1 Hour, 54 Minutes

Roscoe Jenkins has it all; a beautiful fiancée, a huge house, a best selling book, and a popular talk show. All of that gets tested when he goes home for his parents 50th anniversary.  I’ve been an off again on again Martin Lawrence fan. It seems like the past decade Lawrence has become somewhat of a novelty act. The films where he is the headliner wind up being themed almost to the point where I wonder when he and Ron Schneider will do a film together, its been that bad. Luckily some of the directors that he’s worked with know that Lawrence needs to be surrounded by a strong supporting cast so that the man doesn’t have to carry the load all on his own. Malcolm D. Lee is one of those directors (though I’ll only vouch for his turn at directing an Everybody Hates Chris episode and nothing else in his resume).
