Surprisingly Good

This movie was entertaining, had good dialogue, good acting, and the plot was fairly tightly woven. I'm ashamed to say, I was surprised. Perry scaled back his usual melodramatic hysteria in favor for a more subtle approach. This movie was also far less preachy than his previous efforts. I think Mr. Perry is actually starting to listen to his detractors. He turned a few stereotypes on their head, and fleshed out his characters better here. It's nice to see he's trying to grow because I had my doubts after his last few efforts. Overall, two thumbs up. This is a solid mainstream movie that can hang with the rest of the formulaic romantic comedy-dramas that come out.

Tyler Perry has yet to disappoint me, but this film goes right up there to one of my favorites of his movies. I definitely recommend seeing it AND purchasing it when its released on DVD. We enjoyed it from beginning to end.

Being a complete Tyler Perry fan...this was just another fantastic piece of work from Mr. Perry. Unlike his past movies, this one was a tear-jerk-er. It was a very serious message that would make anyone rethink their lives. It shows you what can happen when you live your life for someone other than yourself. Do what makes YOU happy, and good things will come to you. There are a couple of scenes that would not be appropriate for young kids, it does have a PG-13 rating for a reason. Tyler always excels in his acting, writing and directing. There were a couple very obvious "mistakes" that caught our eye. Nothing that effects the quality of the movie, but always fun to catch. (example: car has a license plate on the front, then it does not, then it does again.) This is a must see, not only for Tyler Perry fans, but movie goers in general.

I couldn't imagine Tyler Perry as a romantic lead - but he did such a tremendous job acting that you embraced his character. The story line was excellent and tears even flowed watching this movie. One of his best movies -- always a message -- this message resonated for all couples dealing with complexities of interpersonal relationships - siblings, parents and girlfriends. A good movie to take a loved one - even a teenager- lots of discussion groups should take on this movie for its social issues.
