ARE WE DONE YET? (Theatrical Release USA 2007)

Ben Meyers’ rating—3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Are We Done Yet?—sequel film to Are We There Yet?—has toned down the rowdiness of the children and become more family friendly as it concentrates on the remodeling of a home for new baby twins that are due. While the concept of the agonies of remodeling an existing house is not new (see Cary Grant’s 1948 Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House), Ice Cube adds his own unique and light touch to the experience. Nothing new, but it qualifies as a family friendly film and is a good share movie for an evening with the children.

Storyline

Nick Person’s (Ice Cube) wife, Suzanne Persons (Nia Long), is about to have twins and they need more house room. They buy a fixer-upper and hire Chuck Mitchell, Jr. (John C. McGinley) to do the remodeling. After much frustration with Chuck, Nick fires Chuck and decides to do the remodeling himself.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Steve Carr for his directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producers Steve Carr, Derek Dauchy, Neil A. Machlis, Aaron Ray, and Heidi Santelli for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Chuck Mitchell, Jr. (John C. McGinley), Mr. Rooney (Jonathan Katz), Mrs. Rooney (Linda Kash), Russian Contractor (Alexander Kalugin), and Billy Pulu (Dan Joffre).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It’s more family friendly than Money Pit, but still begs the question: Why are we doing this storyline again?
