Kingdom Come has passably funny moments, but they don't connect; it might work on video for viewers who glance up at the screen from time to time. The more attention you pay to it, the less it's there.

There's nothing new in this mix of family crises, marital infidelities and long-held grudges, and little satisfaction in the easy personal triumphs.

April 11, 2001
A lukewarm African-American sitcom that forsakes the laugh track in favor of an R&B soundtrack.
April 12, 2001
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.

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.
April 13, 2001
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.

If you're looking for a story that doesn't manipulate you every step of the way, you'll have to wait until you know what.
April 8, 2010
...a well-intentioned yet wholly misguided piece of work that effectively wastes its talented cast...

Kingdom Come has its moments, but clearly isn't as good or funny as it could have been.

April 5, 2001
It feels so much like a typical television sitcom that it's a wonder that it doesn't have a laugh track.

April 5, 2001
Most of it never rises above the realm of mediocre TV.
April 10, 2001
Innocuous and sporadically diverting, but also formulaic and undistinguished.

April 10, 2001
While Fox Searchlight was obviously hoping for another tasty serving of Soul Food, this ensemble-driven message dramedy is considerably less digest-ible with its oversized portions of heavy-handed sentiment and cartoony characterizations.
April 10, 2001
There are long stretches of dialogue and not a lot of action.
April 10, 2001
A grab-bag of loosely connected scenes and lives than a film with a firm sense of direction.
April 10, 2001
Demands high tolerance for low comedy.
April 10, 2001
The broad execution of the material keeps it from being all good, but a genuine heart and occasional successes keep it from being all bad.
