. In- stead of a week in a tropical paradise, they're going on a road trip to Colorado in a recreational vehicle. Dragging his wife and kids kicking and screaming into the RV, Bob's togetherness plan (which is partly a ruse to keep him from losing his job) almost immediately hits a major speed bump. Everything that can go wrong, does. Bob's lame at- tempts to navigate the unwieldy, oversized vehicle are met with silence and scorn from his re- sentful family. The RV life is a far cry from their comfortable life in Los An- geles, and every attempt Bob makes to get them into the spirit of the vacation threatens to tear them further apart. At an RV camp, the Munro family is be- friended by the Gornicke family -- an irritatingly endearing, happy-go-lucky clan of full-time RV'ers. The more they try to elude the Gornickes, the more their paths seem destined to cross. But ad- versity has a way of uniting even the most dysfunctional family members and each setback the Munros experience inadvert- ently helps them become a true family again.
