I loved this movie about a California based adman who gets a transfer to New York and refuses to move. As a result he is fired. Weighing his options with his wife, the couple decides to sell everything and buy a large RV and travel the country for a few years.

At Brooks' insistance the couple decide to stop off in Las Vegas to get remarried. When Brooks goes to sleep, his wife sneaks off and loses everything they have in the casino. With no options the couple are forced to live in a trailer park and take very low paying jobs.

Through it all, Brooks starts to realize that moving to New York might not have been a bad decision after all

Gary Marshall makes an hilarious cameo as a casino manager that has to explain to Brooks how his wife lost all there money and then becomes annoyed when Brooks suggests that it would be an advertising boon if the casino gave all the money back.

I loved this movie!

Pros: .....     Cons: .....     The Bottom Line: .......        There is that one day every February when I wonder just what in the living Hell I am doing sitting at this empty desk, staring out of frost stained windows, snow piled knee high to an alligators bum, and going no where with my life. It is times like this that I just want to get into my trusty little Geo Storm and drive South or West until it runs out of gas and start …
