Karrueche Tran stars opposite Marques Houston in the hilarious film A Weekend With The Family. See the teaser inside to see how she does!
The star has landed a role in the upcoming film A Weekend With The Family, and we have the first look. Tran, who plays a doctor named Courtney, is convinced that her longtime boyfriend Travis (Marques Houston) is getting ready to pop the question. When her colleague asks her how she’s so sure, she reveals she came across a diamond ring.
But Travis seems to be also focused on his career. And Courtney throws another monkey wrench into the scenario.
“Travis hasn’t met my family.”
So she sets out to change that.
But when they meet, they all find out that Travis recently applied for a job at her father’s firm. This sparks concern from her dad (Dorien Wilson) that Travis is using Courtney for his own “gain.”
Still, that’s just the beginning of the drama after Courtney confesses she also invited Travis’ family. It’s safe to say things don’t get off to a smooth start between the new clans as Travis’ father reveals his embarrassing nickname.
“Why did you invite my family here? What were you thinking?” he asks Courtney.
But it seems in the end they all come together as Travis’ mom (Wendy Raquel Robinson) offers Courtney’s mom (Suzanne Whang) a little advice. But it doesn’t go over so well with Courtney’s dad (Clifton Powell) when she goes a little too far.
The film hits theaters April 1.
A synopsis for the film reads:
"A young attorney looks to gain position at a prestigious law firm while secretly dating his boss’ daughter, who he’s hoping to marry; but when his loving girlfriend decides to arrange a surprise family weekend get-together, his plans blow up in his face, especially with the arrival of his ghetto-fied family, the Stankershets. Travis and Courtney portray love interests who struggle to hold on to their relationship all while their two families wage war in an explosion of hilarity. It’s the far east against the deep south; strict, traditional, Korean customs versus a backwards, country way of life. In the end, Travis must find a way to make the two families peacefully co-exist long enough for him to propose to the woman he loves.”
