DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This is a very broad, sometimes bawdy, comedy aimed at an urban audience. Despite the PG-13 rating, there are a number sexual references and a fair amount of strong language that will make it inappropriate for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average It's not the unevenness of the comedy that kills Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins but the illegitimacy of the drama.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average ...there's little to distinguish this oddly mean-spirited comedy about a television talk-show host who ventures back to his Georgia home for his parents' 50th wedding anniversary.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 99 moviegoers:For a silly little comedy these are FANTASTIC REVIEWS from all ages, both males and females. It's very unusual to see so many very high reviews for a simple movie like this. Equally important is that there are virtually no low reviews. The critics may not be able to agree on this movie's worth, but moviegoers certainly agree that "Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins" is a "Must See" movie!

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Talk-show sensation RJ Stevens (Martin Lawrence) left behind his modest Southern upbringing and family name to transform into a self-help guru dispensing his "Team of Me" philosophy to millions of adoring fans. With a reality-TV-star fiancée and money to burn, there's no piece of the Hollywood dream RJ hasn't achieved. 

After his parents request that he come home for their 50th wedding anniversary, the TV host packs up his 10-year-old son and diva bride-to-be and heads back to Georgia. It's a chance to prove to his family that he's no longer the awkward kid they relentlessly picked on. At least, that's the plan...

But when his crazy, lovable family calls him on his big-city attitude and challenges him at every turn, RJ is forced to take a hard look at the man he's become. He may be a superstar in L.A., but he's just one of the guys in Dry Springs as folks say Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins.
