A Weekend with the Family is a comedy movie from 2016 directed by Chris Stokes. Starring Marques Houston, Karrueche Tran, and Wendy Raquel Robinson, the movie follows a young couple who decide to introduce their respective parents to each other over the course of a weekend. Travis (Marques Houston) and Courtney (Karrueche Tran) have been dating for a while and are finally ready to take their relationship to the next level. However, before they can get married, they want to make sure that their parents get along. The problem is, their respective families couldn't be more different.

Travis comes from a conservative middle-class family, while Courtney's parents are wealthy and eccentric. When the two families get together, chaos ensues. Travis's father, played by Clifton Powell, is suspicious of Courtney's family and their money, while Courtney's mother, played by Wendy Raquel Robinson, is judgmental of Travis's family and their lack of sophistication.

As the weekend progresses, tensions rise and secrets are revealed. Travis and Courtney struggle to keep the peace while also dealing with their own relationship issues. Meanwhile, their families clash over everything from religion to parenting techniques.

The movie is filled with comedic moments as the two families try to navigate the cultural differences between them. From Travis's father trying to impress Courtney's mother with his questionable dance moves, to Courtney's father's obsession with his vintage car, there is never a dull moment.

The cast delivers strong performances, with Marques Houston and Karrueche Tran showcasing their chemistry as a couple trying to make things work against all odds. Wendy Raquel Robinson steals the show as the overbearing mother who thinks she always knows best.

A Weekend with the Family also tackles some serious issues, such as classism and parenting, adding depth to the movie beyond its comedic moments.
