After Nick Persons brings his new wife Suzanne and her two kids to live with him in his bachelor pad apartment, he soon realizes there just isn't enough space for them all. With a new baby on the way, the Persons family leaves city life behind for the wide-open country. Unfortunately, their dream house starts to fall apart around them so Nick tries to do-it-himself- and ends up in over his head. But when he hires wacky contractor Chuck whose unorthodox methods only make the destruction worse, the Persons wonder if they'll ever call this house a home.


There’s an urban legend that says some movies are meant for critics and the rest are made for the general audience. “Are We Done Yet?” obviously is aimed at the latter.

A sequel to the surprise hit of 2005, “Are We There Yet?”, this instalment has Ice Cube and Nia Long reprising their characters and boy, they are in for some unexpected surprises when they moved in to their supposedly dream home.

The first one has Cube‘s irritating step-kids on that long road trip as the main draw. This one has John C. McGinley (that gay cop from “Wild Hogs”) as a man who wears many hats literally. First, he appeared as the town’s estate agent then he’s the contractor, he’s also a mid-wife and a runner and a basketball player who rubbed shoulders with Magic Johnson. You can’t blame McGinley’s enthusiastic performance in fact he’s pretty good as the wacky Chuck. But to rely on him for the full 90 minutes feature film can be a stretch.

Ice Cube’s Nick Persons is a good responsible family man who tries hard to provide and protect his step-kids and wife. Unfortunately, the filmmakers turned him into an absolute walking stupidity that we find it hard to laugh at his misfortunes. And yes, I did pity him more than anything else.

If seeing Ice Cube falling off from his roof, hammering his hand and getting mobbed by bats is funny; “Are We Done Yet?” is definitely your cup of tea. Director Steve Carr even throws in some cute raccoon and squirrel to amuse the kids (we guess he’s still in the “Dr Dolittle 2” mode).

Like I said earlier, this one is not meant for serious moviegoers who appreciate a better spent 90 minutes of their life.


Philip Daniel Bolden who plays Kevin shows us his day on the set in KIDding Around on the Set: Making Are We Done Yet?. The kids have personal tutors on the set and it seem no expenses are spared when it comes to kids actors.

Chuck Mitchell Jr: Jack of All Trades Featurette - A short segment which touches on the John C McGinley’s character Chuck.


The DVD transfer is flawless and colours reproduction is bright and clear. Consider the genre, there isn’t much sequences that make use of the rear speakers. Sound output is acceptable overall.
