Product Description

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

LL, Jada, Fox and Goldberg are good, not great, but good in this family reunion 'Dramedy' (Drama+Comedy), when a family member dies, the whole family reunite, each with a story to unfold and unfinished business to be taken care of. This movie is ok in my book, had no bad parts and the cast is great, so if you like poignient dramas, it don't get any better than Kingdom Come.

This movie sucks and thats all I can say. What a waste of some precious hours of my life that I can't get back.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kingdom Come... Heaven help us! April 2 2004
Format:DVD
What a phsycologically derranged and wild family! I wouldn't be caught dead if this were my family! The hate and tense scenes were out of state and out of mind. I hated Aunt Marguerite the worst! "Yes, you're living proof that life is not a good time!" *Grabs her bible and beats her with it* "That is not how you use the word of God! Not to hit your son, Royce with it! And if you're such a religious and scriptural expert, what did Jesus say about being judgemental?! You're being the overbearing and obnoxious devil yourself, Marguerite!! Whoo! And if Royce doesn't want to take you, HE DOESN'T HAVE TO TAKE YTOU!!!!!!!! LEAVE HIM ALONE. *grabs phone from Marguerite* The arguements with Charisse and Junior were enough to influence anyone to lose their minds if they had bitter feelings or quarrels. Poor Charisse; if she wnated to be alone, why not Delightful leave her be!? What I liked about this film was Ray Bud and Lucille. It seemed they were the only characters making the movie worth while. Along with Reverend Hooker; his flatulence was out of this world! I really liked the song Charisse sang at the funeral; it's a peace filling tune. The ending was wonderful, though; evertyhing was resolved. That's what kept me from limiting this film to two stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent movie but not worth the money Jan. 2 2004
Format:DVD
I have to start off by saying who ever cast this movie did an excellent job. Who ever wrote the script did a very poor job. The story line was no where as great as the casting was. The story line was very corny,repetitive, and many times boring. I was so glad when the movie was over. I think the movie could have been a whole lot better but it wasn't just awful. In case you are thinking about buying this movie, DON'T.

2.0 out of 5 stars The comedy does not mix with the drama Oct. 12 2003
Format:DVD
In "The Wood" "Get On The Bus" and "Soul Food" the filmmakers was able to balance the comedy with the drama but in "Kingdom Come" nuthin works...
One second there is a dramatic reminiscing about the death of an unborn child and in the next Jada Pinkett starts screaming and tries to be funny (which she definitly is not)...
I like Jada Pinket in "Set It Off" and in "Jason's Lyric" but u find yourself wanting to strangle her character in this movie...
Not even LL COOL J, Vivica A Fox or Whoopie Goldberg can save this movie from being a disaster...
When making this movie they should have chosen either to make a comedy or a drama.
The movie is kind of like a 90 minute commercial for the church mixed with Drama and strangled comedy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can I Get A Yeamen ? Aug. 25 2003
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Movie to Watch June 15 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is shown pretty often on cable. But it's a movie that doesn't get too tiring to see. LL's character is trying to keep the family together as the head of the household has died. Dealing with his own personal demons, he wants his father to be remembered. The mother, played by Whoopi Goldberg, has managed to remain calm throughout the whole entire movie. The overweight sister, never has anything to say. She is rather eating and admiring a man from afar. The younger brother has an affair outside of the marriage which has his wife, played by Jada Pinkett Smith in an uproar, causing her to break down and cry. Loretta Devine's performance as the spiritual aunt stole the movie. She did a good job playing a bible-toting woman who kept her head up high through the bad times and good. This is an enjoyable movie to watch and strongly recommended.
