Why is everyone saying this movie is terrible? It is SO funny. All the actors from the first film are in it, and it is SO hillarious. The actors are great in this movie. I reccomend this movie to mostly kids, but if you're in for a good laugh, see this.

Now married to Suzanne, Nick Persons has bought a quiet suburban house to escape the rat race of the big city and to provide more space for his new wife and kids Lindsey and Kevin. But when his new home quickly becomes a costly "fixer upper" and he finds himself at the mercy of an eccentric contractor, Nick's suburban dream becomes a riotous nightmare. Are We Done Yet is the sequel to "Are We There Yet?". I really enyoyed this movie, it just a funny as the first one.

I saw "Are We There Yet" and I loved that movie. Although I have not seen this movie yet. Ice Cube is a wonderful comedic actor and I am looking forward to watching this movie.

I thought the first movie "Are We There Yet?" was a cute, funny movie. This thing was awful. Even my 9-year-old daughter, who LOVED the first movie, walked out saying that the movie was bad. The only mildly funny parts were shown in the trailers, the characters were flat and you really didn't care what happened to them. If you get a chance to see it, don't. Sorry Ice Cube, but I hope you do better next time.

There is very little story in this film beyond an over-confident man being over-confident in his property-improvement skills. Ice Cube buys a beautiful dump for his family, and then falls into a nightmare of rehab work, while living amongst the rubble.

The chaos is ushered in and directed by the annoying actor who plays the attending doctor on Scrubs. In this film he's the realtor, general contrator, midwife, code enforcement officer, and general nutcase. He's not funny, and he's not believable.

The only decent moments include comic relief when Ice Cube falls through the roof or a chandelier falls onto the dining room table, etc, and some of the family moments, as Cube attempts to relate to his step-kids.

This is harmless and watchable, but disappointing and over-the-top (in a bad way) overall. Purely a rental.

I enjoyed this movie! Nice plot, very funny in spots. It's a good follow-on to "Are we There Yet?". Academy Award material? - no. Good comedic entertainment? - yes!

This is the kind of film so bad that it deserves a public, near-lethal beating. And I'm in the mood to deliver it.

Someone in Hollywood seems to "have it in" for classic Cary Grant films. First there was "The Preacher's Wife", a remake of a truly fine film, "The Bishop's Wife" (with Grant, Loretta Young, and David Niven). (It's a Christmas film, thematically similar to "It's a Wonderful Life", and I can't recommend it highly enough.) "Preacher's" was apparently intended as a vehicle for the late Whitney Houston's singing. I watched the first 15 minutes, and was so upset by its awfulness that I couldn't watch any more.

Sunday night, while browsing the newspaper, I chanced across "Are We Done Yet?" and decided to give it a try. The opening credits said it was adapted from another Grant film, "Mr Blandings Builds His Dream House", an unquestioned minor classic. Grant -- an ad executive -- and his wife Myrna Loy -- live in a cramped apartment and yearn for more space. The film details their problems in finding -- and restoring -- a suitable house, along with Grant's problems in coming up with a new and improved slogan for Wham ham. It also takes some fairly astute pokes at the advertising industry, before it was fashionable to do so. The screenplay was adapted from a novel of the same name, by none other than Norman Panama & Melvin Frank.

"Done?" bears only a superficial relationship to "Blandings" -- it's about a man fixing up a house -- so one wonders why the producers felt obliged to give credit. (The idea was hardly new. A Jack Benny film, "George Washington Slept Here" (made six years earlier), covered the same ground. And then there's Buster Keaton's classic "One Week" (1920), in which he and his bride attempt to assemble a kit house.) I'd like to imagine everyone involved with "Blandings" rising from the dead and casting the producers of "Done?" into the deepest pit of Hell -- "How dare you claim that our infinitely better film was inspiration for your piece of ****!"

"Blandings" shows just how much film comedy has declined in 60 years. To get across how small the apartment is, Grant and Loy are shown in close-up maneuvering around each other as they try to use the bathroom's sink & mirror at the same time. The humor builds from the situation, not slapstick. But "Done?" has the family in a not-overly-small kitchen, splattering each other with food. It's not just unfunny -- it's stupid.

"Blandings" tells a coherent story. "Done?" simply moves from one lame, unfunny scene to another, without any sense of purpose. The writers have no idea how to write sharp dialog, or build a scene (or sequence) with a beginning, middle, and end. And naturally, they ignore common sense when it gets in the way of of the plot. Nick (Ice Cube) doesn't bother to have the house inspected (which the mortgage company would likely have required), and overlooks the fact the Chuck (John McGinley) lied to him about the house's condition, which would justify a lawsuit.

What is particularly obnoxious about "Are We Done Yet?" is that it was actually /made/. The money could have been used for more-worthy ventures. And as an unproduced screenwriter, I'm upset (that's putting it mildly) that the untalented doofuses who wrote this film (Barrett Strong & Norman Whitfield), were actually /paid/ for it. No wonder new writers have so much trouble breaking into Hollywood.

This is one of those films that, as they say, if it were a dog, it would shed. Utter garbage. Emphatically NOT recommended.
