Synopsis: The executive Bob Munro is stressed, feeling threatened of losing his job and his lifestyle, since his abusive boss Todd Mallory hired the Stanford's geek Laird to work in their soda's company. Bob has promised his wife Jamie Munro, his teenage daughter Cassie Munro and his young son Carl Munro to spend vacations in Hawaii, but Todd demands him to prepare a presentation and attend a business meeting with the owners of a family company in a merging operation scheduled in the same period. Bob hides the truth to his family, rents a recreational vehicle and tries to convince his dysfunctional family that a road trip to the Colorado Rocky Mountains would be good to bring old values back to their family. After many incidents and while in the trailers parking area, the rookie Bob is helped by the bizarre but friendly Gornicke family. They escape from the Gornickes and initiate a journey of difficulties and leaning, retrieving their forgotten family bonds.

The fat of our youth is on your hands.

Wallow in it.

Thank you, I had a very nice time.

Keep it real.


Yo, homeslice,

can you chill on the def jam?

You're boiling my vibe.


Cass, can we talk?

- God, what?

- Nothing. My bad.

Father evil. Forgot that.

How you doing, are you all right?

- No, not really.

- Why don't you get that skin peel?

Feels like that.

Cassie was so abrasive -

Oh, Bob just came in.

Let me call you back. My sister.

- Did you talk to Cassie?

- Yeah, I tried.

Still bleeding a little bit.

She didn't know Gretchen

was gonna do that.

She didn't know her friend was gonna

throw a vat of schmaltz on my boss.

Wine or martini?

- Both, with a Prozac back.

- Okay.

Remember when it used to be

"Daddy's home"? Now nothing.

We watch TV

in four separate rooms...

...and we IM each other

when dinner's ready.

Well, then let's change things.

Let's start while we're in Hawaii.

No laptop, no BlackBerry,

no business calls.

- Let's really go.

- No what?

You're not gonna see them

for the rest of the summer.

- Carl's got camp -

- Yeah.

Cassie's got college prep

in Palo Alto, I know.

That's right, and they leave

the day after we get back.

It'll be the same in Hawaii. They'll

only call us when they need money.

Well, I'm glad we're going.

And don't worry so much about work.

Todd loves you.

You're indispensable.

I'm afraid not.

I think Laird's gonna get my job.

He's younger, smarter, cheaper.

What did you say?


Here you go.

To true love.

- Hawaii's gonna be great.

- Yeah.

You gotta cancel Hawaii.

- Why?

- We hit a snag in the Alpine merger.

- Since yesterday?

- One brother got seller's remorse.

- Garry.

- Larry.

Garry's still for it.

Show him some money...

...he'll quack like a duck.
