Watch The Cookout
- 1 hr 37 min
A rollicking comedy featuring a soundtrack of original songs and R&B classic covers. Todd Anderson (Quran Pender) is a basketball player who has just signed a multi-million dollar deal. He gets himself a new mansion in a nice neighborhood and moves in along with his girlfriend Brittany (Meagan Good). To celebrate he hosts a family reunion cookout on the same afternoon that he is meeting with business associates in order to sign a huge endorsement deal. Though the cookout is slated to begin long after the morning meeting, things quickly get out of hand as his outrageous friends and family start showing up early. Todd now has to juggle his lucrative meeting while also dealing with old friends eager to see his new digs, family members determined to keep him down to earth, and conservative neighbors who are not at all prepared for an Anderson family invasion. Also featuring Queen Latifah, Ja Rule, Danny Glover, Farrah Fawcett, and Tim Meadows. Directed by Lance Rivera and produced by Latifah, who also had a hand in the script.
