2003 Movie
Rated: PG-13
1hr 47 mins
My Rating: 3 (out of 4)

8 year old Eddie Haley (Max Mader) just lost his parents in a plane crash, and is left in the care of his Uncle Frank (Stanely Tucci). Frank is an Air Force Major, and has no idea what to do with his nephew and decides to ask his caretaker Ernesto (Ruben Blades) and his wife Margaret (Dana Delaney) to take care of the boy while he is off in Guam building things.

Ernesto and Margaret raises Eddie as their own, and now tough teen Eddie (Ryan Merriman), who sneaks to get a smoke, is trying out for the football team at the new school where Margaret is now teaching. There he meets Francesca (Paula Garce), a girl he met when he was 8 years old. Francesca is very beautiful, and it hard for Eddie to control his feelings.

Frank returns to teach Eddie how to fly his late Dads plane. Frank tells Eddie, the Haley's is a flying family. After a few lesson from his Uncle Frank, Eddie is flying the plane by himself. Around this time, Francesca has an incident, and Eddie takes off in the plane to comfort her. While there with Francesca, who is in need of a Hospital, Eddie offers to get her there fast in his plane.

While on the way to the Hospital, the plane has a problem, and after some helpful guidence from his Uncle Frank, Eddie crash lands the plane without any injuries.

This was a good movie. Ryan Merriman, who plays the tough teen Eddie could have done a better acting job, but all in all, it's still a very good movie, and I would recommend watching it. You can Buy the Movie here:

Movie: Are We There Yet

2005 Movie
Rated: PG
1hr 35 mins
My Rating: 2 (out of 4)

Nick Persons (Ice Cube) is a bachelor who owns a small collectibles shop, and purchased a new Navigator. Nick seems to be living the perfect bachelors life, until he meets Suzanne ( Nia Long), a divorcee with two mean kids. While driving home, Nick sees Suzanne broke down side the road, and offers her a hand. The car wouldn't start, so Nick offers Suzanne a way back and forth to work, hoping this would lead him into a date. After Suzanne tells Nick, they should only be friends, he finds an opening, when the kids Dad bails at the last minute, and seems to force her into staying home, and missing her business trip to Vancouver, and losing her job.

Nick steps up, and offers to help Suzane, by taking taking her kids Lindsey (Aleisha Allen) and Kevin (Philip Bolden) to Vancover to be with her, which meant saving her job, and could get Nick out of the friend zone. What Nick doesn't know, is the kids have already made a pact to do whatever it takes to keep their Mom away from prospective suitors. To the kids Nick is a threat to their hopes of Mommy and Daddy reuniting.

From the start of the trip, it's bad. They missed their flight, then their train, which leaves Nick to driving them to Vancouver in his new Navigator. The trip proves to be pure hell for Nick and his Navigator. With the kids not following rules, playing tricks, wrecking the Navigator, and making Nick look like a kidnapper to a trucker on the Interstate and the kids running off on a trian to their Dads house. Nick has his hands full with these kids.

The movie takes a turn after the kids see that their Dad has started a new family and won't be coming back home. The kids then start to warm up to Nick and the trip seems to go much smoother, until the Navigator cautght fire while parked, and they only have 30 minutes to get to their Moms Party.

They decide to hitchhack and the kids is pick up by the same trucker that thought Nick to be a kidnapper, and leaves Nick behind. Nick does get a ride and trys to stop the trucker. The kids end up stopping the truck right across the street from their Moms party, and makes it on time.

Suzanne lashes out at Nick, eventhough he offered to get her kids their to help save her job. In the end the kids there was an happy ending.

This was a crazy movie, it had it's good points and it's bad. The kids in this movie seems so undisciplined it unreal. There were so many twist and turns it makes the movie hard to talk about. It has some funny moments, with alittle romance. I think the movie could have been better, but it still worth watching. You can purchase the DVD right here at a great price:

Their Daughter Theresa (Zoe Saldana) is taking her boyfriend Simon Green (Ashton Kutcher) to New Jersey with her to meet her parents for the first time and to announce their engagement. Theresa has already told her parents the important things about Simon, but she left out one important thing, that he is white.

Percy has already done his homework by pulling Simons credit report, and saying it was a thing of beauty. But the day of the trip, Simon quits his job, and doesn't tell Theresa about it. When they get to New Jersey, the first meeting was very ackward for Percy and Simon, and things go downhill from there.

Percy doesn't want Simon sleeping in his house, so he decides to take him to a hotel, but with no rooms available. Percy is forced to let Simon sleep in the basement of their home. To keep Simon from going upstairs and bothering his daughter, he shares a fold out bed with Simon.

It doesn't look like Simon is going to win Percy over, but after Percy finds out that Simon quit his job, he runs to tell his daughter Theresa about it, Theresa gets mad at Simon for lying, and Marilyn gets mad at Percy for getting into his daughters business. The two women decides to leave them by themselves. Simon and Percy begin to bond, they play football on the floor, and Simon teaches Percy how to do the tango. The next morning, they head out to get the women.
