Ava: Judith, we've being going at this for weeks. Look around this office. What do you see?
Judith: A bunch of women with hair from India?
Ava: Look at me, Judith. What you should see is people in this office care about what they look like. Unlike you. We have over a billion dollars walking in and out of these offices looking for love. We have a standard to uphold. This is not our standard.
Judith: Okay, Ava... I don't have to wear fancy dresses and fancy shoes to prove that I'm qualified to do my job.

I loved it !
9 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie and was happy to see African American actors acting through a 'normal script' dealing with the reality of what can happen in the life of a couple...rather refreshing that it was not an over the top outrageous loud comedy (and I am black by the way). Kim K. was surprisingly OK in this movie. I expected her to suck but she did a decent job. Although it wasn't as though she was playing a really complicated role like the Iron Lady role or the lead role on The Help. Still, she was fine. Overall, I couldn't keep my eyes off the movie Vanessa Williams. It was evident that Vanessa Williams and Brandy were more experienced as actors among the cast but still, I was not disappointed in the performance of the other cast members. Well done Tyler Perry.
