Product Description

Product Description

Martin Lawrence leads an all-star cast including Cedric the Entertainer, Mo'Nique and Mike Epps in the hit comedy Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins. When a celebrated TV show host (Lawrence) returns to his hometown in the South his family is there to remind him that going home is no vacation! It's one outrageous predicament after another when big-city attitude and small-town values collide in this hysterical comedy critics are praising for its "over-the-top hilarity!"

From Amazon.co.uk

While its story might sound terribly interesting, Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins is largely a vehicle for gross-out sight gags and grotesque performances by performers who, in many cases, don't need to do such things. Martin Lawrence stars as R.J. Stevens, a successful, Jerry Springer-like, television talk show host who sets aside his perfect life with a sweet son (Damani Roberts) and celebrity girlfriend (Joy Bryant) to attend his parents' golden wedding anniversary back home in Georgia. From the moment he arrives, all the reasons R.J. left to reinvent himself on the West Coast become clear. His siblings and cousins (Mike Epps, Mo'Nique, Michael Clarke Duncan, Cedric the Entertainer) quickly put him in his place, reminding him that his name is actually Roscoe Jenkins. His sweet mother (Margaret Avery) watches impassively while R.J.'s dad (James Earl Jones) strikes one disapproving note after another.

R.J. would be content to wait out the anniversary events and go home, but the arrival of a woman (Nicole Ari Parker) he loved but couldn't keep during his adolescence changes everything, bringing out the competitive survivor within. Written and directed by Malcolm D. Lee (Undercover Brother), Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins promises rich comedy and dramatic flavourings, as well as a bunch of delightful actors doing what only they can do best. But Lee subverts the project for cheap and easy laughs, using his best material to do little else than bridge scenes of bad slapstick, bestial perversity, clownish sex and irritating, motormouth rants from the likes of Mo'Nique and Epps. This a hard movie to sit through at 114 minutes, one of those what-were-they-thinking-when-they-made-this films. --Tom Keogh

Format: DVD
"Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins," one of the better recent efforts from the funny wing of Black Hollywood. (It is certainly better than "First Sunday.") The film is written and directed by Malcolm D. Lee, who directed but did not write the hilarious 2002 film "Undercover Brother." Lee definitely has some jokes in this one--especially involving canine love--but it seems likely that the film's comedic quartet offered some choice jokes to the script and fed off of each other, upping the comedic ante as they went along.

Roscoe (Martin Lawrence), is a talk show host who is depicted as a decent but ambitious man who revels in the celebrity life he shares with his fiancé, Bianca Kittles (Joy Bryant). As a winner of the television show, "Survival," Bianca has transferred all the driven, maniacal aspects of her personality needed for that win to her day-to-day life. In a very L.A. sort of way, not seen on screen since perhaps Robin Givens played several roles as a Black man eater, Bianca keeps her world on a tight leash of accomplishment. She knows exactly what she wants, how she is going to get it and what is clearly unacceptable in her realm of the high life.

Sure, Bianca's depiction is extreme--women are sort of thrown under the bus in this one--but the men don't come off looking much better. Martin Lawrence, Mike Epps and Cedric the Entertainer compete with Mo'Nique to be the sorriest and funniest of them all when they all gather in the South for a wedding anniversary celebration for Roscoe's parents.

I a woman and a mother that is noticing that many "family" movies are getting more bold in displaying sexual content and the use of strong language that is suitable for people above the age of 15. I bought this movie hoping to have a fun evening with my family expecting a good laugh but I was left apologizing for the profanity and sexual innuendo displayed. It was too much and because of this, I was no longer interested in connecting with the great cast and good story. A thumbs down!!!

Was not able to watch the film, after 5mins kept cutting out. Used several DVD players all did the same thing. Could not see any scratches on it. . so very disappointing.

Only paid a few pounds for and the hassel of sending it back did not seem worth it.

I will throw my hands up now and admit that I am a fan of Martin Lawrence films. However, I must also admit that he has made some stinkers (Big Mommas house 2, College Road Trip, What's the Worst THat could happen?). This film is not one of them. Its just hysterical. Takes a few minutes to build up and then int's heart warming and funny all at once. Betty for president!!

This is funny. Brilliant family entertainment.
(Martin) Roscoe is his usual charming self, ignoring his family and paying full attention to his nympho fiance. His parents 50th anniversary brings him back to his roots and the childhood sweetheart who recaptures his heart. Plenty jokes to be got from this, the baseball game, trip to town, assault course and oh yes the dogs! Monique is her usual comedic character and has plenty jokes.
All round a good film.
I would recommend.

The written reviews on amazon regarding this dvd were about right. The overall movie was very good with some very funny parts. My only negative comment was that at times the story line seemed to drag slighty however the dvd is still worth watching.

I watched with teenage daughter who loved it. Martin quite funny in this DVD. typical unrequinted love story but he does get girl in end after some obstacles and dealing with himself and family issues. Enjoyed movie and would advise to purchase.

At first I thought that this was another movie made out of desperation, but it is actually really funny. Another classic by Martin Lawrence.

I will not say more, just sit back and enjoy.
