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 (Aleisha Allen) and Kevin (Philip Daniel Bolden) than a quiet house in the suburbs? Despite their outward excitement at the prospect of moving into their very own home, the family soon discovers that dreams don't come easy as eccentric contractor Chuck Mitchell (John C. McGinley) clashes with the head of the family while forming a frustratingly close bond with his wife and two step-children. As the promising fixer-upper begins to pose a serious threat to the burgeoning family's bank account, Nick gradually begins to realize that the suburban dream doesn't come cheap.

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

Top Critic

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.

Ebert & Roeper
Top Critic

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.

It isn't gangsta, but it's winning all the same.

AV Club
Top Critic

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.

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
