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.

James' outlandish ruses to make his firstborn a Wildcat are fun; the push-pull parent-child dynamic generic, but sweet. But the writers comedy failsafe is "Cut to the pig!"

It is genuinely, consistently, indisputably putrid.

The comedian Sinbad once said that Hollywood seeks out original talents but then tries to make them just like everyone else. A case in point is Martin Lawrence.

It's a dark day indeed when a movie's funniest moments involve Donny Osmond.

College Road Trip is the best Martin Lawrence/Raven-Symone/Donny Osmond vehicle ever made.

College Road Trip may be mawkish and predictable, but some well-staged gags and several memorable contributions by supporting players keep the sap from getting too sticky.

College Road Trip is better than most Martin Lawrence movies -- much as strep throat is better than malaria.

Eyes popping and mouths agape, Martin Lawrence and Raven-Symoné mug their way through College Road Trip as if it were a silent movie -- which, come to think of it, would have been a lot less irritating.

The whole project is a cloying, artificial mess. The slapstick comedy doesn't bite, and the formulaic sentimentality doesn't grip. This is strictly phi beta crappa.

There's a nice pro-education theme struggling to emerge from oceans of clumsy humor here, so let's be generous and say the movie deserves about a C-minus.

Even Donny Osmond's sparkling teeth seem a little dim compared with the unsullied gleam the movie presents as real life.

College Road Trip is nearly as hellish as taking a long trip with a bus full of karaoke-happy tourists. Actually, that's one of the gags.

When all else fails, and the last faint possibility of comedy has vanished, the director turns on the sentiment.

Families seem to be extremely tolerant of taxing movie car trips. Perhaps the trick is that everyone is simply glad it's happening to another family and not theirs.

Not that we expected much, when all is said and done. But College Road Trip ran out of ideas just after they came up with the title and had the inevitable meeting.
March 6, 2008
College Road Trip is at its best when it drops any pretense of plot for sheer goof, and at its worst when Lawrence manages to out-ham even his porky four-legged costar.

March 6, 2008
The two leads have considerable screen appeal and decent chemistry, but are ill served by the material's sitcomish beats and mawkish resolution.

Not since Bob Crane put his dubious smirk to work in Disney's Superdad a generation ago has this particular set-up seemed quite so hoary.

College Road Trip is the kind of movie that its audiences will use once for blowing off steam and then toss aside as if it were shrink-wrap.

The tagline says it all: 'They can't get there fast enough.'
