As bad and unfunny as the material is, it's matched neck-and-neck by bad and unfunny performances from Vanessa Williams, Bow Wow, Solange Knowles, Shannon Elizabeth, and the generally reliable Steve Harvey.

More disappointing than outright disappointment, it has the feeling of being just one rewrite, one take, one more second of comedic timing off.
April 11, 2004
As arduous to watch as your neighbor's poorly focused vacation slides.
April 11, 2004
...a punishing and weary family farce...the monotonous moments are as lost and aimless as a harried nomad with amnesia...the slapstick energy is undeniably mawkish
April 9, 2004
continually plays it safe and goofy, and doesn't allow anyone to let loose

Single-handedly saving a movie may be a tall order for a short-legged clown, but Cedric the Entertainer is the best (and probably only) reason to take this Vacation.

This family vacation runs out of gas long before its destination.

Goal: family reunion in Missouri. Itinerary: bad gags.

A tedious outing.

If laughs are the currency of any comedy, then this one pays minimum wage.
April 9, 2004
Writers Todd R. Jones and Earl Richey Jones come up with only predictable road-trip comedy involving speeding, littering, a leaky cement mixer, an empty gas tank and bad fast-food.
April 9, 2004
Johnson Family Vacation is warmed-over sitcom fare, different only in that it's a black family rather than a white family going through the mill.
April 9, 2004
A lonely highway of tedium and tired jokes.
April 8, 2004
It was probably a sign that I was in for a rough time when I first checked my watch and discovered the movie had only been running for eleven minutes.
April 8, 2004
Solange's costumes are fashionably skimpy and her cell phone seems attached to her face.
April 8, 2004
Appallingly unfunny...About as stimulating as an actual 300-mile drive across the desert wastelands of Arizona and New Mexico.
April 8, 2004
Tired and glib, it tries to milk humor from the sniping, sass and simple disrespect of its unpleasant traveling companions.
