1.0 out of 5 stars Dumb. July 17 2004
By Gina
Format:DVD
With Solange Knowles and Bow Wow, I had expected something more than a weak and failing attempt at a feel-good family comedy. The movie was just far-fetched and dumb, enough said. There are only three scenes that were worth watching; the cup in the car episode (my little brother did that once...sick), and the Bun World was funny too...actually that's just two but oh, well.
And now the bad points, ah, where to begin. Okay, first of all, the dialogue, plot, and irony of the movie made it corny overall. Since when do people pick up teenage hitchhikers, and since when do people not suspect anything when that hitchhiker panics when trying to have her picture taken, and since when do the people have the hitchhiker spend the night in the same hotel room, and since when do those hitchhikers have hidden baby alligators names Twinkie? And also since when do they throw a whole family, kindergartener and all, in a barred jail cell? And since when do family reunions consist of a talent show? It was this kind of kiddie (well not even, in this case) ironic stuff that made me give this movie one star. Sorry(...), but I had expected more.

2.0 out of 5 stars Decent But Not Too Funny! June 11 2004
Format:DVD
This film seemed like a waste of Cedric the Entertainer's talent. Seems like he was holding back and granted this was a family movie, there could've been more geniunely funny moments in this film besides the simple slapstick which seemed more annoying than funny. As I was sitting in the movie theater I actually tried to force myself to actually like this film. Cedric doubles as his uncle in the film which I thought was just sloppy. There was a clear effort to make sure that both the characters he was playing weren't in the same shot together. I saw better "doubling" in a Van Damme movie (i.e. Double Impact). Vanessa Williams role seemed very subdued, another waste of talent in the film but she really wasn't given much to work with here and neither was Steve Harvey. The sad thing about it is, is that I really like these actors and they are capable of so much more than was presented in this movie. It must've been for the paycheck. How else can one explain their signing onto this bad movie. Okay I will say that the movie is somewhat enjoyable but I was really looking forward to seeing a movie that would basically outdue National Lampoon's Vacation. I was sorely disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Take a Vacation..... Oct. 22 2004
By V. Marshall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Meet the new generation's vacationing family as they travel from California to Missouri and encounter all sorts of silly experiences along the way.

Nate Johnson (played by Cedric the Entertainer) begins his family vacation by picking up his SUV from the dealer and finding out he now has a "hip-hop mobile" complete with hydraulics and rapper wheels. His son, (Lil' Bow Wow), now of course thinks of his dad as cool. Estranged from his wife (Vanessa Williams), Nate has convinced her to take a ride to his family reunion along with his teenage boy-crazy daughter (Solange Knowles) and his youngest child (Gabby Soleil). All kinds of funny things happen along the road and family issues begin to come to a head. The reunion is hilarious with Nate and his brother (Steve Harvey) competing for their mother's attention....let the competitions begin!

Cedric the Entertainer is very funny in his role as the nerdy insurance selling dad; he is a gifted performer and has the chance to show off all his stuff in this role. Vanessa Williams is still beautiful and amazingly good as the serious Johnson mom. Lil Bow Wow shows he is not all hip-hop in his role as the Johnson son. Solange Knowles is perfectly cast as the teenage Johnson daughter with an eye for the boys. And how sweet is little Gabby Soleil as the youngest Johnson. Of course Steve Harvey cannot be denied as the competitive Johnson brother. The best part of this movie is the talent contest at the reunion where we get to see Cedric in all his glory and Harvey doing a "Miss Jackson" routine! This movie is light-hearted and entertaining for the whole family with a heartwarming ending of course so sit back and let the Johnson's do the driving.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4-1/2 stars -- Hilarious! April 12 2004
By Anthony Rupert - Published on Amazon.com
When I first heard about this movie, I wasn't sure I wanted to see it because it featured a lot of teenage hip-hop artists of the moment (like Bow Wow and Solange Knowles), so I thought it would be teen-oriented (not that there's anything wrong with that). But it actually isn't. And on top of all that, this movie is pretty funny.
Cedric the Entertainer plays Nate Johnson, a man who is trying to drive his son D.J. (Bow Wow), daughters Nikki (Solange Knowles) and Destiny (Gabby Soleil), and (separated) wife Dorothy (Vanessa L. Williams) to the annual Johnson Family Reunion in California. But they somehow end up driving all across unnecessary states (they go from New Mexico to Colorado to Kansas to Missouri) while encountering strange situations -- the strangest of which would have to be hitchhiker Chrishelle (Shannon Elizabeth).
The funniest part of the movie to me would have to be when Nate expresses his dismay of D.J.'s CDs, and what Nate in turn does with them. But overall, the movie is great. The only thing I really didn't understand was why Jennifer Freeman had such high billing (she was listed fourth, I think), because she was only in one or two quick scenes, and she didn't even have any speaking parts. But regardless, Johnson Family Vacation is worth checking out at the theater.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really liked this comedy. June 29 2011
By okdude - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
4 & 1/2

I'm not sure what's up with all the angry reviews, but they don't reflect the movie content. The movie is funny, and very at times. I don't laugh at much entertainment out there these days, but even the most subtle of Cedric's remarks are so well delivered. The family cast altogether I think is quite good.

Also, this is not copying Chevy Chase's older Vacation movies. I have watched those so many times in the past, probably more than 20X, but this is quite a bit different actually.

5.0 out of 5 stars Johnson Family Vacation Jan. 1 2010
By TREND700 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
AAA can't help the roadside emergency that is the JOHNSON FAMILY VACATION. Even the on-board navigation system has a meltdown on Nate Johnson and his family's cross-country trek to their annual family reunion/grudge match. Reluctantly along for the ride are Nate's wife, who's only in it for the kids; their rapper-wannabe son; their teenage daughter who's fashioned herself as the next Lolita; and their youngest, whose imaginary dog Nate just can't seem to keep track of. Can the Johnsons survive each other and all the obstacles the road throws at them to make it to Caruthersville, Missouri. I loved this movie...Maybe because I am a huge fan Edric and Steve Harvey. But I actually thought that this movie was very well done. It's not the normal for Edric or Steve but sometimes you have to go a different direction and I think that they picked the right direction. It's a nice movie that you can take your kids, I would recommend this movie to anyone.
