‘Johnson Family Vacation’ Coming To Blu-Ray, For The First Time, In March

'Johnson Family Vacation' Coming To Blu-Ray, For The First Time, In March

I’ll bet right now, you’re thinking the same thing I’m

Johnson Family Vacation? Did I see that? I don’t seem to remember.

I know. Just like you, I think I saw it when it came out, but I honestly can’t remember. I mean it, come out literally a decade ago in
April 2004, but you would think that, if it was that great, we still would remember something
from it, or at least, have watched it a few times since it came out.

Well, to get to the point, for those fans of the film out
there, Fox Home Entertainment announced today
that the film, which stars Cedric The Entertainer, Vanessa Williams, Bow Wow (who
is definitely old enough to be going to his real adult name Shad Gregory Moss
by now) and Steve Harvey, will be
coming out, for the first time, on blu-ray on March 4.

Wait a minute…

That was LAST WEEK. but Fox Home Entertainment announced
that in a press release TODAY? Guess they forgot about the film too. 

But the
film is out on blu-ray as part of Fox Home Entertainment’s celebration of
Fox Searchlight’s 20th Anniversary, which will see the release of several never-before-released films on blu-ray, throughout the year, like Notes on a Scandal and The Full Monty. There will also be new anniversary editions of Searchlight
films previously released on blu-ray, such as Sideways, Napoleon Dynamite and
Crazy Heart.

In case you’re wondering (and I had to admit, I had to
look it up), Johnson Family Vacation was directed by Christopher Erskin, a music video director
whose has yet to make another feature film since then, and one assumes went
back in the music video and TV commercial world.

Here’s the trailer to refresh your memory:

This one was a sho-nuff stinker. I had to watch it with my then 7-year-old nephew and I swear, it made me glad I don't have kids, just so I wouldn't have to be subjected to this kind of cinematic fare on a regular basis…

i can't imagine that you, the person who writes this "material", calls yourself a journalist… why are you covering the release of a shitty Griswold family ripoff? Just because it's made by black folks? does it legitimize it? the copy? the shitty factor? this whole shadow and act section of indiewire is something i never really understood, doesn't it just exploys the void much more? nevertheless it's a place that holds dear to the spike lee's, the ones that celebrate the ghettos… not the steve mcqueen's that celebrate our cosmopolitan side… hail to the stupidity… way to go… let's cover the next johnson's family vacation….


Cedric is to movies as what Blair Underwood is to network television.
