In the scene when Chuck is typing, studying a case for his friend Joshua, the laptop should be on. He is using a MacBook Pro. When MacBook Pros are on, the Apple logo on the back of the notebook would be illuminated white. Thus since the logo isn't lit, the computer is off. See more »
What you gonna do? Beat me with your Bible every five minutes like my Grandma did?
First of all I don't know your Grandma, and second of all I don't carry a Bible, it's at home on my mantel.

Possibly the most touching film ever made about a black guy in a fatsuit.
Tyler Perry has really outdone himself this time, making the deep artistic statement "I'm black, and I have a fatsuit." Sure, this statement has been made before by Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, and others, but Perry adds a certain panache to the blackness and the fat suit that makes this more than just a movie about a black guy in a fat suit: it is THE movie about a black guy in a fat suit.
There may be other movies out there which you are tempted to see: "Slumdog Millionaire" may have won several acadmey awards, but where's the black guy in the fatsuit? How is that a movie? Tyler Perry continues to push the boundaries of artistic excellence with drag AND a fat suit, and we can only hope some day he decides to throw bad accents and white face into the mix.
