Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins is the comedy movie where Martin Lawrence plays talk-show host Dr. RJ Stevens, who returns with his fiance Bianca Kittles (Joy Bryant) to his simple Southern family, including cousin Reggie Jenkins (Mike Epps), his father "Papa" Jenkins (James Earl Jones), his sister Betty (Mo'Nique), and his childhood crush Lucinda (Nicole Ari Parker). RJ is a successful TV sensation, with millions of fans and a beautiful Survivor-winning fiance Bianca, who feels on top of the world and has forgotten his Southern past.

His crazy but lovable family is a constant source of laughs, still picking on Roscoe Jr. and clashing with his big-city attitude, trying to remind him where he came from and show him what he has become. Watch as Roscoe Jenkins takes one crazy trip home and realizes the importance of family in the fun-filled comedy Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins.moreless
