...a well-intentioned yet wholly misguided piece of work that effectively wastes its talented cast...

There's nothing original about this film, but it does boast a solid anchor in Goldberg and include some pretty good acting around her.

The script, like the direction by Doug McHenry, relies too heavily for comic effect on broad comic contrivances and high-volume arguments.

It takes this stock situation and gives it moments of discovery, as well as an emotional showiness that's sometimes hard to resist.

With its universal themes, Kingdom Come offers a great deal to enjoy, from its stellar cast to its entertaining screenplay

Something is amiss when gentleness is the most memorable element of the film that desperately wants to be a rollicking gutbuster.

Film Journal International

As performed by a wonderful all-star cast, this hybrid low comedy and heart-tugging soap opera proves richly entertaining.

A heavyset daughter who never talks but eats a lot is named Delightful, which is supposed to be funny. That pretty much sums up the movie's comic tone.

While Kingdom Come follows the formula for comic combustibility, it's even more inert than Bud, who at least comes to life for a brief fantasy sequence.

It is difficult to find anything interesting about the onscreen bickering and distress concerning repeatedly harped-upon issues.

The script and plot become far too predictable -- to the point that the audience knows exactly where it's going to go and reluctantly follows it.

The all-star ensemble of Kingdom Come overcome most of the bumps in their path.

Awful because it's full of archaic stereotypes, glaringly bad performances and enough Parent 'Hood-ish sitcom yuks to give Spike Lee an arm-length list of reasons to make Bamboozled 2 in response.

The structure and style are a staple of many traveling black stage shows ... What slays them in the second balcony, though, flattens on the screen.

The comedy sequences are routinely played for the very broadest sort of slapstick, which makes its abrupt attempts to switch gears back into genuine dramatic emotion-mode all the more impossible to sustain.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

LL Cool J and his co-stars, Devine and Goldberg, fare better than their castmates, all of whom deserve stronger material than screenwriters David Dean Bottrell and Jessie Jones's predictable, forgiveness-themed script provides.

You get the sense that many of the characters and much of the raucous familial wrangling would have worked better in a theatrical setting.
