Raven Symone and Martin Lawrence team up in this college road trip comedy. Kidzworld finds out if visiting schools with Pops is a good idea.

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Melanie Porter (Raven Symone) is super excited to be heading to college. She has always dreamed of going to Georgetown, but her overly protective, police-chief father James (Martin Lawrence) isn’t ready to let her go quite yet. He wants her to go to Northwestern because it’s close to home in suburban Chicago. Melanie plans a girls only road trip to check out schools, but her dad, of course, insists on coming along for the ride.

Car Trouble

So Dad James packs up the Police SUV and Melanie, her little brother Trey and his pet pig set out on the open road. There wouldn’t be much of a movie if everything went fine and dandy and Melanie got to the school without a few adventures on the way. So it makes sense that James jacks up the SUV on the side of the road and it ends up tumbling all the way down into a ravine.

Shocking Turn of Events

That’s just the first obstacle. Eventually, father and daughter end up skydiving, racing around on a golf cart, interrupting a wedding, and much more. Along the way they meet a dorky family and end up doing some pretty random song and dance numbers. Nothing goes according to plan, and there are a few scenes where people get tasered, which is always funny, right? You’ll have to check out the movie yourself to see how these crazy things all fit together, and find out if Melanie gets to go to Georgetown after all.

DVD Features

If you’re a Raven Symone fan, you’ll love the DVD extras which include a Raven music video, and video diary. The extras include two audio commentaries as well, one with Raven and the director, the other with the scriptwriters. Plus, there’s also a gag reel, an alternate opening, alternate endings and deleted scenes.

The Bottom Line

Disney has rolled out another family film starring some of its top talent including Raven Symone from That’s So Raven and Brenda Song from The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. The movie plays to a young audience, but will probably get at least a few laughs out of you no matter how old you are. For me, the star of the film was the pet pig who stole quite a few scenes, and the tasering action wasn’t too bad either. This isn’t a terrible movie all together, but it’s pretty silly and isn’t much different from other road trip movies you might have seen before.

    Here goes... Yo mama so ugly, the last time I saw something that looked like her, I pinned a tail on it. Yo mama so fat that she stepped on a scale and it said, "To be continued." Yo mama so short, her feet dangle off the curb. Yo mama so grumpy that they don't serve happy meals at the McDonald's where she works.
