Here's a comedy about what happens when the friendliest guy in the Midwest moves his family (the Johnson's) to a neighborhood in Los Angeles where not everyone looks like him -- or appreciates his extreme neighborliness. Cedric the Entertainer starring as Calvin Butler, the Johnson's opinionated next-door neighbor. Calvin, who is wary of the newcomers, and certain that the Johnson's will disrupt the culture on the block. Culture in terms of the blackness that's within the neighborhood.
