"A single father who has just found success as the host of an outrageous television talk show begins to question his path in life when he returns home to attend his parents' 50th wedding anniversary party in the company of his famous fiancée -- a reality television star -- in this crisis-of-conscience comedy starringMartin Lawrence. RJ Stevens (Lawrence) is a television talk-show sensation who has transcended his modest Southern beginnings to become the most popular self-help guru ever to grace the small screen. His show, "Team of Me," is a ratings juggernaut, his fiancée is a beautiful reality television star, and his pockets are always lined with large bills. There are few Tinseltown dreams that RJ hasn't already achieved, so when his parents announce their 50th wedding anniversary, the family-oriented television star immediately drops everything and sets his sights on Georgia. As a boy, RJ was always the target of ridicule within his family, but these days things are different; not only does RJ have a ten-year-old son, but his bride-to-be is admired by countless viewers all across the globe on a weekly basis. But RJ's egotistical West Coast attitude simply doesn't fly in the South, and when his lovable but relentless family refuses to cut him any slack due to his current superstar status, he must finally pause and take stock of the man he has become"

Wouldn't it be cool if you could call up a few friends and watch something like "House Party" again...on a big screen?
That's the plan to screen some new and classic films starring black actors that we might not get to see on the big screen.
So how's it gonna work?
First: This group is open to everyone who is a film lover, so join the group
Second: Everyone in the group can suggest films.
Third: Reserve a place for upcoming events, turn up and enjoy the film!
We'll often have a chance to mingle after the film, so join the fun, tell a few friends and look out for the next screening.
** At the moment we are trialling film related member suggested meetups if you are willing to host. If you just want to let members know about an event, please post the info on the 'Discussions' page **
Peace & Love
P.S. I know I've been 'quiet' and it's just down to me working on a couple of projects so thank you for bearing with me :-)
