Are We Done Yet? DVD Review

Are We Done Yet? DVD Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Apr 03, 2007
( Rating: 1 Star Rating)

Ice Cube is back in Are We Done Yet, the sequel to Are We There Yet? How does it compare to the first movie? Check it out!

Ice Cube may be trying to re-launch his gangsta rap persona, but he's not going to let a little thing like that come between him and the sequel to Are We There Yet?. Check out what happens when Cube packs up the family and moves to the country.

Are We Done Yet? - Left a Good Job in the City

Since we last caught up with him in Are We There Yet?, Nick Persons has sold his stake in his sporting good store, married his lady and become step-dad to two sassy young kids who are now living in his former bachelor pad. Feeling just a bit too cramped (especially when he hears his wife has twins on the way), Nick starts looking for a big house in the country to move the family to.

Are We Done Yet? - House of Horrors

Nick finds a beautiful old mansion and buys it on the spot from a friendly but odd-ball realtor named Chuck. It soon becomes clear that Nick's dream house is a real fixer upper and he takes on the job of renovating. When he realizes that he's not up to the job, Nick calls in the local contractor - who just happens to be Chuck. Soon Nick's dream house has been torn to pieces and family is heading in the same direction.

Chuck always tells Nick that "things get worse before they get better," and that's definitely true of this situation. Nick's wife and kids move into the guest house to get away from him, his start-up sports magazine can't get off the ground, and his house is in ruins. Nick is going to have to learn to play nice if he wants to get out of this situation.

Are We Done Yet? - DVD Features

This might not be the funniest movie ever made, but it doesn't scrimp on DVD extras. Watch behind-the-scenes features, bloopers and more. There's also a cool Are We Done Yet? trivia game for you to test your Ice Cube knowledge!

Are We Done Yet? - Bottom Line

Are We Done Yet could quite possibly be the least funny, least original movie you'll ever see. Essentially the movie follows Nick as he predictably burns himself, falls down, and hits himself with hammers - over and over and over and over again. It's like watching the least funny episode of Tom and Jerry on loop for the rest of your life... while being bitten incessantly by fire ants.

    What's Ice Cube Better At?

    • Acting. He's no rapper.
    • Rapping. He should NOT act.
    • I like his music and his acting.
    • Neither! He should stick to keeping drinks cold.

    Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
