A reason to be cruel to children
5 February 2005 | by dbborroughsSee all my reviews

The story of a man who falls so in love with a woman that he willingly takes her little monsters, er, children on a road trip is actually pretty good. The cast for the most part is quite good and the a script, while run of the mill is funny at times.

The problem is that the children that Ice Cube has elected to go traveling with are so rotten that you even the most anti child abuse person would slug them. They are awful. I understand that they are waiting for their dad to come and get back with their divorced mom but the lengths they go to insure no man gets near mom border on homicidal. Its over done and not funny and make them out to be hateful. I disliked them so much that I couldn't really enjoy the rest of the film.(No man loves a woman so much that he wouldn't have left them on the side of the road) If you can get past the monstrous children you'll like the film, other wise stay away
