Taraji P. Henson,
A mechanic (Elba) enlists the help of a successful-but-lonely attorney (Union) while trying to wrest custody of his three daughters from his treacherous ex-wife and her larcenous boy friend. Along the way, the working relationship between the blue collar dad and his uptown attorney grows into something more. This is a simple, touching story of two people trying to overcome their different backgrounds to find love, a down-on-his-luck man struggling to protect his children from abuse and neglect, and a community looking to purge itself from the criminals terrorizing their neighborhood.

Monty's daughters' first names in the movie are their first names in real life. They are also actual sisters. See more »
When Monty and Julia arrive at the club, they appear to be driving down (and parking on) on a one-way street, as the cars are all parked in the same direction that Monty's car was traveling. However, the four-lane road they are on has a double-yellow line in the middle, indicating a two-way street. Also, in the wide shot as the car comes to a stop, there are signal lights and street identification signs placed in a manner where the flow of traffic on this "one-way street" would not be able to see them unless they were traveling in the opposite direction.

I saw this film recently at the Black Film Maker International Film
Festival here in London.
Not at all like Perry's previous films which have both been premiered
at the festival in the last few years. Instead of broad Christian
Cross-Dressing Gun Totting Comedy, what we have here is a gentle
romantic drama with a smattering of jokes here and there.
At got to say it wasn't to bad though I have to admit I preferred the
Meadea films. The performances were OK especially the leading actors
Union & Elba. The story is a bit hackneyed but I guess that's the cynic
in me. You kind of knew exactly how the film was going to end from the
open credits. The audience I saw it with loved it.
That got me thinking why can't you see Perry's work in the UK other
than at the BFM Film Festival. Why not release the films on DVD, any
visit to Dalston/Brixton/Harlesden in London will tell you that's
there's a great illicit trade in Perry's films.
Anyway, if you like a undemanding and somewhat unoriginal romantic
drama this is just the thing for you.
