Kingdom Come (2001). 1h 34m | PG

“Well, from the little press I saw regarding this movie when it first came out, Iu0026#39;ll admit I wasnu0026#39;t running to the theater. (I wasnu0026#39;t even running to the video store.) However, when it came on HBO recently, my sister told me to sit down and watch it, to compare it to our family.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis movie was almost scary in how closely it mimicked our gatherings (especially funerals, but all gatherings in general). I really felt like the writers knew us, as they hit several depictions right on the head.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe Slocums are more the typical Black family than most movies will show nowadays–sure there are a few people who lose their way now and again, but family brings them back around. (What family isnu0026#39;t slightly dysfunctional anyway? It just makes family gatherings more amusing. Heck–my family even has the three holy-terror-boys who run around every gathering destroying everything.)u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIu0026#39;m not going to say that the acting was outstanding, or the script completely original because it wasnu0026#39;t. THE SCRIPT WAS REALISTIC, THOUGH. It wasnu0026#39;t original because anyone could have sat through a funeral in their family and copied things word for word. I do recommend this movie. The last minute is a little cheesy, but hey, the rest of the movie works so well that you accept it. There werenu0026#39;t any unnecessary curses, gratuitous violence or sex. It was just a movie about family. What is more real than that?u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis is the ultimate feel-good movie because you feel like it is real. Some movies are just too contrived, but I had to smile to myself at the end of this movie. It shows how the strength of your family helps you cope and heal together.”
