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? Can they find Missouri? Written by

This is by far the worst movie I have ever seen. Cedric the Entertainer and Steve Harvey are both very talented people but in this film there is nothing funny about their performances.
Basic Plot is this. Nate Johnson with his wife and 3 children set out on a road trip for a family reunion. As with any road trip movies, something has to happen to make us laugh. Believe me, whatever happens in this film, is not funny at all. It is more of a "what the hell was I thinking renting this film". Anyway, at the end they get to the reunion but by this time I truly didn't care. I would think it'd be funnier if they never made it there... Now, that would get me some laughs. So, we are forced to sit through this so called family gathering only to see two brothers, Nate and Mac, go for the trophy.
Here is a list of my problems with this film:
1) Why drive 3 days to the reunion and 3 days back just to be there for 2 hours??? Nate Johnson drives a Lincoln Navigator ($50,000 SUV by the way) but yet he can't afford to buy plane tickets for 5 people?
2) Several subplots never get developed... such is the example of Shannon Elizabeth's character. Johnsons pick her up on the road and end up getting her a hotel room??? What was the purpose? Nate is with his family, there obviously can't be any hanky-panky, then why even bother with this scene?
3) Why was Uncle Earl not invited to the reunion??? He is an uncle, after all. Other reunion members were never introduced as well.
Overall, the movie seemed to be missing its overall premise. Well, I hope they got someone to buy one of those Lincolns.
