Description by OLDIES.com:
Rapper-turned-actor Ice Cube reprises his role as the Everyman-sports-fanatic Nick Persons of the road-trip slapstick comedy ARE WE THERE YET? (2005), evolving from bachelorhood to domesticated family-man in the hilarious home-improvement farce ARE WE DONE YET? Now married to Suzanne (Nia Long) and stepfather to her kids, Lindsey (Aleisha Allen) and Kevin (Phillip Bolden), Nick decides to change careers, selling his half of a sports memorabilia store to launch a sports magazine. Just as he is about to get things started he finds out that Suzanne is pregnant with twins! Already cramped in his small city apartment, he decides its time to move to the country, where he can raise his new family in more wide open spaces. They are charmed, and duped, by local realtor Chuck Mitchell Jr. (John C. McGinley), who also turns out to be the local inspector and general contractor, to purchase a beautiful mid-1800's house, a "fixer-upper" on sprawling property, complete with pond and guest house. But their dream home becomes a never-ending nightmarish endeavor, and between Suzanne's pregnancy, Nick's magazine launch, and adapting to the country life, it's not clear who will implode first, the house or the family.
Based on another RKO Radio Pictures film, MR. BLANDINGS BUILDS HIS DREAM HOUSE (1948), starring Cary Grant and Myrna Loy, ARE WE DONE YET? provides an entertaining look at how families cope, and eventually bond, through adversity, and the unexpected. Ice Cube (FRIDAY, BARBERSHOP) and McGinley (SCRUBS, OFFICE SPACE) have tremendous on-screen chemistry, even though their comedic styles are quite different, Cube with his pessimistic and grimacing double-take responses and McGinley with his overbearing energy and game-show-host grin. Despite all the tension, and some adult themes, ARE WE DONE YET? is a good, clean, fun-for-the-whole-family film.
This special package includes an 8-song bonus CD with songs by The Emotions, Earth Wind & Fire, Run-DMC, Billy Ocean, Aretha Franklin & others.
Newlyweds Nick (Ice Cube) and Suzanne (Long) decide to move to the suburbs to provide a better life for their two kids. But their idea of a dream home is disturbed by a contractor (McGinley) with a bizarre approach to business. -- Description provided by TMDb
