Are We Done Yet? Reviews
Carr tries to put one over on us by tacking on a sentimental ending. But as any homeowner could have told him, you can't disguise a weak foundation with a cheap finish.
An acknowledged remake of the old Cary Grant movie Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House. As far as I could tell, that's because everyone involved was inspired by the syllable "Bland" in the title.
'I can fix that,' Nick says each time a new problem arises in the house. How are we supposed to believe that when the filmmakers couldn't fix this poorly constructed sequel from its prefab origins?

Careers are funny, unpredictable things, and Ice Cube wouldn't be the first charismatic, threatening entertainer to don a chastity belt for a safe ride in Hollywood. Think Elvis Presley or Eddie Murphy.
