Kingdom Come

This dutiful comedy-drama, which tracks the coming together of an extended family for a funeral, is satisfying in small ways. In several poignant moments one of the sons of the departed struggles with guilt about his underwhelming grief; he's also at the center of occasional bits of understated humor, though most of the movie's jokes are broad. But weakening it all is a finale that plays out as if the filmmakers, unable to decide between two endings, simply used both of them. Doug McHenry directed; David Dean Bottrell and Jessie Jones adapted their own play. With LL Cool J, Jada Pinkett Smith, Anthony Anderson, Whoopi Goldberg, Vivica A. Fox, Loretta Devine, Toni Braxton, Darius McCrary, and Cedric the Entertainer. 95 min.
