In the family comedy Are We There Yet?, 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.
At its core, Are We There Yet? is the story of a man who is prepared to do anything to get closer to a woman. Despite the fact that he really doesn t like kids, he agrees to endure a 300-mile road trip with them, a move that comically backfires. Instead of using the children as pawns in the pursuit of his goal, he ends up falling in love with them.
