I OWN AND HAVE SEEN ALL OF TYLER'S MOVIES AND PLAY. THIS ONE IS TEH BEST ONE I HAVE SEEN SINCE DIARY OF A MAD BLACK WOMEN. THIS ONE HAS NOW BECOME MY FAVORITE. IT SHOWS STRUGGLES OF AN AVERAGE AFRICAN AMERICAN SINGLE MOM AND HER KIDS JUST TRYING TO DO THE BEST THEY CAN TO SURVIVE. IT SHOWS YOU THAT IN TIME, IF YOU BELEIVE IN GOD, HE WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU AND THINGS IN YOU LIFE WILL TAKE A TURN FOR THE POSITIVE. EXCEELNT JOB TYLER.THIS PARTICULAR VERSION HAS BOTH FULL AND WIDESCREEN SO IT PLEASES EVERYONE. ABSOLUTELY HYSTERICAL.
Tyler Perry's plays and movie always have much needed wisdom and direction at their core. They are never without the themes of forgiveness,hope, and love.
In today's world of foolish concepts surrounding relationships his work is like a breath of fresh air cutting through the BS to the heart of being human and the real needs we all have.
This offering is not his best. It's has wonderful highlights of comedy but misses it with the lead female character. Another female lead would have lifted this movie rather than drag it down, which is why I considered a low rating.
I found Basset to be merely annoying and overdone as the angry woman struggling to survive. A good actress, but not in this. She failed to gain interest or concern for her plight from me.
As a female who is very aware of the hardships many women face I tried my best to not find her so difficult to watch and look for something to make me care about the character. It didn't work. Her scene chewing and grossly overwrought performance took the heart out of a good story with many funny or touching moments.
It's worth a few bucks and time for the rest of the cast and Tyler's other characters and his sterling message. The feel good uplifting of family,redemption and love gets the good rating.
i buy the movie because i did not want to go o the store so i orde it here. i love all Tyler Perry Movies. And i know that angela is going to be real good in is movies and tyler perry have some of his co-stars in here from house of payne and Mr. Brown and Madea is goig to be the funniest out the whole show. That was a good thing she get the letter from the brown becaus she may have been homeless o something.
star studed cast with the story revolving single mother of three angela basset and rick fox as her potential love intrest and mentor to her oldest son. typical plot line but strong acting makes the movie work. david mann as mr. brown shines through to really lead the movie.
