'College Road Trip' Trailer is So Raven

November 19, 2007


Taking what I think was as an episode of Who's the Boss? and expanding it to over three times its natural life span would be a tough task for anyone. Most would never attempt such a feat. That is, unless your standards for comedy fall somewhere between playing a modern time traveler, bringing much-needed sassiness to the Dark Ages, and dressing up like a fat woman.

Such is the case of Martin Lawrence, whose latest bout of hammy shouting takes him on a road trip with his daughter (That's So Raven!) to find a college, hence the appropriately descriptive title.

As much as the "I'm an overprotective dad!" comedy falls flat--and it definitely does--I was surprisingly amused by the not-so-subtle comparisons drawn between Raven and a piglet. (Why else is it there?) And with several taser jokes scattered throughout, I was even more surprised that they fought the overwhelming urge for a "Don't tase me, bro" joke. Or at least they're saving that for the full movie.

Take your own hilarious college road trip, under the cut. And thank Kyle for the tip.
