Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins Story

Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins is about Martin Lawrence who stars as talk-show sensation Dr. RJ Stevens, who has shirked his simple Southern past and the awkward boy he used to be to dispense “you can do it” advice to millions of adoring fans. With a reality-series survivor winner star (Joy Bryant) on his arm and loads of cash in his pocket, there’s nothing he feels he hasn’t achieved.

When his parents request that he come home for their 50th wedding anniversary, RJ packs up his 10-year-old son and his fiancée and heads back to his sleepy Southern hometown. Ready to impress his down home kin with how much he’s changed, RJ will prove he’s not the walking disaster they used to pick on. At least, that’s the plan…

But as his crazy, lovable family reminds RJ of the kid he once was and the egotistical adult he has become, this superstar will take a hard look at the life he is living. Roscoe Junior might’ve felt teased, second-best and laughed at as a child, but the love from home could be turning Dr. RJ into The Better Man.

As RJ Stevens stayed with his family, he realized why he left and also why he grew so far apart from them. But after a while, he also realized the mistakes he made of letting other people get the better of him, meaning he let others bring his spirits down as a child because he, as well as others, were competitive and RJ hated losing.

Now that RJ realizes what his family means to him, he feels he should not have left them in the first place, because he sees that money and being famous do not lead to happiness.
