I am not going to lie, I am quite shocked. But Ice Cube and Are we there yet just stomped a mud hole into the competition over the weekend. It brought in just over $18million which is double what Assault on Precinct 13 brought in over the weekend. WOW!
In Revolution Studios’ 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.
