Are We Done Yet? plays it way too safe with generic slapstick and uninspired domestic foibles.

Movie Info

Having decided to ditch the city in favor of the suburbs, a newly formed family purchases a quaint "fixer-upper" that proves to be more trouble than they could have ever anticipated in a rollicking family comedy that's half sequel to Are We There Yet?, and half remake of Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House. Nick (Ice Cube) and Suzanne (Nia Long) have tied the knot, and now the couple is looking for a suitable home in which to raise their family. What better place to bring up adolescents Lindsey

Let's just hope the kids find burping raccoons and crumbling ceilings hilarious.

An acknowledged remake of the old Cary Grant movie Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House. As far as I could tell, that's because everyone involved was inspired by the syllable "Bland" in the title.

It's just awful. It's beyond awful.

Even though the cinematic foundation of this cheap prefab fluff is a message of family togetherness, the building materials -- boneheaded behavior, overwrought conflict, treacly sentiment -- have classic dry rot.

Fans of the first film can rest assured that a change in the director's chair -- Dr. Dolittle 2 auteur Steve Carr taking over for the presumably indisposed Brian Levant -- has done little to curb the overall tone of slapstick desperation.

Ice Cube's do-it-yourself sequel is too formulaic.

passable but far from inspired

July 15, 2007 Full Review Source:

Basically, the title says it all and if you're unlucky enough to end up seeing this, you'll be repeating that title for the entire 96 minutes. Avoid.

As unfortunate titles for cynically commercial sequels go, this one's a doozy

June 9, 2007 Full Review Source: Guardian

The only thing in Steve Carr's fatuous movie that earns a few giggles is John C McGinley's silliness as a new-age builder.

Oh, I do hope so. Why Ice Cube thought his wretched family outing Are We There Yet? deserved a sequel is baffling, since all it revealed was his complete ineptitude as a light comedian.

June 8, 2007 Full Review Source: Independent

Dull at best, painfully unfunny at worst, let's hope the answer to Are We Done Yet? is in the affirmative.

June 8, 2007 Full Review Source: Film4

Avoid at all costs.

McGinley, as it happens, is the film's only trump card, his madcap multi-tasker stealing every scene he's in and leaving the movie's nominal star for dead.

US audiences ate it up and there are just enough laughs to appease those whose tastes run to utterly undemanding kiddie slapstick and life lessons.

Even John C McGinley (Dr. Cox from Scrubs) can't save this lamest of comedies.

The slapstick isn't sadistic. But that doesn't make this sequel's propensity of scenes where animals attack Nick, and moments where he learns the difference between a house and a home, more than inoffensive.

April 25, 2007 Full Review

There's no attempt at even a plot, short of the all too predictable ending where it all turns out fine

Nothing is very funny in this movie, and everything is predictable.

Well, it's not as mean-spirited as its predecessor.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

Director Steve Carr is apparently the go-to guy for African-American comedy actors looking to destroy any last vestiges of already waning credibility.

The real question is whether or not Ice Cube's career is done yet.

Audience Reviews for Are We Done Yet?

This is a bit more simplistic then my other lengthy reviews but Are We Done Yet? is actually pretty good. Better than the first.

Funny, with some re-hashment of the first movie, but the movie was pretty funny
