One high concept = two completely different movies

There's been a lot of talk about "high concept", first in movies, and now in books. How's this for a high-concept movie: dysfunctional family takes cross-country road trip.

In 2006, there were two movies with that concept: Little Miss Sunshine and RV (with Robin Williams).

One had well-rounded, interesting characters. One relied on bathroom gags and big-budget stunts. Little Miss Sunshine was a hit. RV flopped.
