"Are We There Yet?" has a clever title, but that's the only good thing about the movie. It's an absolutely torturous road movie which has got to be one of the worst films made in recent years. Basically, Nick, played by Ice Cube, gets a crush on a single mother, only they more or less develop a platonic relationship instead. She has two demon children who don't want her to date anybody. They are selfish and generally terrible monsters. They barely seem to have a shred of decency, meaning that any children in the audience won't identify with them. This is a huge problem. Unfortunately, none of the characters in this film are at all likable, except maybe Nick. Poor old Nick offers to drive the children across the country in his new car as a huge favour for the mother. Huge mistake. Here begins a part of the film even worse than the beginning where everything that could possibly go wrong goes wrong. Bad things happen to Nick, his car starts to become a wreck, and this is supposed to be funny? In order to make people like this silly sort of humour, you need to make sure the children are sweet, and those being beaten up are bad (see "Home Alone"). In this case, two demons are ruining things for a generally nice guy doing good deeds and although he probably wants to get inside their mother's pants, he isn't a nasty person. There is a part where Nick gets bashed by a deer the thing is so obviously computer-generated, and Ice Cube's reactions are so over-the-top, it is extremely painful to watch. The two children weren't very good actors, and Ice Cube wasn't much better. Avoid this horrible escapade at all costs!
