The characters make the movie
Verified purchase
I thought I’d seen all of Martin Lawrence’s movies but then I found out about this one. This is a family comedy where Lawrence goes to a reunion and has to deal with all his relatives and his past, which includes a woman played by Nicole Ari Parker. It’s all predictable yet still funny.

The cast has the usual mix of comedians including Cedric the Entertainer, Mike Epps and Mo’Nique. Michael Clarke and James Earl Jones are also included. It’s these characters and their interactions that drive the story. Lawrence makes fun of how big Clarke’s kids are while Mo’Nique does a play by play as the women at the reunion insult each other. Cedric the Entertainer was Lawrence’s childhood rival and that continues into the reunion. I enjoyed it.

Difficult to Watch

I think this could have been a very funny and somewhat truthful story. In my opinion, the film could have achieved success if the profanity and sexual connotations and inferences had been excluded. There was no reason for the writers, producers and directors to include the trashy filth in the making of this film.

A hilarious family fun comedy.Guaranteed to make you laugh
Verified purchase
This comedy is loaded with a star studded cast including Martin Lawrence,James Earl Jones,Mike Epps,Michael Clark Duncan,Mo'nique,Cedric the Entertainer among many others. This movie is loaded with laughs,as Martin Lawrence goes home for a family reunion to see his relatives & he brings his fiancee along with his son. He soon realizes that family is more important than fame,also he is reunited with his old flame girlfriend. There is nothing but pure comedy here along with some underlying family issues. The film is a perfect feel good comedy for anyone to enjoy,it may be slightly inappropriate for young children(depending on level of maturity) because of decent amounts of sexual inuendo. All in all it is a great family friendly comedy i guarantee you will enjoy if you are looking for laughs.

A comedy fan.

Well I love comedy, especially those that ring some truth in them. This is basically a story of Roscoe (Martin Lawrence) who has a hit TV talk show (like Jerry Springer) and he is dating a pretty, but uppity women that just won a season of survivor! How classic, the movie plays several very funny jokes of the survivor show that is worth the price alone. ( Note, I think all reality TV is horrible and should be made fun of so there you go). Well Roscoe hasn't been home in a while (down south) and its time for the family reunion! So he packs up his survivor girl and his son and heads down south from LA. HIs family consists of Cedric the Entertainer (funny), the popular stand up comedian Mike Epps (who is dating a white girl), and the late, great Michael Clarke Duncan, who is his brother and the sheriff. Also to shake things way up is Mo'nique who visits the local jail on conjugal visits and the jokes that this inspires are priceless. Watch it! If you like comedy of color that is true to life.

This is a hilarious movie! Cast was perfect in it and there are plenty of laughs if you're looking for comedy. My ribs hurt every time I watch it from laughing so hard. Definitely worth the purchase because have watched several times since purchased.

I loved the movie and the story line but it was just too much unnecessary cussing with one of the characters ! Delivery was decent as well. I loved the cast though !

A very underrated Movie with an All Star Stellar Cast, 10x funny
Verified purchase
It's get no better with a great cast and three comedians, Martin L, Cedric the Entertainer, and Mike Epps. I love Micheal Clarke Duncan in this too. I could easily envision this movie as reality. As I could relate to the family shenighans at play. If you want a winning movie, this is your go to!

an ensemble cast brings big laughs
Verified purchase
This movie was fantastic. A great script with many excellent laughs to be had.

Mo'nique and Mike Epps stole the show. Cedric the Entertainer brought his A game once again. I was glad to see Martin Lawrence doing this type of comedy again, since I never did like the Big Momma series of films.

Margaret Avery, MIchael Clarke Duncan and James Earl Jones rounded out a near perfect cast. The only weak link was Joy Bryant. Her delivery was unconvincing, uninspired, just plain flat.

Aside from that one speed bump, An all-in-all enjoyable film.
