Marques Houston continues to expand his acting career with his first movie of 2016, in the slapstick comedy A Weekend With The Family.
Co-starring along with model/actress Karrueche Tran, the two play boyfriend and girlfriend getting ready to take their relationship to the next level and meeting their families for the first time. Read the official movie synopsis below.
A young attorney looks to gain a 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 (Marques Houston) and Courtney (Karrueche Tran) 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.
The film is due in theaters on April 1, check out the comedic trailer below.
