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
Near the end of the movie, Wendy Greenhut tells Melanie that Melanie was her inspiration to apply to Georgetown University. However, it would have been impossible for Wendy to apply to Georgetown for the same class year as Melanie, since Melanie's character was already on the waiting-list. The application process was too far along for this to occur. See more »

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.
