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.

someone comes around. "

"There's someone

that makes sleeping difficult. "

"Cassie. "

"I'm coming. "

Who's there?

- "The Tickle Monster. "

- No.

"That's right, Sylvester Stallone

is the Tickle Monster. "

"I'm gonna tickle you. "


"I'm gonna tickle you. "


"I'm gonna tickle you!"

Daddy, help.

I'm here, Cassie.

Unhand my daughter, Tickle Monster.

Oh, hand - To - Hand.

- Look, over there.

- Go, Daddy, go.

"Oh, dear. "

- Is she still up?

- Yeah.

Yeah, I just gave her a warm bath...

...and now she's more wide - Awake

than I am.

She won't be so sharp

for her big meeting tomorrow.

- Good night, sweetie.

- Night, Mommy.

Well, if I can get Carl to sleep

in the next 10 minutes...

- ... you might still have a shot tonight.

- Use a mallet if you have to.

- Daddy?

- Yeah, baby?

I'm never gonna get married.

Why not? It's not as bad as it looks.

Because I always want to live here

with you.

Well, you know, one day,

you're gonna grow up...

...meet a wonderful guy,

and you're gonna get married.

But you and I

will always be best friends.

Good night, Cassie.

Dad, could you be any more of a dork?

Cassie, you know where this girl lives

or you just think you know?

I know where,

i just know one way to get there.

- And you refuse to go that way.

- Because it's a stupid way.

- If you consider getting there stupid.

- Why don't you use the navigation?

Because Sacajawea back there

doesn't know the name of the street.

She knows it as "the one

next to the one with the fountain. "

Hey, Dad,

cassie just gave you the finger.

If we don't find this house

in two minutes -

- I heard that.


- Where are they?

- She just left.


Which friend is this, the nice one?

You used to know all her friends.

- You were funny and charming.

- Well, she's 15.

She doesn't want me to be charming.

She finds it creepy.

Oh, no.

It's the too - Nice one.

Hi, thanks for inviting me.

Any friend of Cassie's

is always welcome.

We're a little late.

Remember, congratulate Todd

on the Alpine soda merger...

...tell him the house looks great,

work in his outfit.

- Maybe he smells nice.

- Lick his face?

No, don't touch him.

Don't shake his hand.

- Oh, right, Mr. Stupid - Germ - Phobia.

- Yeah.

There they are, old Bob Bobcat.

- Teabag.

- Hi, Todd.

Hi. Hi.

Well, congratulations on Alpine soda.

- Bob said you'd do it.

- Yeah.

God, Jamie, if my ex - Wife

looked as good as you...

...i'd still be in the middle

of a horrible marriage.

Thank you, Todd.

What a lovely compliment.

Oh, there's Laird.


- So that's the young hotshot?

- Yeah.

Harvard M. B. A.

We're planning to kill him.

Do you want in?

- Cassie.

- There he is.

Laird. You know what'd be great?

You going to get me shrimp.

I'm not joking.

Cass, go say hi to Todd.

- What for?

- He likes you. I'll give you 20 bucks.

Can I come?

I read all about him online.


Hi, Mr. Mallory.

Good to see you again.

- Oh, Cassie Munro.

- Little Cassie?

Wow, you turned into quite

the young lady.

This is my friend, Gretchen.

- Hi, Gretch.

- Hi.

Aren't you the one who got

Pure Vibe sodas into the schools?

That was me. Cassie's dad helped,

he's head of Corporate Relations...

...but I am el presidente.

Wow, so you're, like,

personally responsible...

...for destroying the health

of millions of children.

- Gretchen.

- I probably wouldn't put it that way.

Obesity, diabetes, cholesterol.
