ARE WE THERE YET?

Nothing goes right for Nick Persons (Ice Cube) after he falls head over heels for divorcée Suzanne Kingston (Nia Long). She cajoles him into escorting her two children to Vancouver where she's attending a business conference on New Year's Eve. In Brian Levant's road comedy, Kingston's children, Lindsay and Kevin (Aleisha Allen and Philip Daniel Bolden), lead Nick on a roller-coaster ride of chaos in standard adult-bashing fashion. Unfortunately, in Ice Cube's first touchy-feely film, everyone speaks in unrealistic fairy-tale dialogue, and the conversations with his Satchel Paige bobble-head doll (voiced by Tracy Morgan) don't make it into the funny category.
