3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable and Yet Disturbing August 23, 2006
Format:DVD
I have to confess that I really enjoyed this movie. The Ice Cube of today is a long way removed from the gun toting, foul mouthed Ice Cube of the gang movie and hip hop culture of the early 1990s. Don't get me wrong: Boyz in the Hood is an important film, and his early rap albums are some of the best in the genre.

But in this movie, Ice Cube is downright loveable and cuddly, and he gives a refreshingly domesticated performance as Nick Persons. Nick tries to woo an attractive divorcee (Nia Long) into dating him by taking her kids on a long distance trip to Vancouver. I guess the idea is that if he can do her this favor and show that he is making an effort to bond with the children, she will receive him.

But everything that could possibly go wrong on this trip goes wrong. The kids turn out to be hellishly behaved kids, almost as bad as some of the characters that Ice Cube has played in the past, and undeniably more annoying.

The things the kids do to torture poor Nick can hardly be construed as humor in retrospect, but that is how the gags are presented. The movie turns around at the halfway point when Nick starts to love the children in spite of the fact that they are abusing him, and the kids start to love Nick in spite of the fact that he likes their mom.

Up until the movie's midway point, you can't help but wonder, "Who in the world would want anything to do with these rotten kids? Why doesn't Nick just turn around and drop them off back the house and movie on with his life?" The movie's answer is a poignant tribute to unconditional parental love.

The gags are cruel, the kids are mean, and Nick's Lincoln Navigator is destined for eternal destruction, but the movie ends up winning you over after a faltering start.

2.0 out of 5 stars All over the place and never quite went anywhere February 13, 2006
Format:DVD
There is nothing wrong with a contrived conflict to move the plot along, especially in a slapstick kid's comedy. However, if a movie is not really that funny, then contrived conflict is just another annoyance.

In "Are We There Yet," Ice Cube plays Nick, the owner of an upscale sports memorabilia store and a "Playa." Nick is struck by lightning when he scopes Suzanne (Nia Long) across the street from his store, but is just as quickly turned off when he sees Suzanne's two children, Lindsey (Aleisha Allen) and Kevin (Philip Bolden.) By chance, Suzanne's car stalls on a deserted highway on a rainy night, and Nick gets the chance to get to know Suzanne as a person, not to mention to show off his new, tricked-out Lincoln Navigator. Lindsey and Kevin are convinced that their parents will eventually reunite, so the two do everything in their clever and bratty little heads to keep potential suitors away from their mom. However, when the children's father is unable to take them, Nick volunteers to fly with the kids to Vancouver where Suzanne has a business event. However, after a series of unfortunate, unlikely, and manufactured events, Nick decides to drive the kids to Vancouver in the Navigator. Let's just say things get ugly for Nick.

In general, such an adventure will eventually produce either a likeable protagonist, moral transformation of the antagonists, or both. `Are We There Yet' fails to accomplish either. Nick is inconsistent in his approach to the Lindsey and Kevin, and he varies in his desire to strangle or to hug the two ornery little brats. (I can't say that I could have blamed him if Nick did actually strangle the kids. At least Nick would have gone to prison and the movie would have ended there.

2.0 out of 5 stars future parents of the world beware September 13, 2006
Format:DVD
"Are We There Yet?" is a dopey, ill-conceived, one-note comedy that seems designed to turn prospective parents off childrearing forever.

Nia Long plays a beautiful divorcee whose two obnoxious brats naively believe that some day their estranged parents will reconcile and they will be a united family once again. To this end, they devise elaborate schemes to sabotage her chances with any man unfortunate enough to show the slightest romantic interest in her. Enter Nick Persons (Ice Cube), a child-hating bachelor, who falls for Suzanne but who balks at the prospect of taking on a ready-made family. Nevertheless, he reluctantly agrees to transport the children from Portland where they live to Vancouver where their mother is attending a convention. Predictably, the trip turns out to be a literal hell on wheels for the inexperienced, hapless young man, with the children creating serious havoc both to his person and to his psyche every step of the way.

I suppose that small children may enjoy some of the antics contained herein, but no reasonable, thinking adult will derive even the teensiest kernel of enjoyment from this film. Hampered by its formulaic, cookie cutter plotting, the movie provides little more than an endless stream of inane pratfalls, potty humor and gross out gags, sinking so low as to include a talking bobble head doll and a boxing deer in a desperate effort to obtain laughs. The performances are poor across the board, but, in all fairness to the actors, one has to consider the material they've been handed to work with before judging them too harshly. Ah well, at least the Northwest scenery is worth looking at.
