I would have loved to see a genuine love story involving Ice Cube, Nia Long, and the challenge of a lifelong bachelor dating a woman with children. Sad that a story like that couldn't get made, but this shrill "comedy" could.

It's been a while since we saw a bad John Hughes comedy, and Are We There Yet? more than fits the bill (even though Hughes had absolutely nothing to do with it).

Philadelphia Inquirer
This is not the plot of your typical Ice Cube movie. It does, however, combine the plots of at least three John Hughes movies.

Won't make your day, but it won't kill it either.

Cube is cute and Long is lovely, but the youngsters are too brash and smug to bear. At least there's a heartwarming end to the excursion.

Not worth the ride.

The Hollywood Reporter
Runs 96 minutes but feels like so much more. There is only one gag.

New York Daily News
The affable Ice Cube is all that makes this forced, unfunny film watchable, and, frankly, it's hard watching him waste his efforts on a movie so woefully cynical.

New York Post
A vulgar, grating alleged "family" comedy.

This gnarly and illogical little sitcom is bound to make any adult reconsider that next outing with the kids.

Four screenwriters are credited with this sloppy piece of work. Divide the embarrassment into quarters.
