PLOT:

from Wikipedia-

The film is about Melanie Porter (Raven-Symone), a 17-year-old college-bound girl who is getting ready to graduate from high school and really wants to go to Georgetown University. However, her over-protective father, Chief James Porter (Martin Lawrence) isn't ready for her to leave and study so far away from home. Porter has other plans for Melanie; he wants her to go to Northwestern University which is 28 minutes away from their home.

Melanie's two best friends Nancy (Brenda Song) and Katie (Margo Harshman) offer to take her on their college road trip to Pittsburgh. Melanie is all set to go with her friends until her father surprises her with his own college road trip to Washington, D.C.

On their way, Melanie reluctantly visits Northwestern to take a tour. They meet a happy father and daughter duo, Doug (Donny Osmond) and Wendy (Molly Ephraim), who are on their own college road trip.

In the end, James copes with letting go and the final scene shows the family at Thanksgiving dinner. Melanie introduces her friend Tracy (who is a guy, played by Benjamin Patterson). James learns to cope with this, but Doug's daughter announces her engagement to Scooter (Lucas Grabeel) which causes Doug to finally freak out.

Movie Review:

This is a very cute Disney Movie - perfectly suitable for a Girl's sleepover party! If your little girl enjoyed The Princess Diaries... then I'm pretty sure she'll like this one, as all. There's something funny in just about every scene.

Would have loved to have had a few extra scenes/moments with the little brother - it seemed like the father payed so much of his attention to his daughter that the son was often forgotten. They had a very quick reconciliation moment - but I would have liked a little more!

College Road Trip is a very sweet - decent family friendly movie.
