Selfish player Nick (Ice Cube) runs a collectables sport shop and leads a perfect life untill he meets his dream woman in Suzanne (Nia Long). She is everything he never knew he needed, but her two kids isn’t.
A worst-case-scenario movie that doesn’t bring much new to the table, but seen-that-don-that can be entertaining, especially when served with as much charm as here. Ice Cube (Ride Along, 2014) is good as child-hater Nick who starts dating a gorgeous single mum and share plenty of chemistry with Long, who he also worked with on cult comedy Friday (1995). Watching Nick struggle to convince Suzanne he is worthy of sharing her life is sweet, but the movie truly shifts gear when he starts his road trip with her two impossible kids and everyone know, that when it comes to comedies, new car plus kids equals disaster! The two kids are nicely played by Allen (Scholl of Rock, 2003) and Bolden (Mystery Men, 1999) and even though the movie screams predictability, it is such a pleasure watching the three bond that you hardly mind.
The game that Kevin plays in the car is Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem (2002).
