Movie Info

Attempting to win the favor of the newly divorced Suzanne (Nia Long), Nick (Ice Cube) offers to accompany her children, Lindsey (Aleisha Allen) and Kevin (Philip Bolden), on a flight from Portland, Ore., to Canada to see their mother. A mishap with a corkscrew and a metal detector gets the troupe banned from the flight, however, so Nick is forced to drive the kids in his prized Lincoln Navigator. Tensions inevitably rise during the long road trip, but Nick is not to be deterred.

  • Are We There Yet? all too effectively conveys the claustrophobic horror of being shackled in a small space with two whiny, hateful children.

  • That we're supposed to find any of these characters appealing is just one of the mysteries posed by this so-called 'family' comedy.

  • A joyless road-trip comedy that's about as pleasant as a bad case of car sickness.

  • The humor and escapades are occasionally well-focused (refusal to board a plane for carrying a corkscrew) but more often rude and physically abusive.

  • The gags seem pretty lame even by the standards assiduously applied by most 8-year-olds.

Audience Reviews for Are We There Yet?

  • Jul 12, 2012
    Occasionally funny, thanks to Ice Cube. I really disliked the talking bubble-head, not a bad family movie for African Americans, but the real question arised from the film was: "Are we finished yet?" Say no to toilet humor please.

    Somewhat funny yet poorly casted, this film does not live up to its full potential.
    Jackson W Super Reviewer

    Your average comedy that had somewhat funny scenes throughout. A good film, but not great.

    "Ice Cube needs to learn to leave acting to actors. Not rappers, not athletes, actors."-Marc L., "xXx: State of the Union" review It seems that Ice Cube has not learned, but rather decided that because he can not get any praise in the action genre, he'll take a shot at the family genre. Needless to say, I'm missing State of the Union. This movie was painfully unfunny, painfully predictable and pretty dark for a kids movie. There was some good I guess. The child actors (Aleshia Allen and Phillip Daniel Boyden) did a surprisingly good job playing the kids. There on their way to successful careers. Unfortunatley, the characters they play are simply evil. They are spolied, obnoxious and loud. Not to mention the little demons are downright PSYCHOTIC! They enjoy torturing her mothers boyfriends, sneaking knives into Ice Cube's backpack at plane stations and GET THIS...THROW BUCKETS OF ROCK HARD ICE AT PEOPLE! Do they realize that can kill people? Don't worry, the mother is just as bad. They don;t say it out loud, but the mother seems to hate her kids. She basically gives them to Ice Cube's character because she's so sick of them. And know we move over to Cube himself. Once again, he cannot act, and most of his dialogue consists of "AHHHH!!!!" The humor was even worse. The humor in this movie includes horribly unfunny slapstick, bodily humor, peeing on old women and a talking boble head. That's right, a talking bobble head. Why is there a talking bobble head?!!!! The musical number in the movie is painfully forced, and is one of the biggest "big lipped alligator scenes" I've EVER seen. Cube, I'm willing to forgive you as long as you stop making crappy films and start going back to your fantastic rap career.
