Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Actors such as Michael Clarke Duncan, Mo'Nique, Mike Epps and Cedric the Entertainer have been persuaded by writer-director Malcolm D. Lee to do crass routines that should have gone out with minstrel shows.
Rotten: There's little to distinguish this oddly mean-spirited comedy.
Rotten: Writer-director Malcolm D. Lee sets out to prove that you can go home again, but the lesson apparently is that it's going to be painful for everyone involved (audiences included).
Rotten: Truth be told, everyone and everything about Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins is pretty unlikable.
H I L A R I O U S!!!! MUST SEE...
I'll admit, I thought this movie was going to be TERRIBLE. But how can a movie with so many black superstars (Martin Lawrence, Michael Clark Duncan, Cedric The Entertainer, Earl Jones, Mo'nique) be that bad. I WAS PROVEN WRONG!! This movie is one of the funniest I have seen in a while. It has everything a great movie should have; great storyline, great laughs, heart and an outstanding cast. There is not a moment that you will not laugh while watching this film. Everyone in this film is hilarious, but Mo'nique was definitely my favorite. The actors in this film look and act like a real family. Very believable! I rented it first. It was so good, I had to buy it! You will not go wrong by watching this film.
make it avalabale to RENT!!
All Star Comedy !!!
This is one of the funniest movies Martin has done in a long time. The casting director is spot on with supporting actors. I believe this is one should buy! Unfortunately you have no choice here on iTunes with their staggered rental dates. Get with the program Apple and make these titles available for rent the same day they are released. Or all of your customers will just go to $1 Redbox or worse blockbuster!
