Synopsis: Martin Lawrence stars as talk-show sensation Dr. RJ Stevens, who has shirked his simple
Southern past and the awkward boy he used to be to dispense "you can do it" advice to
millions of adoring fans. With a reality-series star on his arm and loads of cash in his
pocket, there's nothing he feels he hasn't achieved. Joining Lawrence and Jones in the film are Margaret Avery as RJ’s mother, Mama Jenkins; Joy Bryant as RJ’s fiancée, Bianca; Louis C.K. as his producer, Marty; Michael Clarke Duncan as his big brother, Otis; Mike Epps as his sly cousin, Reggie; Mo’Nique as his smart-mouth sister, Betty; Nicole Ari Parker as his childhood crush, Lucinda; and Cedric the Entertainer as RJ’s childhood rival, Clyde.

When his parents request that he come home for their 50th wedding anniversary, RJ packs up his 10-year-old son and spoiled princess of a fiancée and heads back to his sleepy, Southern hometown. Ready to impress his down home kin with how much he's changed, RJ will prove he's not the walking disaster they used to pick on. At least, that's the plan...

But as his crazy, lovable family reminds RJ of the kid he once was and the big-ego'd adult he has become, this superstar will take a hard look at the life he is living. Roscoe Junior might've felt teased, second best and laughed at as a child, but the love from home could be turning Dr. RJ into a better man.
