    Terrible racial stereotype fest. Poor directing, acting and writing. Just awful.

    When will you people stop being idiots. Tyler Perry is not funny, and his movies aren't funny either. This is not a good movie, at all.

    People, just because it was better than the other crap Tyler Perry has put out does not mean it wasn't a terribly done movie. He just has no talent as a filmmaker. I saw this as a favor to a friend who wanted to see it and couldn't convince anyone else to go with her. I had pretty low expectations, and it was even worse than I thought it'd be.

  1. The problems are real; the solutions are ... well, really entertaining. Perry mixes heartfelt drama with bold-stroke, insult-slinging comedy.
  2. As has been previously demonstrated in the hugely successful Perry's stage, television and big-screen works, subtlety and tonal consistency are not his strong suits. Here, the mostly broadly drawn characters and situations on display quickly prove grating, with the film veering awkwardly between broad comedy and melodrama.

    Though fans might miss Perry's genre-exploding daring, the excellent cast injects enough pathos and zing to keep picture percolating.
