Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Not unbearably terrible, just thoroughly mediocre."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"In RV, the downwardly spiraling career trajectories of Robin Williams and director Barry Sonnenfeld intertwine like the ropes of a tangled parachute."
‑ John Patterson, L.A. Weekly
"Robin Williams hasn't been this funny in many moons."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"A genuinely terrific main cast makes it all work within the confines of its all-ages intent."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"This is an ugly, desperate, witless little movie that, even if you happen to like it, will evaporate from your memory in the time it takes to flip the channel."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVDTalk.com
"Robin Williams tricks us into believing he can control his inner maniac beyond the film's first 15 minutes; when he fails, any hopes of RV going off-formula are dashed."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"It probably sounded like a swell idea in the pitch meeting."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"A disappointment for both Robin Williams and Men In Black director Barry Sonnenfeld, this vacation-from-hell plotline quickly grows tedious"
‑ Tim Grierson, Screendaily
"There are some sequences where you will love the characters and others where you can't stand them. Hmm, maybe RV is close to the real thing after all."
‑ Russ Breimeier, Christianity Today
"When it comes to this road-trip comedy, the question isn't 'Are we there yet?' It's: 'Is it over yet?'"
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, Buzzine Magazine
"Outsized huckster idiocy..."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"RV works up an ingratiating sweetness that partially compensates for its blunt predictability and meager laughs."
‑ Justin Chang, Variety
"...never quite as bad as it probably should have been..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"i really hated it"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson, sbs.is
"Surprisingly palatable family comedy..."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
