Loved It!
9 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was truly touching! I saw so much that could be learned regarding marriage and family. The leading characters really played their parts well. I often felt bad for Morris's character because "Clarice" was a trip. :) I'm thankful for movies like these and would love to see more. My eyes welled up at different parts and the story line was not as predictable as I thought it was going to be. I recommend this movie for any and everybody that want to see a real picture of marriage and how different things can come in and douse whatever flame a married couple once had. Thank you TD Jakes for making such a hearty movie. I look forward to seeing more like these!
