Nick Persons is a selfish player who owns a collectables sports shop in Vancouver. Everything in his life is perfect until he meets Suzanne Kingston, a business woman who has something Nick hates - children: Lindsey and Kevin. Nick and Suzanne become friends and share good moments with each other. But Nick's peaceful life gets altered when Suzanne asks him to drive her kids to Vancouver. After the 3 miss a plane and then, train, they drive. Unfortunately, Kevin and Lindsey hate Nick, and he has to try to make it to Vancouver, unaware of the terror and torture he is in for.
When Nick discovers that the kids are off the train and it starts to move, he runs almost the entire length on the train yelling at them. When the camera shows the kids from the front you can see that the train tracks start about 30 feet behind them, not enough room for the entire train. See more »

Hey, Mister, you got any 'Yu-Gi-Oh!'?
What you think?
You got any Dragonball GT?
Look. You come in here every day, askin' the same questions. We ain't got no Pokemon, no Digimon, no Buffy, no SpongeBob, no Beanie Babies...

This film was a hilarious piece of work. In this film, Nick Persons played by Ice Cube falls in love with a woman. Everybody he knows tells him that it is not worth it. Persons does not believe them... until he meets her two kids. Persons and the kids end up having many crazy adventures. Ice Cube and the two children were good at their parts, there were some funny jokes, and the plot line was simple, but great. The three actors have great chemistry and they worked well with each other. The screenplay was kind of lame, but everything makes up for it. I recommend this movie for everybody. It's rated PG for language. I give this film a 8/10.
