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 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 »

Real laughs from clean comedy and a cute story line
What is up with the low ratings? This movie had us laughing all the way through it! Clean, somewhat predictable but in a fresh way. These kids did great in the movie; we enjoyed it a lot! Could easily lend itself to a sequel and another "road trip" kind of scenario. I see it as engaging and charming as "Home Alone" was so many years ago. I did think the mother's reaction at the end was a little extreme and that could have gone differently, but I didn't expect an Oscar-winning storyline with this fun, punchy, movie. I guess if there had been more swearing, sex, and violence it would have caught on better; seems to be where our culture likes to go these days. I say kudos to the writers and actors...you done good with this one and guess what...we're going to watch it again today!
