|Newlyweds nick (ice cube) and suzanne (long) decide to move to the suburbs to provide a better life for their two kids. But their idea of a dream home is disturbed by a contractor with a bizarre approach to business.|
"...best of all, the movie has no more sexual innuendo than an episode of "The Brady Bunch"... Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"Perfect family entertainment! Shawn Edwards, Fox-TV
Editor's NoteRapper-turned-actor Ice Cube reprises his role as the Everyman-sports-fanatic Nick Persons of the road-trip slapstick comedy ARE WE THERE YET? (2005), evolving from bachelorhood to domesticated family-man in the hilarious home-improvement farce ARE WE DONE YET? Now married to Suzanne (Nia Long) and stepfather to her kids, Lindsey (Aleisha Allen) and Kevin (Phillip Bolden), Nick decides to change careers, selling his half of a sports memorabilia store to launch a sports magazine. Just as he is about to get things started he finds out that Suzanne is pregnant with twins! Already cramped in his small city apartment, he decides its time to move to the country, where he can raise his new family in more wide open spaces. They are charmed, and duped, by local realtor Chuck Mitchell Jr. (John C. McGinley), who also turns out to be the local inspector and general contractor, to purchase a beautiful mid-1800's house, a "fixer-upper" on sprawling property, complete with pond and guest house. But their dream home becomes a never-ending nightmarish endeavor, and between Suzanne's pregnancy, Nick's magazine launch, and adapting to the country life, it's not clear who will implode first, the house or the family.Based on another RKO Radio Pictures film, MR. BLANDINGS BUILDS HIS DREAM HOUSE (1948), starring Cary Grant and Myrna Loy, ARE WE DONE YET? provides an entertaining look at how families cope, and eventually bond, through adversity, and the unexpected. Ice Cube (FRIDAY, BARBERSHOP) and McGinley (SCRUBS, OFFICE SPACE) have tremendous on-screen chemistry, even though their comedic styles are quite different, Cube with his pessimistic and grimacing double-take responses and McGinley with his overbearing energy and game-show-host grin. Despite all the tension, and some adult themes, ARE WE DONE YET? is a good, clean, fun-for-the-whole-family film.

|Often vilified as one of the worst films ever made, Are We Done Yet? is far better than its pedigree would suggest. Mining the home improvement milieu has been done before, and if you've seen The Money Pit you know exactly what's going to happen here. Nick and co. will move into what looks like a dream house, but it will fall apart before their very eyes. A group of incompetant repairmen and contractors will attempt to save it. Nick will have a lot of drywall fall on his head....read the full review|
