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

In the intro, the college is chosen because the distance is 64 miles from home, a 28 minute drive. This would require an average speed of 137mph. See more »

Fun, Family Movie
17 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

A fun movie for family night -- even my husband laughed out loud. There aren't too many comedies out there that aren't vulgar or have nudity in them so it was refreshing to see something that was light-hearted and family friendly. (It is amazing to see how much Raven has grown up since playing Olivia on "The Cosby Show" and grown into a beautiful, young woman.)

When you watch it be sure to check out all the expressions on Martin Lawrence's face -- priceless!! (These are some of the parts where my husband just thought were hilarious.)

It is well worth seeing and I plan to get it on DVD when it is released.

Give it a chance and don't let the negative comments steer you away.
