Storyline

Dr. Patricia Agnew, a psychologist, has written a best seller about marriage: hers and those of three other couples who together take a week's vacation each year to ask themselves, "Why did I get married?" It's time for one of those weeks, and all four relationships are strained: Patricia and her husband Gavin have the shadow of grief between them; Terry believes that Diane has abandoned him for her work; Angela, who's built a successful business, belittles her husband Marcus, who works for her; Mike is cruel to Sheila, his religious, overweight wife. During the week, each person's secret comes out. Will these marriages survive? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Two thumbs up for Tyler
28 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As far as relationships go, Tyler Perry, hit on every aspect of what could possibly happen in the typical relationship from infidelity to grieving over a child. It has it's moments where you are cracking up from the comments that one of the more colorful characters makes, but it makes you think of what damaging things go on in peoples lives this day in time. It's funny to hear the older crowd preach to you when you were younger and then it all comes to light..."He who is without sin, cast the first stone." People act like they have never done any wrong, and cannot relate. Everyone has a story, and if this is how a young, talented, black man chooses to tell his...then so be it. Somebody will relate. Whether you are black, white, blue, green, yellow or purple you will, at some point in your life, will experience something that someone else has. It is never gender or ethnic neutral. I am glad he has put out movies that not only touch on the black experience, but touch on the overall experience of relationships of family. How we should all come together and help each other out. Family is not what it use to be any more and morales have gone out of the window. I can do nothing, but applaud Tyler in his efforts, as a black man trying to do a positive thing. He is not making violent movies, he is just bringing reality to light. Sugar coating the truth, will not make it better. Facing it and dealing with it...as ugly as it may be is the only resolution. The truth will set you free and leave you with your peace of mind. Much love to Tyler. Keep on, Keeping on. Stay Positive.
