    The frequent pop-culture references might not age well in syndication--Michelle Obama maybe, but Heidi Montag? Overall, though, there's enough originality and likability in "Are We There Yet?" to make it a pleasant destination.

    This family sitcom, adapted from Ice Cube's hit 2005 movie, is a modestly conceived, somewhat blandly executed story about a stepdad (Terry Crews from Everybody Hates Chris), his new wife (Essence Atkins) and her two kids. [7 Jun 2010, p.50]
  3. The alleged comedy follows this blended family's attempts to get along. The laugh track works harder than anyone here.
  4. It is so far minor stuff, inconsistent in tone and not particularly original yet fundamentally sweet and, if not stared at too hard, appealing.

    The series' overall sweetness makes up for a number of its failings.
  6. In the end, "Are We There Yet?" is a harmless little family comedy, and that's about the best that can be said. The traveling Kingston-Persons have come home, but it's not necessarily the best place of all.
  7. While the story feels thin and forced, it does let the show dig into Nick and Suzanne's real feelings toward each other, and reminds us that we like them both.
  8. While smart comedies have certainly been built on less, there is something so contrived about Nick's obstinacy that you feel as if you were watching a lesson in feminism that would be more sophisticated if it were rendered as children's puppet theater.

    For a piece of old-school sitcom traditionalism, Are We There Yet? gets the concepts of family and marriage all wrong.

It hasThis show is the worst it's racist to all races, I've herd them talk about Abu ghraib which has never been nor will it ever be funny. It has to be the most inappropriate tv show in the world and to be honest I'm so sick of these wack ass sitcoms that they keep bombarding people with. It portrays all them so stupidly from the crazy wig whereing mom , to the racially incorrect white guy Full Review »

    I can literally understand all this hate cause I didn't like the first season, but you know I love Essence she is one of my favorite actressesI can literally understand all this hate cause I didn't like the first season, but you know I love Essence she is one of my favorite actresses so I took a chance I actually laughed now after season three everything gets better. The story is fairly decent the actors Essence, GiGi, and Martin are why I really watch it cause they a extremely funny escpecially Essence and Gigi. The daughter is eh I like the daughter from Meet The Browns more. Kevin eh I like him better then Joaquin from Meet the Browns. Terry he was better in other things, but he straight her. Want my advice watch the show only for Essence, Gigi, and Martin (They the only ones who can make you laugh a lot). For the most part it's better then Meet the Brown, and def. House of Payne and For Better or Worse. Let's just say better then Tyler Perry shows, not movie, but his shows. Full Review »
