Anyone for a road trip?

I sadly missed that right of passage visiting colleges, living in a dorm, partying. I decided to do things in the opposite order.. get married.. do the corporate thing.. get a divorce.. start college.. have a baby.. and well the rest is still a surprise even to me.

Though I hate to admit if I had gone on College scouting trips I'd guess that my dad would have been just as picky and strict as Martin Lawrence is in the film. Though I'd bet my dad would have never let me go off to a college either way not without a lot of tears, screaming, and possibly some blackmail involved. heh. I never really gave him a choice on the marriage thing and believe me that didn't go over that well either. I love you dad. Strangely he does always know best..

Here is the official press release :

Burbank, Calif. May 2, 2008—Choosing a college can be one of the most exciting times in a high school student’s life—unless her overzealous dad decides to take the wheel for her college road trip. A hilarious and heartwarming family comedy starring Disney Channel’s Raven-Symoné and Martin Lawrence, College Road Trip comes to Disney DVD and Blu-ray™ Hi-Def with a trunk full of fantastic bonus features on July 15, 2008 from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.

A rollicking family road movie brimming with inspired silliness, College Road Trip tells the story of a noholds-barred battle for independence between a loving but protective father and his teenage daughter. Disney Channel favorite Raven-Symoné (TV’s “That’s So Raven,” “Cheetah Girls”) stars as Melanie Porter, an overachieving high school student with her heart set on attending Washington D.C.’s Georgetown University. Martin Lawrence (Wild Hogs) turns in an uproarious comic performance as the overbearing dad who wants her to stay closer to their Chicago home—and will do whatever it takes to keep her there!

The film’s charismatic cast also includes Disney Channel star Brenda Song (“The Suite Life of Zack and Cody”) and Lucas Grabeel (High School Musical). Plus Donny Osmond, Kym E. Whitley and Albert, the most talented pet pig in Hollywood.

A laugh-filled delight for parents and kids alike, College Road Trip is the “Best family comedy of the year!" according to Roseann Rogers of KPRC-TV (NBC) in Houston. Sandie Newton of KTVT-TV (CBS) in Dallas calls it “…an irresistible family film that will have all generations laughing ‘til they cry!” and goes on to call Martin Lawrence and Raven-Symoné “a dream comedy team!”

I'll be honest personally I was not a huge fan of the movie, but its perfect for the preteen set who I think would find the humor actually funny. Its a bit immature for my tastes.

College Road Trip is available on Amazon starting July 15th!

Disney has been kind enough to give us two copies of College Road Trip trip to give away to our readers.

I had my car stollen from me and it made me late to class. Luckily the teacher understood.

Well the only funny thing about college I can repeat here, is that my aunt went to the same college as me AT THE SAME TIME. Thanks so much for the opportunity.I'd like to see this movie because I love family, and kid's movies. Cause I am still a kid.

I don't think anything funny happened to me at college. I can't think of anything. I didn't live in the dorms; I had my own apartment and I held down a job so I was pretty serious. I did all my nonsense activities during high school. I was grounded in college. But, I can still appreciate fun and humor and Martin Lawrence is pretty goofy so I'm looking forward to seeing him in this movie.

My senior dinner at College with the whole class was fun. Really set up nice with fine linens and candles and great food. "somehow" a candle started a fire on one of the tables. The closest thing that was liquid was a carafe of red wine. Well, I threw the wine on the fire. Put it out but managed to douse my friends with red wine. A night to remember.

Wow, something funny from 10 years of college at Ohio State... just kidding, only 4 years, but I could write a book with just four. Panty Raids, Toga Parties, High street, did I mention High Street. Two stories pop out, lost my virginity under the actual cannon that sat outside the ROTC building, and second, I would go to the race track often, and any time I ever went, Art Schlicter the OSU quarterback was always there. He ended up kicked out of the NFL for gambling !
