Martin Lawrence's long, sad devolution from the poor man's young Eddie Murphy to the poor man's late-period Eddie Murphy continues.

Even with a brief running time, 'College Road Trip' is an ordeal that even its target audience will find dispiritingly lame.

A gag inducing over the top mess of a family film.

Matt's Movie Reviews

A Disney production that would seemingly be more at home on the Disney Channel than in the local multiplex.

Austin Chronicle

To put it bluntly, this trip isn't worth taking for the vast majority of movie-goers.

Audience Reviews for College Road Trip


Although its stars have solid chemistry, it isn't enough to win audiences over. College Road Trip is a bundle of gags and slapstick humor that doesn't even shroud the fact that it lacks a true script/plot. 2.5/5

Pretty much what you'd expect. Unless you are watching with a group of elementary school kids you are baby sitting (like me), there isn't any reason to watch.

This movie was not funny at all. It is one of the cheesiest and most ridiculous movies youll see. It had terrible comedy, because believe me, nobody I know laughed. It has a stupid plot that is boring, cliche, and stupid. Martin Lawrence and Raven Symone have something in common, they're both horrible actors. Overall if you want a good family comedy, get a PIXAR movie or something.
