  • Though he plays two other roles, Perry only really cuts loose when he dons Madea's housecoat, turning her into a devilishly funny voice of reason. Likewise, the movie tenses up when she's offscreen, becoming the sort of moralistic soap opera we've seen from Perry before. show more

  • For all its staleness, the melodramatic main story does contain enough good acting and resonant scenes. show more

  • If the movie is a mess, it's a purposeful mess, cannily, if not artfully, pushing all the right buttons to ensure Perry will be back for another round. show more

    I went in thinking that it was going to be a fun comedy but it was nothing but another Tyler Perry drama about a guy trying to help a hooker.Madea going to jail became nothing but a subplot.There were a few funny moments but they are few and far between.
