Forgettable comedy about a young basketball player (Storm P) who, after striking it rich as the NBA's No. 1 draft pick, decides to throw a family barbeque at his palatial new home in an exclusive white suburban community, policed by an overzealous security guard (Queen Latifah). Mayhem ensues when the cookout turns into a tug-of-war between his eccentric relatives, who want to make sure that his newfound success doesn't go to his head, and his gold-digger girlfriend (Meagan Good), who's just after his money. While imparting a message that family is more important than fame, much of Lance Rivera's unfunny directorial debut only serves to reinforce many of the African-American stereotypes it purports to discredit. Some crass sexual and racial humor, drug content and recurring crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
