Newlyweds Nick and Suzanne move to the suburbs to provide a better life for their kids. But the renovation of their dream home is proving to be much more difficult than they had imagined.
When Nick (Ice Cube, Barbershop) falls for single mother Suzanne (Nia Long, Big Momma's House), he initially doesn't have to worry about what her kids think of him because she just wants to "be friends." Undeterred by this statement- or his buddies, who dog him for loitering in the stalking-friend zone- Nick keeps hanging around. So when Suzanne finds herself in a jam and needs someone to escort her kids to meet her in Vancouver for New Year's Eve, Nick gladly opens the door for opportunity. It could be the best way to win her heart or the biggest mistake of his life. With more that one destination on his mind, Nick embarks on a road trip he'll never forget- and neither will you!
To impress a foxy divorcee, ladies' man Nick offers to take her kids on an extended road trip, unaware of the torture he's in for.
Ice Cube plays Nick, a playboy bachelor and sports memorabilia collector who dates a divorced mother of two young kids who never like the men their mom dates. Things go awry when Nick offers to drivethe kids from Portland to Vancouver where their mother is stuck for work.
Nick Persons is a dealer in sports collectibles who has fallen for Suzanne, a single mother of two. Their fledgling romance is threatened by a particularly harrowing New Year's Eve when kids are determined to turn a trip into a nightmare for Nick.
A stylish reinvention of the 1960's classic, "Alfie", this film is a humorous, sexy and often touching tale of a philosophical womanizer who is forced to question his seemingly carefree existence.
Critics and audiences alike have gotten behind Mario Van Peebles' candid portrait of his father Melvin's struggle as a young, black director during the society-shifting early '70s. Determined to make a film that matters, Melvin (played by son Mario) deals with two-faced backers, a rag tag crew, threatening creditors and various shades of Hollywood hypocrisy. Obsessed and with everything on the line, including his failing eyesight and family, his only choice is to stick to his guns and do whatever it takes to get his neo-blaxploitation epic Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song to the audience for which it was envisioned. The real-life father and son dynamic brings an intimacy to this inspiring and often hilarious tribute to the father of black cinema. The result is a seamless layering of entertaining drama and poignant documentary that mirrors itself from every angle and never loses its edge.
