Roscoe Jenkins (Martin Lawrence) is a popular syndicated talk show host, who has overcome his simple Southern background to amass a small fortune in Los Angeles.  He has an attractive girlfriend named Bianca (Joy Bryant), the winner of a Survivor-type reality television show. 

Bianca reveals that her beauty is only skin deep however when she accompanies Roscoe to the Jenkins' family reunion in Georgia, where she snubs his kinfolk and expects him to follow suit.  He does initially, but pressure from his son, Jamal (Damani Roberts) causes Roscoe to reevaluate himself and his domineering relationship with Bianca.

Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins grossed $43 million at theaters worldwide, almost doubling its budget and deeming the film a financial success.
