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.
While Kevin and Lindsay are in the train, Kevin asks his sister if Nick can catch them. She replies, "Maybe 10 years ago". This is a reference to Friday (1995), also starring Ice Cube and Nia Long, in which Cube's character, Craig Jones, can't keep up with Li'l Chris. See more »
When Nick and the children are trying to catch the train to Vancouver placards for VIA Rail can be seen on the train as it departs, and on the platform. VIA Rail is the national rail line of Canada. If they were at Portland, they would be catching AMTRAK. See more »

It is so difficult for everyone in the family to agree on one movie everyone will enjoy. "Are We There Yet?" contained a little bit of everything that everyone in the family enjoyed, opening with a laugh, offering some action and adventure to compliment it's variety of humor, combined with a dash of drama to tug the old heart strings; this is a funny film the entire family will enjoy. This movie is the new millennium's equivalent to "Home Alone" (starring McCauly Culkin).
The story is quite believable. Some men will go to amazing lengths to impress a woman, and most children will go to amazing lengths to "protect" their mother. This movie is what results from a collision of these lengths.
Ice Cube's performance was refreshing and surprisingly humorous. I applaud his effort and hope that in the future he will consider more humorous family films. The children chosen for these roles were a perfect pair, offering believable sibling chemistry.
Our children can never agree on anything. They all agreed that this movie was hysterical. My husband and I couldn't stop laughing. We are so glad to see a film the entire family could enjoy.
Thumbs up to everyone involved in making this film!!!
