It's a good comedy

Forget race, this is gender dominant, the ladies win hands down in this film. The men basically play slapstick sidekicks, the ladies get the best lines. Goldberg is just a sideshow, the other ladies have an excellent display of comic patterns, they're great interacting with each other.

Amazing Film

When the Patriarch Bud keels over at the breakfast table in the middle of one of his saved, sanctified & filled with the Holy Ghost sister Marguerite (Loretta Devine) the family comes together dealing with their own baggage on top of it Jr & Sherese (Anthony Anderson and Jada Pinkett--at the time) deal with going bankrupt after Jr foolishly created a machine that cleans parking lots. He also has 3 kids who are terrors.

Ray Bud & Lucille Slocumb (LL Cool J & Vivica Fox) contend with Lucille being unable to bring a baby to term despite their best efforts, and due to the funeral he says to his wife in one of my favorite lines "When I die don't say anything Just bury me in the backyard and tell everybody I left you" Marguerite and Royce (Darius McCrary) deal with an antagonistic relationship and Royce going down the wrong path and is on the way to a cell next to his brother LeVar All of this self examination of their feelings toward the Dearly Departed (which was the play this film was based on) and each other come into the forefront. Also featuring Cedric The Entertainer as Rev Lee Hoooker and Masasa Moyo who is a Harpo Marx character that as Daddy Bud puts it "in love with the refrigerator" 3 church ladies that act as a Greek Chorus and characters that are true to life. It is a delightful romp through a family as they deal with the day all families will contend with, the death of a patriarch So strap in for the ride and enjoy the music written and produced Kirk Franklin and delightful voices of Tamar Braxton, Tamela Mann and a nice song at the end of the movie as they say their final goodbyes

Family Gathers for Patriarch's Funeral

First let me say that I'm white and even though this movie has an all black cast, it isn't a "black movie". It's a movie about families and one I relate to very well because my family is as dysfunctional as the one portrayed here.

I have seen this movie at least 4 times and I recommend it to anyone longing for a movie the family can watch together. It's extremely well cast with all the characters creating the empathy necessary to draw you in.

Whoopi Goldberg is exceptional as the matriarch suffering the loss of her husband as well as the antics of her extended family. LL Cool J and Vivica Fox, as Ray Bud and Lucille, and Anthony Anderson as Junior, play there parts very well. Jada Pinkett Smith as Charisse, plays her character so well you want to choke her. I have to add one thing, Anthony Anderson is one of my favorites and I've liked him in almost everything I have seen him in. He plays both comedic and dramatic roles equally well.

The funniest scenes in the movie are between Marguerite Slocum, played by Loretta Devine, and her "Demonseed" son Royce, played by Darius McCrary. He is best remembered as Eddie Winslow from the TV show 'Family Matters'.

There are some curse words, (the 'D' word, the 'H' word and one use of the 'S' word) but they are in context to the particular scene in which they are used. The one suggestive scene involves Royce and Bernice Talbert and it's included to show the emptiness Royce's life.

Would I recommend it? Absolutely! I don't remember hearing of this movie when it was released in 2001 but I predict it will continue to build a following and become a classic in the same way 'A Christmas Story' has, since its debut 25 years ago.
