Ice Cube has let so many of his hard edges melt off that he can't even manage a decent tantrum here.
| Original Score: 1/5
I would have loved to see a genuine love story involving Ice Cube, Nia Long, and the challenge of a lifelong bachelor dating a woman with children. Sad that a story like that couldn't get made, but this shrill 'comedy' could.
| Original Score: 2/4
How much sweeter Nick's heart-to-heart with Lindsey and Kevin would be if the movie was more than a clichéd journey.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
The longest, naggiest, car-sickiest travel with children is less tedious than this weak and dragged-out generic fluff.
| Original Score: C
Less amusing than a game of license plate bingo.
| Original Score: 2/5
A commercial for Military School.
| Original Score: 1/4
Abandons modestly raucous situations and physical gags in favor of sentimental filler about assuming responsibility.
You think, Hey, these kids have put Nick through every conceivable indignity except kicking him in the groin! Then, sure enough, one of them kicks Nick in the groin.
Is this what passes for family entertainment these days?
These kids are going after perfectly innocent nice adults. They are some of the nastiest children in movie history.
The kids are so horrendous in road romp Are We There Yet? that Ice Cube turns out to be the adorable one.
It's both a romantic fable and a hell movie for wannabe players - each in all the wrong measures.
If I hadn't spent the majority of the film's running time coming up with alternate titles (Is This Thing Over Yet?), I'd almost think that Cube had made a fruitful step.
Ice Cube's Are We There Yet? strands the genial rapper in Home Alone-style high jinks
| Original Score: 2.4
The type of fluff usually reserved for the likes of Tim Allen or a post-Nutty Professor Eddie Murphy.
It's like Planes, Trains and Automobiles, but with Steve Martin replaced by Ice Cube and John Candy replaced by two spiteful, hateful children who are unworthy of love.
| Original Score: D
Are We There Yet? is an appalling experience that no adult (or kid for that matter) should be subjected to. On the plus side, it makes for great birth control.
| Original Score: F
This somewhat schizophrenic comedy may be expressing Cube's own ambivalence about parting ways with his NWA inner bad boy and embracing fatherhood and all of its virtuous authority figure dimensions.
The bad news is that the inclusion of a bobble-head doll is not the worst part of this disappointing family comedy.
| Original Score: 2/10
