The RV winds up sliding into the lake. Bob accidentally reveals to his family that the whole reason for the trip was because of the business meeting. His family is angry with him, and he has to ride a bike to the meeting. The Gornickes find Jaime, Cassie and Carl walking on the road, and give them a lift to the soft drink place. Bob catches up with them, worn, ragged and dirty from his bike ride, and has a tearful reunion. He makes it to the meeting, but tells the Colorado soft drink company they are better off remaining small and independent of Vibe Soda. His boss immediately fires him. The Munros are later seen driving the dredged-up RV down the road, dirt-poor but happy. The Colorado soda company guys catch up with him and offer him a job.


Continuity mistake: When bike riding Bob grabs hold of the Gornicke bus ladder, his hands grip different rungs between multiple shots. (01:22:25)

Question: How did they get the RV out of the lake?

Answer: In the world of "make believe", they used "movie magic" to zap the RV out of the water and on to dry land - with no mechanical issues resulting from being submerged. In the real world, someone called a tow truck - perhaps AAA - and the RV was pulled out of the water and it suffered water damage and needed some repairs. This movie was presented as being "real life." Bob left on a bicycle to "try to find help." Near the end of the movie, Carl said that the RV "spent two days under water and they had to fish it out." He didn't say who "they" were. A fishing pole would not be strong enough to reel in a large RV, so I think it is safe to conclude that a tow truck was used to pull the RV out of the lake.


It should be noted that "fish it out" is a common phrase to mean pull or take out, especially after searching. When people use the term, they're never taking about using a fishing pole. But often when people post questions like this, they're asking for an in-film explanation in case they missed (or didn't understand) something. If no in-film explanation was given, a reasonable speculation can be given. You don't need to remind people the movie is a movie. If the in/film explanation is uncharacteristic to real life, then one can point out that in real life it wouldn't happen that way.


There was no irony, but this isn't the forum for irony anyways.


I guess I failed miserably... but wasn't the original question rhetorical?
