We gave it a B-

Meet Dr. R.J. Stevens (Martin Lawrence), a talk-show personality who’s abandoned his Southern roots in favor of a cushy L.A. lifestyle. His self-help advice has transformed (or brainwashed) millions of adoring fans, and his prissy, reality-series star fiancée (Joy Bryant) has him whipped. But after R.J. goes back home to flaunt his new lifestyle, he starts thinking he may be the one in need of self-help.
