College Road Trip [Theatrical Release]

College Road Trip is a slap-stick comedy that is a great movie to take your kids to, as long as they are young. The main criticism I have of this movie is about the marketing, since most kids that are college bound are probably too old for this. The jokes are very predictable humor. If your kids are older than 14, they will probably find this style of humor too childish for their tastes. In that way this movie is a missed opportunity for Disney to expand their market to all the older Martin Lawrence and Raven fans.

If you've seen the trailers, you pretty much know the entire story. Dad (Martin Lawrence) takes daughter (Raven) on a road trip to check out colleges. Antics ensue.

Martin's character is a very over-protective police chief who is a bit of a control freak. His daughter has long outgrown being daddy's little girl. He wants her to stay local for college, but she wants to go away.

There's a genius younger brother and a pet pig to add the cute factor. There must be a lot of young geniuses out there because little brothers never have normal intelligence in movies or TV anymore, but I digress. Raven's friends are cliched teenaged valley girls who aren't even from the valley.

Most people who initially may be interested in seeing the movie are either Raven fans or Martin Lawrence fans. Yet this movie was made for an audience of much younger kids.

I am a huge Martin Lawrence fan and I think Raven is very talented and funny. But both of them were under used in this movie.

I enjoyed this movie so much when it was in theaters and I can't wait to see this again.... I laughed so much! It made me feel better after a hard days work. I would even so my parents this because in a way .... THIS TELLS EXTACT how I feel about college and the NEED to GET AWAY from HOME! Donny Osmond was the Best PART, even tough, I like Raven and Martin. I truly think you should consider purchasing this movie... I truly can't wait for a second one with these two families.

This movie stars Raven-Symone and Martin Lawrence, in probably one of the best Family events of the year. Martin's humor, Donny's humor, Raven's great acting, and the pig, make this movie a must-see. It is really a great film, and close to the end, it becomes one of those movies that are cry worthy...

I definitely love COLLEGE ROAD TRIP.

Despite, it is sort of a Children movie, even though it deals with College, the movie is a great movie for all ages, and families!

Plus Raven-Symoné makes this movie all better!!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Raven is a doll. Martin is Martin in a G-rated version. I like the way they interact and I am glad to see a movie with a clean-cut black family. I like the fact that there is a Mom and Dad that seem to love each other and their children. This movie can be related to by all families. It gives a person hope that there are still decent people living decent lives.

A cute family movie. Of course, hollywood has to protray the parent being over protective when the should be making the parent look like they LOVE their child! Any decent parent is not hopping at the bit to get rid of their kids! Anyway, I think they bring out the best on both sides and make it a bit funny.

No foul language (which is surprising from Martin lawrence) and a good story to top it off. I can recommend it to the whole family.

When it comes to movie themes, there is nothing new about road trips and father-daughter bonding. We've witnessed it all from Chevy Chase's Vacation classic to the hilarious Little Miss Sunshine, where semi-dysfunctional families manage to conquer their destination. Likewise we have also been treated to touching father and daughter scenes from both the original and remake of Father-of-the-Bride to the more conniving episodes of Ryan and Tatum O'Neil's Paper Moon. Unlike these films and numerous others, College Road Trip falls short, as it offers nothing new in the line of plot or comedy.

It starts with a father tearfully giving away his daughter at her Cinderella wedding. He and his daughter are secondary characters whom we meet up with later. As the narrator quickly explains, a father doesn't lose his daughter when she gets married; he loses her when she first goes off to college. Hence, the plot and our introduction to the main family: an over-protective, policeman dad, a more liberal but peacemaking mom, their independent but well-rooted daughter Melanie, her brilliant child prodigy little brother, and a pig named Albert.

Since her birth, Dad planned for Melanie to go to Northwestern University, just a 45 minute ride from home, convenient enough for Dad to drop by. Naturally Melanie has plans for Georgetown University, approximately 1,000 miles from home. Realizing he can't shake the idea from his daughter's head, Dad quickly steps into the role of tour guide, and the trip begins, cop car and all.

It's no surprise that father and daughter are off to a rocky start.
