R.J. Stevens is a successful television talk show host who sets aside his perfect life with his sweet son and celebrity girlfriend 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 quickly put him in his place, reminding him that his name is actually Roscoe Jenkins. His sweet mother watches impassively while R.J.'s dad does nothing to mask his disapproval. R.J. would be content to wait out the anniversary events and go home. The arrival of an old girlfriend he once loved but couldn't keep during his adolescence changes everything, bringing out the competitive survivor within.

Funny comedy. There are some parts that maybe objectionable for younger kids.
Every time Mike Epps opened his mouth, you can't help laugh. The two dogs had a good time as well. Little Fifi stole the one scene.

Good: Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins (2008) *** 114 min. starring Martin Lawrence, Margaret Avery, James Earl Jones – Welcome to the Jenkins family; a fun, down to earth, family who are warm and welcoming but who are also going through all the pains and sufferings that most of us share. Roscoe (Martin Lawrence) left home to become a big-shot television personality to the disappointment of his father. Roscoe is also engaged to a spoiled vegan, hooked-on perma-diet princess, who does not see eye to eye with the meat and sugar-loving, normal folk - the Jenkins. When Roscoe comes home with his fiancé, that’s when the fun and drama takes place. Roscoe meets up with his childhood rival played by Cedric the Entertainer and the rivalry continues. I liked this film from the get-go; its fun, dialogue is witty, characters are over the top for some and very real with others; with great messages about the love of family and what really is important in life. This is one of Martin Lawrence’s best.
