Are We There Yet?
Arnita D. Brown | USA | 01/03/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Nick, a smooth operator, is trying to land a date with a young, attractive divorcee, Suzanne. Problem is Suzanne is stuck working in Vancouver and miserable because she misses her kids. Seizing the opportunity, Nick gallantly offers to make her wish come true--and his own in the process--by bringing seven-year-old Kevin and eleven-year-old Lindsey up from Portland, Oregon to be reunited with their mom. What Nick doesnâ(tm)t know is that Suzanne's children think that no man is good enough for their mom and will do everything they can to make the trip a nightmare for him. Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy ride. No special effects, just plain ole' fashion acting, it's worth seeing.
It has it's moments, but there was a lot not to like too.

"Synopsis: Lifelong bachelor Nick Persons (played by Ice Cube) is a self-absorbed sports nut who likes the ladies but hates kids. Well, he finds the attractive Suzanne Kingston (Nia Long) and wants to court her, but he has to deal with her two children Lindsey (Aleisha Allen) and Kevin (Philip Daniel Bolden). Well, Suzanne goes to Vancouver, misses the kids, and since their biological father cancelled his visitation appointment with them, Nick is destined to drive the kids from Portland, OR to Vancouver so he can show her what a swell guy he is. Nick hates the kids, the kids hate Nick, so they kids do everything possible to sabotage Nick quest to court their mother. During the process though, Nick realizes he's starting to develop feelings for the kids and the kids realize how hard Nick's trying to be a good guy. Will it be enough to win Suzanne over? (News Flash: This isn't exactly a movie with a lot of twists and turns, so I think you can figure that one out...)

I took my sister to see this one and she enjoyed it immensely as a 10-year-old. I sat through it thinking "Geez... are they there yet?!" The kids were good at what they did and I could see a case made that maybe it wasn't the actors and actresses' fault this movie suffered. But the best way to put it is that you had a way-too predictable story reminiscent of any of the Home Alone movies that was full of stereotypes involving divorce (the dad who's too busy for his original family), young black men (of COURSE Nick Persons is going to drive in a souped-up SUV, right?), and improper representation of asthma attacks (Kevin suffers one in the movie and all it takes is puff from the inhaler to make him magically better. If that's all it took, I coulda spent a lot less time in the hospital as a kid.)

If you wanna take the chance on this movie go ahead. I think there's other films that I could recommend that would be a few steps higher than this film."
