Storyline

This family has issues! When mean and surly Bud Slocumb keels over at breakfast, his family gathers for the wake and funeral: long-suffering widow Raynelle, unemployed son Junior who's cheating on his wife Charisse, son Ray Bud who holds a job and has a loving wife, Lucille, but struggles with alcoholism and with their difficulty having children. There's younger daughter Delightful, who constantly eats; religious Aunt Marguerite and her wayward son Royce; and, there's Juanita, their wealthy cousin's wife. They all descend on the town of Lula, struggle to say something nice about Bud, and face the challenge of sorting out their relationships with the living. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Sweet and hilarious
13 September 2001 | by (Glendale, CA) – See all my reviews

What a joy to watch a film that showed a white guy like me the true black family - much like mine! Just goes to prove that we're all just plain ol' humans. Loved the witty writing and the understated performances of good actors. This movie just kept on growing on me until I just noticed that it got me. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys a hearty laugh and even a couple of tears mixed in between!
