Storyline

Bernie Mac is a world famous stand-up comedian living the good life in his Los Angeles home complete with beautiful wife, Wanda, and a hi-tech SUV. Life was sweet for the Mac-Man. Then one day, Bernie's sister, in Chicago, is sent to rehab for drug use and her three children: teenage Vanessa, asthmatic wheezing Jordan and sweet, innocent Bryana, are put into Bernie's custody. Raising kids is hard! Especially these kids. They always give poor Uncle Bernie trouble, making him want to "bust their heads 'til the white meat shows".

Bad Show
3 February 2006 | by creatia52See all my reviews

I cannot stand this show! If it is funny, I fail to see the humor. Mac's character is always mad and in a word a bully. He is always yelling at the kids and threatening to hit them. Now these kids are his drug addicted sister's who is in jail and I guess the reasoning behind his tough love approach is to give them structure. Well it is not funny to me to threaten to beat them with a belt as a way of discipline. With the exception of the teenage girl, the children are obnoxious. The little girl is always screaming and the little boy is always whining. Charming. Another thing, does the little girl have a name? If she does, I haven't heard it as Bernie is forever calling her baby girl -- even when he does his talk to America spiel in the camera. I like the wife, who is , guess, there to put the brakes on Bernie. But other than that -- two hands down.
