It's 'as you were' for Robin Williams who has tried to break away from these insipid comedies of late with darker roles in One Hour Photo and Insomnia. Williams, granted, is the funniest of the bunch but is that because he is a comedian who knows how to deliver a line or because he is given the only good lines? Just when you thought Williams could drag the movie up to his level, his quips quickly lose any wittiness as RV careers into the blind spot of monotony. When the old joke of "It's a lovely evening" - cue rain - gets an airing, you're left wondering if writer Geoff Rodkey ever saw a comedy before; The Shaggy Dog and Daddy Day Care scribe has written one of the laziest scripts in recent years and hopes his audience will be content with the sluggish jokes that we've seen a million times before. They won't however and RV is what your grandparents might call 'mildly amusing' if they could stay awake long enough.
