This supposed family comedy staring the usually blameless Ice Cube and Nia Long has provoked most critics to write, "Is it over yet?"

Are We There Yet? all too effectively conveys the claustrophobic horror of being shackled in a small space with two whiny, hateful children.
A joyless road-trip comedy that's about as pleasant as a bad case of car sickness.
The gags seem pretty lame even by the standards assiduously applied by most 8-year-olds.
These kids are going after perfectly innocent nice adults. They are some of the nastiest children in movie history.
Lacks the courage of its grape-juice-, mud-, and vomit-spattered convictions.
How much sweeter Nick's heart-to-heart with Lindsey and Kevin would be if the movie was more than a clichéd journey.
Less amusing than a game of license plate bingo.
It's a waste of time, and a horrendous attempt at family fodder.
With one of the most hackneyed expressions in children-based comedy movies "Are We There Yet?" fulfills every low expectation that its urban target audience will bring to their cinema chairs.
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.
Are We There Yet? is more interested in crass humor than in creating remotely believable characters that we might actually care about.
It's never too early to start that 'Worst of 2005' list, and Are We There Yet? is already a worthy contender.
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.
Fun for the family, but not for your funny bone
