Johnson Family Vacation
Comedian Cedric the Entertainer serves as both producer and star of this comedy about a family who discovers just how much can go wrong en route to a family get-together. When Nate Johnson (Cedric the Entertainer) is invited to a big family reunion in Missouri, he sees it as an opportunity to reconnect with his estranged wife and growing children, as well as a chance to show up his wealthier know-it-all brother, Mack (Steve Harvey). Nate takes delivery on an expensive new SUV, persuades his recently separated wife, Dorothy (Vanessa L. Williams), to tag along, and packs up his three kids -- nubile teenager Nikki (Solange Knowles), under-age wannabe rapper D.J. (Bow Wow), and precocious seven-year-old Destiny (Gabby Soleil) -- for what he imagines will be a leisurely drive from Los Angeles to St. Louis. However, between his wary wife, arguing kids, angry police officers, bizarre hitchhikers, bad diner food, and an unfortunate run-in with a cement mixer, getting from point A to point B proves to be just short of a nightmare. Johnson Family Vacation was the first feature film for director Christopher Erskin, who previously distinguished himself directing music videos for the likes of Missy Elliot, TLC, and Boyz II Men. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Can we do any better than this


    I feel bad for Cedric The Entertainer, because he keeps making bad choices in movies. He is one of the Original Kings of Comedy, but he keeps falling short on movie roles. This movie seems like they were trying too hard to be funny and it didn't work out. And lets not forget about Mr. Steve Harvey, who hasn't had a good role in movies since Kings of Comedy. Don't get me wrong, I like them both, but I just wish they pick better roles in movies like the other Kings of Comedy

    This movie is one of my all time favorite films. When I was much younger I always use to watch this movie it had that comedian good act and Cedric the entertainer played a good role in this film. It's one of those films that you can watch with your family and have a good laugh!
