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 »

This is very underrated...
21 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The previews do not do it justice. I expected to see a crappy film but i had nothing better to do. To my surprise...This movie was good,not great(10) but definitely not horrible(1-2). Adults keep in mind that this is a movie made for kids just because it has college smacked on it doesn't mean it's adult material! Though the movie has it's flaws it is a total package of family fun. The leads Martin Lawrence and Raven-Symone have a very nice chemistry together as do all of the cast! The movie contains clean humor and doesn't look to sex and violence to rake in money! It is a decent movie which is very much needed in the times of the blockbuster mad just to pull in cash! The major flaw in the movie is that it seemed incomplete and at the same time some scenes were unneeded! Again i urge you to ignore the critics and go see this. Oh and this has a B rating on yahoo! just throwing that in there lol! B(7 out of ten)
