  • Summary: Choosing which college to attend can be the most exciting and thrilling time of a young woman's life... unless your overprotective father isn't quite ready to let you go. In the Disney family comedy College Road Trip, Melanie is eagerly looking forward to her first big step toward independence when she plans a "girls only" road trip to check out prospective universities. But when her overbearing police-chief father insists on escorting her instead, she soon finds her dream trip has turned into a hilarious nightmare adventure full of comical misfortune and turmoil.

    Undeniably fun for the kids, though it requires a camp sensibility in its adult audience. But in doing so, it is a warm return to the live-action Disney movies of yesteryear.

    At its best when it drops any pretense of plot for sheer goof (as when a Japanese sightseer belts ''Sister Christian'' on a karaoke tour bus), and at its worst when Lawrence manages to out-ham even his porky four-legged costar.
  3. Relies on slapstick scenes that are neither essential nor especially clever.

    Perhaps there will be people who do laugh at Lawrence and Raven-Symon screaming in tandem, or mugging their way along every tortured mile of their road trip, or unwittingly joining a sky-diving club and having to parachute into Washington so Melanie can make her interview. Heck, it was all really funny when they did it on "I Love Lucy."

    Better than most Martin Lawrence movies - much as strep throat is better than malaria.

    Osmond is all teeth and no talent. You’d think that his presence here might provide an opportunity for some tongue-in-cheek humor at his expense, but Osmond plays the comedy so darn straight that it’s painful to watch.

    The almost perversely colorblind College Road Trip represents a strange milestone in black film.

    Martin Lawrence stars in this dim-witted, run-of-the mill, family friendly comedy that is weak and unfunny. Do not see this movie; let it fall into the 99 cents DVD bins at Kmart. Expand
