3.9???!! SERIOUSLY people this movie is at least an 8 or 9 even if you don't like these kind of movies. It's a solid 10 for me. This movie is plain and simply BOMB with a capital B. As in freaking good. I always end up underestimating how good Perry's movies are. This one had some amazing performances (Alfre Woodard-WOW lady!) and if you have any of the following: in-laws, spouse, family problems, money issues--then this movie will lift you up, inspire you, and leave you feeling like life is gonna be okay. WATCH IT!!!
If you are like me, you may have seen a Perry movie in the past, loved the heck out of it, and then forgot all about how great it was. Maybe you even cringe a bit when you see another Perry movie because you think "oh wow just how many times can you pull off this blatant kind of movie". Tonight, I hit play with hesitation on the tivoed "The Family that Preys" with my wife. It was so good I Facebooked it and then actually SIGNED UP for IMDb for this after I saw how low the rating was. 3.9?!? NO WAY! 10 baby!
