‘RV’ Cast: Where Are the Stars of This Hilarious Film Today?

Robin Williams, Cheryl Hines, Josh Hutcherson and JoJo brought the hilarious 2006 comedy, RV, to life, about a disconnected family who embark on a family vacation, trapped within the confines of a recreational vehicle — and this hilarious cast of characters made it a classic!

Bob, played by Robin Williams, works for a soda company. When a company event goes awry thanks to his daughter’s friend, his boss, played by Will Arnett, insists he travel to Boulder, Colorado so they can acquire another brand — or he risks being fired.

Throwing a wrench in their initial plans for a trip to Hawaii, Bob tells his family they’re taking a trip to Colorado, hiding the real reason for their destination. From hilarious mishaps on their travels to eccentric faces they meet along the way (including a guest appearance by Criminal Minds’ Matthew Gray Gubler), RV is a family classic, tied together with a hilarious cast.
