It’s a roadside emergency waiting to happen when Nate Johnson (Cedric the Entertainer) sets out with his family on a cross-country trek from California to Missouri for the Johnson family’s annual reunion/grudge match. Reluctantly along for the ride are Nate’s estranged wife (Vanessa Williams); their rapper-wannabe son (Bow Wow); their Lolita-like teenage daughter (Solange Knowles); their imaginary-dog-toting youngest daugher (Gabby Soleil); and a sexy hitchhiker with a devilish side (Shannon Elizabeth).
The Johnson encounter one mishap after another, including a run-in with the police, an 18-wheeler out for revenge and voodoo spells. But even though they start the vacation at each other’s throats, they rediscover one another’s hearts. Johnson Family Vacation, a high-spirited ode to the delights and disasters that come with loving a family, opens wide on April 7.
