‘RV’ revs its engine

Laffer launches in H'wood

HOLLYWOOD — At Sunday’s Village launch for “RV,” producer Doug Wick said his comedy was “a welcome to the summer.”

Indeed, the scene at the premiere’s after-party was suitably vacation-like: kids running around and then focusing their energies on a bank of video machines.

One of the organizers said what she’d learned from decorating a parking lot as an RV park is “usually people want to take the props home. No one wants to steal garden gnomes.”

As for the pic, director Barry Sonnenfeld said he wanted the film to be “both funny and say something about family without being sappy,” while star Robin Williams appreciated the chance to do Buster Keaton-esque physical comedy but credited “better hydraulics” for making it happen.
