Ice Cube has turned his frown upside down with the family-friendly screwball road movieAre We There Yet?We know the actor/rapper can use his trademark scowl to be funny (theFridayandBarbershopseries), or to be mean (Boyz in the Hood)--but can he use it to melt kids' hearts? That's the questionAre We There Yet?answers with a resounding yes for youngsters in the audience (which will be the lions' share), but it'll probably be an emphatic shrug for the grownups. The contrived plot has Cube playing a wannabe-player (as in ladies' man) and ex-player (as in washed-up minor league baseball star) who now owns a sports memorabilia business. His partner, played by Jay Mohr is just a throwaway, as is the talented Nia Long, the single mom that Cube sets his blinged-out sights on. To try to get in her good graces, he offers to transport her two bratty kids in his pride-and-joy Lincoln Navigator for a joy ride to a distant city where she's attending an emergency business meeting so they can have a New Year's Eve celebration together. This kiddies version ofRoad TripandPlanes, Trains and Automobileshas its cute moments, but plenty more gross-out moments which will please the kids no end, especially as the Navigator gets more and more trashed. Suffice it to say they all learn about each others' good sides and hearts are suitably melted all around--until after the credits roll, then you'll probably forget about the whole thing.--Ted Fry
Worst Movie Ever This is a movie with no plot or story. It is boring and impossible to watch without sleeping. Ice Cube acts like a child in this horrible movie. It is mainly about kids being horrible to Ice Cube when he is just trying to get them to their mother.The kids act like brats, if they were kind in the movie then it might have a chance of being rated 1 and a half stars.

Long Awaited Role for Ice Cube Ice Cube has been waiting for an opportunity to show his *softer* side. I imagine when he got this script it was a no-brainer - THE PERFECT ROLE FOR HIM TO SHOW HIS BREADTH AS AN ACTOR.
Ice Cube has really turned his life around and I LOVE watching him play such a hilarious part in such a hilarious movie. Some people seem to think this movie has no audience. But, those people would only know that if they've seen it. And, if they've seen it, then *they* are an audience! This movie DOES have an audience, that's inevitable (hence the 5 stars).
I really love it when people keep using older, cliche' sayings like "are we there yet?" or "i don't do mornings" or "must be MONDAY!". This movie is appropriately named, because it seems to be playing on a timeless type of humor similar to the sayings I listed above.
I have some silk screen shirts I made last summer with things like "are we there yet?" written on them. I also made one that said "i *am* the big dog!". Love it! This movie really encapsulates that irresistable, sassy attitude. Watch It!Cute - but ... This movie wasn't too bad. It had a good story line and was acted well, but at many times, it crossed the border from silly funny, to just plain stupid. While this obviously isn't a movie for Oscar consideration, I couldn't get passed the bratty, rude and undisiplined kids. They needed a good smack on their rears. Ice Cube is good. He's great whether he's in a comedy or drama and let me just say that he gets finer with each passing movie. Watch this and you'll have a laugh I guarantee, but if you can get past the annoying kids, you'll more than laugh, you'll enjoy it. Jay Mohr has a good role in this too.
