This movie was great. I felt bad about the young kids fatal swimming accident. I really felt for the mother up until she made a move on Morris Chestnut. It was really encouraging to see him turn down her advances though. I have to say that it is refreshing to see a movie without any nudity. This is one the whole family can enjoy.

Unfortunately, for those who do not subscribe to the notion that God's dust smooths a marriage's rough patches, but rather hard work by people do, the message rings hollow. Full Review

The New York Times
Mr. Duke's filmmaking is functional at best, and the extreme shifts in emotional tone -- especially a late and disastrous swerve into tragedy -- are handled clumsily in Brian Bird's script. Yet Not Easily Broken is not easily dismissed. For one thing, the cast is excellent, and for another, its intentions are serious and generous. Full Review

Washington Post
Exerts an unmistakable appeal, thanks to an absorbing story and fine performances from Morris Chestnut and Taraji P. Henson. Full Review

Entertainment Weekly
Laughter through tears is director Bill Duke's M.O., and he hits the bull's-eye of that modest target. Full Review
