    Make sure you don’t spend one minute of your weekend with this family!

    When you fall in love and you’re considering marriage, meeting your
    significant other’s family can be a very stressful experience. You want
    to make a good first impression and you want this family that you plan
    to join to accept you. Your future happiness may depend on it. Yeah,
    that’s some pressure right there – even under the best of
    circumstances. Now imagine having that first meeting with no warning,
    an immediate misunderstanding with your mate’s parents, a clash of
    cultures and then your family showing up unexpectedly to witness – and
    complicate the whole thing. Sound like fun? Not for the characters in
    ”A Weekend with the Family” (NR, 1:21) and, unfortunately, not for the
    audience either.

    Travis Stanley (Marques Houston, who also co-wrote the film) is a hot
    young lawyer who is planning to propose to his dental hygienist
    girlfriend, Courtney Clancy (Karrueche Tran). She learns this when she
    discovers the ring in the house they share. She’s excited about the
    impending proposal, but she’s very concerned that neither one of them
    has met the other’s family. Courtney decides to surprise Travis with a
    weekend getaway, but doesn’t reveal that she’s taking him to meet her
    parents at their vacation home. She also secretly calls his parents and
    invites them for the weekend. Two birds, one stone.

    Travis is in for a weekend of surprises – and he’s not the only one.
    When Courtney drives up to her parents’ house and tells Travis where
    they are, he goes into a minor panic, but gathers himself and tries to
    make the best of the situation. When he meets her father (Dorien
    Wilson), who is a judge, a secret comes out that reveals why Travis had
    been avoiding meeting Courtney’s parents – and casts doubt on his
    intentions. But the Clancys push forward with the purpose for their
    weekend gathering – celebrating the Korean New Year, a holiday that’s
    very important to Courtney’s Korean mother (Suzanne Whang).

    The family (including Travis) dresses and otherwise prepares for a very
    traditional Korean holiday meal, but then the doorbell rings and Travis
    is surprised to see his own family on the Clancy’s doorstep. As
    everyone sits down to eat, Courtney’s father and Travis’ father begin
    to argue. The liberal, loud and uninhibited behavior of Travis’ father
    (Clifton Powell) and mother (Wendy Raquel Robinson) doesn’t sit well
    with the conservative, upper middle class judge. Courtney’s mother
    tries to keep the peace, but the rest of the weekend involves tension
    and insults between the two families, putting a lot of stress on the
    relationship between Travis and Courtney. Meanwhile, there’s a subplot
    of a budding romance between Travis’ brother (Black Thomas) and
    Courtney’s sister (Chantel Jeffries) and another subplot involving the
    judge running for state senate, a candidacy that is jeopardized by the
    ongoing inter-family fighting.

    This movie feels like a low-rent retread of Ben Stiller’s ”Meet the
    Parents” (2000). Both films include a boyfriend meeting his prospective
    fiancé’s family while spending a couple days at their house, plus
    dealing with her intimidating and suspicious father. Both films also
    include such details as the ruining of an irreplaceable family
    heirloom, a sporting event during which one family member gets hurt,
    someone being arrested and someone lying about his real name. Take all
    that and throw in the embarrassment that Stiller’s character suffers
    when his fiancé meets HIS parents in the 2004 sequel ”Meet the Fockers”
    and you’ll see that there’s not much in this film that’s original… or
    funny… or otherwise entertaining.

    ”A Weekend with the Family” sadly squanders a premise with real
    potential. What could have been a fun and original Korean-American /
    African-American version of those two Ben Stiller movies instead
    settles for recycled plot points and random outrageous behavior
    masquerading as comedy. This plot is cheaper and has more holes in it
    than a box of generic macaroni and cheese. It’s hard to imagine real
    people in situations like these acting the way these characters do.
    Exaggerated behaviors can be very funny, but not with these actors
    performing this script. I will say that Travis and Courtney, when they
    have the screen to themselves, make for a charming couple and several
    isolated dramatic moments actually work pretty well, but all that is
    more than overshadowed by many ridiculous situations, a lot of
    overacting, dumb dialog, embarrassing attempts at humor and rampant
    racially-insensitive gags. When choosing a movie for your day off, do
    everything you can NOT to spend a minute of your weekend with this
    family. ”D”

    Horrible. What a waste of time.

    I’ll keep this short. Coming from a half Korean family, I was excited
    to watch a movie that might show something similar to my experience. I
    was extremely disappointed. I can’t speak for the black side of the
    family, but as a Korean I find this pretty racist. The Korean mother is
    a complete Asian stereotype. In my opinion, apart from the hanbok they
    wear, there was nothing about the family that was accurately Korean.
    From the chopsticks in the daughter’s hair, to the weird bowing thing
    they did before dinner, together this movie is a complete train wreck.
    We Asians aren’t a joke, and African American people aren’t either.

    I love this movie.

    To be honest, a lot of people on here talk bad about this movie but I
    love this movie. But we all have our opinions. I rated this movie a
    10/10 because it is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen also it’s my
    opinion about the movie. I think if you are scamming the comments to
    get an idea if you want to watch the movie. Try it out. It is a pretty
    good movie. It made me laugh a lot.
