Storyline Heading
Nick, a smooth operator, is trying to land a date with Suzanne. Problem is Suzanne, a divorcee, is stuck working in Vancouver and miserable because she misses her kids. Seizing the opportunity, Nick gallantly offers to make her wish come true - and his own in the process - by bringing her kids up from Portland, Oregon to be reunited with their mom. What Nick doesn't know is that Suzanne's children think that no man is good enough for their mom and will do everything they can to make the trip a nightmare for him.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average I would have loved to see a genuine love story involving Ice Cube, Nia Long, and the challenge of a lifelong bachelor dating a woman with children. Sad that a story like that couldn't get made, but this shrill "comedy" could. Maybe it's the filmmakers who don't like children. They certainly don't seem to know very much about them.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average "Are We There Yet?" is not worth the ride. As it meanders in predictable circles, Are We There Yet? never arrives at any entertaining destination. There are several feeble efforts to make us chuckle, gross us out with the obligatory bodily function gags and tug on our heartstrings. Because of the non-stop cinematic clichés, most moviegoers will be itching to take a detour.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 215 moviegoer opinions. As could be expected, children loved this movie. Teens, especially females, also enjoyed "Are We There Yet?" very much. Older moviegoers weren't too far behind. Approximately three-quarters of them, both male and female, truly enjoyed this movie and most of the remaining moviegoers rated it as a decent movie. No one rated it real low. I would say "Are We There Yet?" is worth both your time and money. It's certainly not a great movie, but I doubt that anyone would go expecting greatness. It's simply a fun and entertaining couple of hours at the movies for the entire family.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Nick (Ice Cube), a smooth operator, is trying to land a date with a young, attractive divorcee, Suzanne (Nia Long). Problem is Suzanne is stuck working in Vancouver and miserable because she misses her kids. Seizing the opportunity, Nick gallantly offers to make her wish come true - and his own in the process - by bringing seven-year-old Kevin (Philip Daniel Bolden) and eleven-year-old Lindsey (Aleisha Allen) up from Portland, Oregon to be reunited with their mom. 

What Nick doesn't know is that Suzanne's children think that no man is good enough for their mom and will do everything they can to make the trip a nightmare for him.
Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
