Synopsis


Kingdom Come
Based on the play Dearly Departed by David Dean Bottrell and Jessie Jones (who also penned this screenplay), this new comedy from the director of Jason's Lyric looks at a family gathering after one of their clan dies of a stroke. In the midst of a sweltering summer, the Slocumb family convenes. They include Charisse (Jada Pinkett Smith), the long-suffering, frustrated wife of philandering Junior (Anthony Anderson); there's also the Bible-spouting Marguerite (Loretta Devine), who prays to save her hard-living son Royce (Darius McCrary) from a life on welfare. Lucille (Vivica A. Fox) is the devoted family peacekeeper who is struggling with a money-grubbing funeral director, and her husband Ray Bud (L.L. Cool J) has major contempt for his family and wishes he were burying them instead. Kingdom Come also features Cedric the Entertainer as an intestinally challenged reverend and Whoopi Goldberg as the family matriarch. ~ Jason Clark, Rovi

    Worst movie ever

    Alot of things are so wrong for this movie...for one, why LL and Vivica are the only ones without an accent? Everybody in the town has one, and even Anthony Anderson and Jada Smith, who left the town, had accents, but LL and Vivica who never left, didn't have one at all. Cedric The Entertainer is probably the only good thing about the movie, but his role as country-bama-preacher gets a little boring. Steve Harvey makes a cameo as the only radio dj in the town, but I think he was just practicing for his radio job because there's really no reason for him to be in the movie.

    some funny parts if you take it as a comedy, then it will be fine. Tried comedy with a non-comedic actor. Was still a decent show with the supporting cast.
