Family comedy Are We There Yet? is – unbelievably – turning 17.

It may seem like yesterday that Ice Cube's fun Hollywood romp about rebellious kids trying to sabotage their mum's romances was released, but it was actually in cinemas back in 2005.

The classic film even sparked a television spin-off with Ice Cube acting as executive producer, with all roles re-cast.

To mark the anniversary, we have a look at where some of its stars are today and what they've been up to.

From controversial allegations, health issues and links to Donald Trump, the cast has certainly been busy.

Ice Cube and allegations of anti-Semitism

Rapper and actor Ice Cube, who played Nick Persons in the movie, has had his share of controversial headlines in recent years.

In 2020, the US actor found himself at the centre of controversy when he was accused of a history of anti-Semitism.

It seems the allegations stemmed from the star's 1991 track No Vaseline, which apparently uses racial slurs.

Ice Cube also found himself in hot water when he was reported to have tweeted some memes that people found offensive.

However, the star responded to say that he was not "anti anybody".

"What if I was just pro-Black?" he wrote on Twitter. "This is the truth brother. I didn't lie on anyone. I didn't say I was anti anybody."

Donald Trump link

Ice Cube also came under fire for working with Donald Trump's team.

Some of the star's fans were unimpressed after the US president's campaign adviser gave Ice Cube "a shoutout for his willingness to step up and work with (the Trump) administration".

It transpired that the rapper had been working with the campaign on their 'Platinum Plan' for Black America, a move that left some people scratching their heads.

However, the star defended his decision and after someone suggested he had turned to the Dark Side he tweeted that "every side is the Darkside for us here in America".

He went on: "They're all the same until something changes for us. They all lie and they all cheat but we can't afford not to negotiate with whoever is in power or our condition in this country will never change. Our justice is bipartisan."

Tracy Morgan's health struggles

Comedian and actor Tracy – who was the voice of a bobblehead in Are We There Yet? – has had some health struggles in the years since the movie.

The 30 Rock star, who has diabetes, had a kidney transplant in 2010 and was in a serious accident in 2014.

Tracy was in a coma for two weeks and suffered head injuries and broken bones after a truck driver crashed into the back of a limousine van he was in.

Nia Long's awards success

Nia, who starred as mum Suzanne, has gone from strength to strength since her Are We There Yet? days and has racked up some showy screen roles and awards.

The star has been in TV series such as Big Shots, The Cleveland Show and Real Husbands Of Hollywood, and her films include The Single Moms Club and Roxanne Roxanne.

In 2014, Nia scooped the coveted best actress award at the American Black Film Festival for her performance in The Best Man Holiday.

She also won an NAACO Image Award for her role in the drama Third Watch.
