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
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 »

Those of you who have rated this movie low seriously meet your psychiatrist. You certainly have a problem with your humor gene. It is a cool movie. Over protective parents is a majority phenomenon. In other words, a large portion of planet earth has over protective parents and this is a good non-exaggerative portrayal of such a phenomenon. In my hood, all my neighbors were like this and even my parents had some elements of over protectiveness. I was embarrassed by it on a number of occasions, but I certainly do cherish those memories of over protection, thought I don't endorse it. People, just lighten up! It is a movie that every college aspirant and every parent of a college aspirant should watch. THose who are out of college would certainly enjoy it too.
