Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Martin Lawrence's long, sad devolution from the poor man's young Eddie Murphy to the poor man's late-period Eddie Murphy continues."
‑ Nathan Rabin, AV Club
"The comedian Sinbad once said that Hollywood seeks out original talents but then tries to make them just like everyone else. A case in point is Martin Lawrence."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"A gag inducing over the top mess of a family film."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"There isn't an ounce of real life between here and Somers Town."
‑ James Christopher, Times [UK]
"Imagine being locked in a car with Charles Manson, Idi Amin and Osama bin Laden. The worst road trip ever? Nope. That honour belongs to Martin Lawrence's latest so-called comedy, which parks itself neatly between the words appalling and god-awful."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"Even with a brief running time, 'College Road Trip' is an ordeal that even its target audience will find dispiritingly lame."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"It's a dark day indeed when a movie's funniest moments involve Donny Osmond."
‑ Ethan Gilsdorf, Boston Globe
"A Disney production that would seemingly be more at home on the Disney Channel than in the local multiplex."
‑ Steve Davis, Austin Chronicle
"Oh no, it's a Martin Lawrence family comedy, and it's sponsored by Disney. What kind of a sadist put those two together? Come back, Ice Cube, all is forgiven. Actually, please don't."
‑ Anthony Quinn, Independent
"This is one of those churn-'em-out Disney comedies in which every performer seems to be competing to give the most annoying performance in cinematic history."
‑ Christopher Tookey, Daily Mail [UK]
"It is genuinely, consistently, indisputably putrid."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"College Road Trip is the best Martin Lawrence/Raven-Symone/Donny Osmond vehicle ever made."
‑ Darel Jevens, Chicago Sun-Times
"To put it bluntly, this trip isn't worth taking for the vast majority of movie-goers."
‑ Jonathan W. Hickman, Entertainment Insiders
"Children might find the slapstick routines amusing, but for older viewers this is a mirthless voyage."
‑ , Sunday Times (UK)
"As expected, his plan unravels within minutes of leaving the driveway."
‑ Ken McIntyre, Total Film
