It was pretty stupid. I don't like that Cedric the Entertainer guy (what a stupid name!).

Fun movie...but still like National Lampoon's Vacation a whole lot better. Instead of going to Wally World...the Johnson family heads to a family reunion in Missouri. Of course, the road trip runs into many obstacles and pot holes. Cedric the Entertainer always makes me laugh. Bow Wow was decent. And yes...Solange Knowles totally looks like Beyonce. Vanessa Williams still gets me going!

I almost walked out of this movie after the first 15 minutes. It was slow, and boooooring. I only finished it because my best friend kept "giving it a chance"... waiting for Cedric the Entertainer to live up to his name. A waste of time.

This movie fell a little flat for me. The characters were pretty much unbelievable, and they'd like you to believe that young black men really act that way...they do, but Bow Wow's version was just a bit over the top. There were a few funny moments, but not enough, and Steve Harvey's character was just not really funny. I'm glad I netflixed it and didn't go to the theater to see this.

Cedric the Entertainer gets himself and his family into all kinds of trouble on the way home to his family reunion.

The usual family vacation where nothing ever goes right except disaster, it was alright, but will never compare to the nationsl lampoons vacation movies.

F*** this movie, and f*** the rating you morons have given it. Take a film class at a junior college and learn a few things. :p

I rented this one on a Saturday when I was bored as hell. I figured that it could be funny ...

And I was wrong, so wrong.

Cedric is decent, but his family sucks. Once they get to the renunion it gets better, but that's not until the end.

This was hilarious! Really enjoyed Cedric the Entertainer in this film. If you're in need of a laugh, then this movie is one to watch.
July 25, 2007
This is one of those movies that I saw because it was late at night and nothing else was on Starz. It can be funny in some places and ass numbingly boring in others.

One of the WORST movies I've ever seen. Absolutely TERRIBLE. Don't trust Flixster's rating, look it up on IMDB.

this movie was funny it was about a family i think everybody played the role good this was a good movie
March 9, 2007
My pray is that my family will never have that much drama. I hope the vacations that we take will never be that crazy.
July 6, 2006
Funny movie about a vacation. i like the ending the most. u know when they sing in the talent show together. i was so excited 2 watch it everyday.
April 7, 2006
Hilarious, especially when Bow Wow peed in Cedric's pop. And when the hotel lady took Cedric's shorts and he had to run around naked. And when they met the crazy lady at the restaurant and she prayed over the food. And when they tried to kill the alligator. Very rememorable

With cliche characters, poor acting, stale script, and painfully outdated slapstick gags, this comedy fails to deliver anything original or remotely funny.

I love how funny this comedy is.
