Storyline

Melanie Porter (Raven-Symone)is a talented high school graduate who has selected a University 800 miles from home. Her over protective father, James (Martin Lawrence) doesn't want her to be so far away, so he cooks up a plot to try to convince her to go to a local University. On the guise of going to her selected university, he forces a visit to his preferred (close to home) school. This is a typical road trip movie with lost cars, bumming rides on buses and planes, covering that difficult time of life when a father loses control of his daughter. Written by D.B.

Trivia

At approximately 00:15:05 into the movie, Albert the pig is seen briefly near a crayon drawing (presumably drawn by Albert) of the words "SOME PIG". This is a reference to the classic book "Charlotte's Web" where the words "SOME PIG" are used to distinguish the uniqueness of Wilbur, the porcine main character. See more »

Goofs

Georgetown University is 2.8 miles from the White House and is well within the restricted airspace zone. It would have been very unlikely that a plane would be allowed that close without being shot down, let alone skydivers being able to jump from it. See more »

Amazing
4 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've read all of the other reviews and i believe in order to enjoy the movie it has to be for the right audience. I'm sorry for those of you who watched it and were disappointed because your idea of a college roadtrip is girls and booze. I'm about to go to college this fall and it hit so close to home. This was a great movie and me and my mom were both laughing. I was quite surprised that a Disney movie could have so much meaning for those of us who are in that part of life while also providing a clean movie for the entire family. If the critics tell you it was bad and if that's what you base whether you will go see the movie or not then don't go! You don't have to write horrible reviews so that others who may take something away from the movie may not go.
