Product Description

When her husband keels over from a stroke, Raynelle Slocumb (Whoopi Goldberg) calls the entire clan together to remember their dearly departed. Family tensions reach a comedic boil as the wildly dysfunctional Slocumbs reunite under one roof, including Ray

Amazon.com

Whoopi Goldberg and LL Cool J lead a strong cast in Kingdom Come, one of those the-whole-family-comes-together comedy-dramas that celebrate the transcendent power of love. When the surly patriarch of the family dies, relatives descend upon his widow (Goldberg): his recovering alcoholic son Ray (Cool J) and his wife Lucille (Vivica Fox from Independence Day), who have been unsuccessfully trying to get pregnant; the incompetent other son Junior (Anthony Anderson, Big Momma's House) and his jealous wife Charisse (Jada Pinkett Smith) and their three rambunctious boys; the over-religious sister (Loretta Devine) and her shiftless son; and assorted other eccentric characters who generally turn the reception and funeral into a series of squabbling indignities--the kids even wrap the hearse in toilet paper. The movie's script is modest at best and loaded with forced plot points--to no one's surprise, all problems are resolved in an orgy of forgiveness--but the cast handles the material with sincerity and grace. Goldberg rises to the top as the stoic Mama Rae, lacing her bland lines with a dry and biting wit. Cedric the Entertainer (The Original Kings of Comedy) and singer Toni Braxton round out the cast. --Bret Fetzer

Whoopie Goldberg, LL Cool J, Loretta Devine and Jada Pinkett - Smith star in this overlooked little comic gem of a movie. The supporting cast, including Cedric the Entertainer, are also on hand to bring to life a funny farce on death and dying, dysfunction and survival. Admittedly, perhaps a few of the plot devices may be trite, but it's very rare for a movie not to have a few over used plots or farcial moments. This movie is all about family surviving family and life and trying to rise above whatever life has in store - be it fate or human blunder. Goldberg plays Mama Rae, a stoic and strong woman, who does know her own mind. When her husband drops dead at the breakfast table, she continues on - with an assortment of family members and friends who are coming home to " help " her. The always amazing Loretta Devine, the bombastic, morally and religiously effusive, bounds onto the screen and doesn't stop chewing the scenery throughout her turn as Aunt Marguerite - the long suffering sister of the recently departed Bud and the mother of two lowdown sons, who try her patience at every turn. LL Cool J is the eldest son of Mama Rae and Bud, who battles his own demons, but seems to bring stability to a very fractured family. Pinkett - Smith is the one person that every family seems to have - The Drama Queen and the Eternal Victim. The rest of the cast deserves to be singled out, but time and space is limited. The bottomline is - this is a movie that can make you laugh - even if you stop laughing and think - " this reminds me of someone in MY family. " It ain't brain surgery, folks and not all movies have to be or even should be. A nice clue, watch the credit roll - the photos seem to tie up the stories in the movie.

When this movie was released in theaters, it received bad reviews and I wondered out loud: "What movie was the critics watching????" This movie is awesome! I was completely drawn into the story because I could relate on a very personal level to all the things that happened in the movie, from beginning to end. The music was wonderful, too. I couldn't find anything to dislike about "Kingdom Come." It was the southern version of "Soul Food" only better. If you buy this DVD, you won't go wrong!

This has to be one of my very favorite comedies. Done brilliantly! The mourning of a loved one is the most difficult time for everyone one time or another. Family is who you count on during that process, unless your this family.
This movie is so touching, warm, honest, and tells you not to mourn your loved one but to celebrate the life they lived, even if they were "MEAN & SURLY"
Your instantly are drawn to all the members of this family. They warm your heart, you feel what they're feeling, and you watch with a smile & and are laughing endlessly. When the credits go up, you feel good.
Whatever your religious beliefs may or not be, if your white or someone of color, you will find a spirit to this movie, it really will make you feel good. You might even feel differently about that certain family member.
You will remember the cast of this movie, because it will leave you feeling better.
Get this movie, you won't be sending it back😀

I really wasn't expect much from this film. I expected it to be your typical cookie cutter fare. I ended up being pleasantly surprised. The cast was likable, the storyline was interesting, and the film's comedy was VERY funny and VERY down to Earth.
In a way, the family in the film reminded me of my family. I'm sure it will remind you of your folks, too. I don't care if you're white, black, or whatever. This movie has UNIVERSAL APPEAL. I recommend it to EVERYONE who loves to laugh! Buy or rent this film today!

I'm majoring in child and family development and stumbled across this movie at 2 in the morning. I had never heard of the movie, but laughed myself silly. I could write an 8 page paper over the dysfunctions and strengths of this family! This cast consists of many well known individuals. My favorite part had to have been when the Rev. coped with the after effects of his dinner from the previous evening while performing the funeral. Much of the this movie reminded me of Nutty Professor with so much chaos in that family. For our family, this is one that we'll purchase on DVD and watch time and time again!

I liked Kingdom Come. Especially, when it had my favorite singer, Toni Braxton in it. She did a very good job for her first movie. I thought the movie was heartwarming. A family type movie. It was full of life. A down to earth movie. Just like real life situations. The movie really meant something to me. Sometimes it has to take someone to die to bring the family together. I highly reccommend this movie to all ages. Full of laughs. Cedric the Entertainer will have you cracking up all through the movie. He's so hilarious. This is a gotta see movie.
