College Road Trip (2008)
Critic Consensus: Filled with shrill gags and middling slapstick, College Road Trip is woefully short on comic imagination.
A high-school student (Raven Symone) with noble dreams of becoming a public defender sets out to visit potential universities in the unwanted company of her father (Martin Lawrence) -- an overprotective cop -- in this road trip comedy produced by Andrew Gunn and directed by Roger Kumble. Melanie (Symone) is about to graduate high school, and she's ready to take her first step toward adulthood by hitting the road to explore her college prospects with a few close female friends. But despite the fact that this trip is strictly "girls only," Melanie's father isn't comfortable with the prospect of his little princess hitting the road without an adult chaperone -- and what better guardian to have while you're out on the open road than the chief of police himself? Of course, while Melanie's father only has the best of intentions, his presence on a trip that was designed to mark his little girl's emergence as a young adult leads to an endless series of comic complications. … More

Critic Reviews for College Road Trip
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 Disney production that would seemingly be more at home on the Disney Channel than in the local multiplex.
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.
