Review Funny, inviting, and just a wee bit over the top, Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins is a delightful surprise. It offers up an amazing cast, a consistent level of laughs, and enough homespun heart to get us over the calculated, cartoonish bits. With its combination of seasoned stand-ups, accomplished actors, and languid local color, writer/director Malcolm Lee has crafted a warm and wicked dysfunctional hoedown. Keeping such high profile personalities as Mo'Nique and Cedric in check, while giving ample time to supporting players like Duncan, should earn this filmmaker some level of kudos. But Lee takes it one step further, merging several levels of talent into an enjoyable amalgamation of the nostalgic, the nutty, and the nasty...It's safe to say that Lawrence has never been better, holding down the center of the film with his little-man-lost performance. Even when going toe-to-toe with Jones and Avery, he's excellent. Similarly, the muscled Duncan is as strong as he is sensitive, his local sheriff character never taking kindly to having his kids called fat. As for the rapid fire riffers, our big and beautiful diva Mo matches the debonair and dapper Entertainer one-liner for one-liner. But it's Epps that singlehandedly steals the film. Every time he's on screen, his stream of consciousness comebacks and dead-on pop culture comparisons are guaranteed side splitters.
