Following the events of ''[[Are We There Yet?

He has also sold his sports memorabilia store to his best friend, Marty (played by [[Jay Mohr]] in the first film). While getting ready for an interview with [[Magic Johnson]], Suzanne tells Nick that she is pregnant and they later find out that there will be twins.

For more space, Suzanne and Nick go check out a house, although Lindsey and Kevin – mainly the former – are against it. They meet Chuck Mitchell Jr. ([[John C. McGinley]]) there, and after some talking Nick decides to take the house. But he didn't get it inspected first and they find mold in the house, so Nick is angry with Chuck as he almost destroys their house. Meanwhile, Lindsey sneaks out to go to a party and when Nick finds out, he grounds her. He finally decides to fire Chuck, which causes Suzanne to take the kids and move to the guest house, with the parting shot ''You're the one who's tearing this family apart!'' After taking some time to think, Nick decides to fix the house on his own and also to apologize to Chuck especially when he was told that Chuck lost his wife few years previously. Chuck responds by bringing his friends to help, including Lindsey and Kevin.

After Suzanne gives birth to twins boys, the movie ends six months later with a big barbecue in their backyard at which Nick debuts his new magazine titled ''Are We Done Yet?'', based on his experience building the house.
