Ice Cube has defended his decision to make family comedy Are We There Yet?, despite his peers accusing the rapper of losing his tough-guy credibility.

The 35-year-old star was determined to honour his young fans with the light-hearted film, as he maintains his previous movies, such as crime thriller TORQUE (04), are not suitable for children.

He says, "I've been in the business 20 years and to finally do something for my younger fans was smart because they might like my other movies but they're not for them."
