    Was like Jo Koy bombed for 90 minutes
    Here's The 4K Lowedown on "Easter Sunday" (PG-13 - 2022 - Blu) Genre: Comedy/Observational

    My Score: 5.4 Cast=8 Acting=4 Plot=6 Ending=6 Story=3 Humor=6 Chemistry=6 Script=4 Relate=7 Wit=5

    When a stand-up comedian takes his son to visit family for Easter, he realizes just how dysfunctional and important family is.

    "Easter Sunday is like the Filipino super bowl." I really wanted to like this, but it felt like Jo Koy bombed for 90 minutes. The cast was tryng to be characters from his act, but none of them could measure up to his own stand-up routine. Cameos made up for some of the issues, but this movie is not really worth the time.

    Let's get the party started
    Jo Valencia (Jo Koy) is a Filipino-American comedian who does Budweiser commercials and stand-up comedy. His signature line is "Let's get this party started." He is divorced and his son lives with his mother and goes to a private school. Jo does not spend enough time with his son. On Easter Sunday Jo and his son travel to visit his family on Easter Sunday. Jo is a celebrity at home and in the neighborhood.

    Having been around the Karaoke crazy Filipinos I was able to enjoy the humor and how they made fun of themselves. The plot shifts from father-son issues to a cousin that owes money to some bad guys. Lou Diamond Phillips plays himself in a small role.
