Our Score
A child-hating bachelor encounters two insufferable brats in this amiable comedy from Jingle All the Way director Brian Levant. A family-friendly mix of sassy dialogue, slapstick and sight gags, it combines the manic road-trip style of Planes, Trains and Automobiles with the adult-baiting laughs of Home Alone. Cast against type, Ice Cube plays a love-struck singleton who's desperately trying to woo attractive divorcee Nia Long. But when he offers to transport her two monstrous children to see her on a business trip, everything that could go wrong invariably does. The eye-watering clashes and cartoon-style violence that ensue are enjoyable, with Cube's deadpan reactions particularly amusing. But the film founders when it becomes overly sentimental, which sits awkwardly with what's gone before. The youngsters are also too obnoxious to be engaging, and passing off their outrageous behaviour as a product of paternal neglect is hard to swallow.


A playboy in a fledgling romance with a single mother agrees to drive her children 350 miles to see her on New Year's Eve. Unfortunately, the youngsters have never liked any of the men she has dated, and try to ensure the road trip turns into a nightmare. Family comedy, starring Ice Cube, Jay Mohr, Nia Long and Nichelle Nichols.
