Ice Cube was approached to do another sequel, but declined, saying that he wanted to go in a different direction. He then proposed that the movie idea be turned into a TV show, which it did: Are We There Yet? (2010). See more »

Ice Cube (maybe time to drop that moniker) stray a long way from Compton in this inoffensive suburban family comedy that borrows liberally from the Tom Hanks / Shelly Long stinker "Money Pit". Note to the various credited screenwriters, if you are going to crib pick a decent film to do it from. Anyway, our sports-obsessed step-dad hero tangles with one of the more frightening friendly characters in a light comedy played by the distracting-ly athletic John C. McGinley. McGinley's character controls the local real estate market, government and contractors effectively seizing control of Cube's life, breaking up his marriage, imprisoning him, delivering his baby and reuniting his family but on his terms. Take out the half-hearted pratfalls by Cube and his low wattage comic meltdowns and you have yourself an eerie stalker flick. Maybe one of the writers threw in a little "Single White Female" as well. In short, the movie does follow a familiar arc and there's just enough goofiness to avoid being really awful.
