Nate Johnson (Cedric The Entertainer) and his family embark on a cross-country road trip for their annual family reunion in Missouri. Reluctantly along for the ride are Nate's estranged wife Dorothy (Williams); their rapper-wannabe son DJ (Lil Bow Wow); their way-too-sexy teenage daughter Nikki (Solange Knowles); and seven-year-old Destiny (Gabby Soleil), who has an imaginary dog that is always getting lost. Although the journey goes hilariously awry with every bend in the road, each family member comes away with a deeper appreciation and tolerance for their kin.
