Comedy: A large group of male and female friends assemble in Vegas for a wedding and get into all sorts of misadventures the night before the nuptials.
Six male friends and six female friends -- some of whom are married, others who are involved in relationships -- assemble in Las Vegas to attend the wedding of Michael (TERRENCE JENKINS) and Candace (REGINA HALL). Michael, though, has accidentally named the motor-mouthed, hyper-intense Cedric (KEVIN HART) as his best man, and Cedric goes overboard in trying to plan the greatest bachelor party ever. He even books a $40,000-a-night hotel suite, thinking it's $4,000 a night, that comes with a butler named Declan (JIM PIDDOCK). Meanwhile, Michael's overbearing mother, Loretta (JENIFER LEWIS) causes friction by trying to control everything from the female side, and she still doesn't approve of single-mother Candace as a worthy daughter-in-law.

Throughout the night, the various couples work through long-simmering issues. Blue-collar cook Dominic (MICHAEL EALY) is offered a chef position in Vegas that could launch his culinary career. But he considers turning it down because his lover, business executive Lauren (TARAJI P. HENSON), would never want to leave her company in Los Angeles ... until he learns she has secretly accepted a new executive position in New York City. Zeke (ROMANY MALCO), meanwhile, can't seem to live down his long-standing reputation as ladies man "Zeke the Freak," as he tries to convince Mya (MEAGAN GOOD) that he is ready for a committed relationship.

Jeremy (JERRY FERRARA) is sufficiently freaked out that his wife, Kristen (GABRIELLE UNION), has him on a "sex schedule" in an effort to become pregnant. Jeremy isn't even sure he is ready to be a father. For their part, Bennett (GARY OWEN) and Tish (WENDI McLENDON-COVEY) have been married 15 years and have kids. Their idea of fun in Vegas -- playing slot machines, going to see the "Jersey Boys" stage musical, etc. -- clashes with the more wild ideas of the group. Matters become even more complicated when Michael's two fraternity brothers, Isaac (ADAM BRODY) and Terrell (DAVID WALTON), show up to party and when Candace's smooth Uncle Eddie (DENNIS HAYSBERT) arrives to distract Loretta.

Older teens may have interest due to the rising popularity of Kevin Hart and the PG-13 rating.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
