Quotes

Kim: Mrs. Murphy, if I... if I may, our children, no matter what we think, they... they will live their own lives. The world is changing.
Eileen: Not that much!
Kim: It is changing and that is a good thing. Every generation sees a little less division and a little more open minds and open hearts. I think we should be happy and proud that our kids... our children see people as people.

Awful!
8 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

I am editing and re-posting my review of this terrible, terrible movie here because some delicate-as-a-flower troll reported my last one as "abuse" for some reason and I don't want the hassle of having to respond to IMDb every time they start to cry because my dislike of this stinker of a movie hurts their precious little feelings. That said, this movie really is garbage! The writing is terrible (if there even was any), the acting is somehow even worse, and Tyler Perry is so annoying, desperate and hammy that he makes me never want to see another movie again in my life! He has to be the worst writer-performer I've ever seen in a "real" Hollywood movie. Every single joke was awful and I didn't smile a single time. I actually felt angry when it ended because I forced myself to sit through the entire thing, hoping it would get better, when it never did. Tyler Perry owes me an hour and a half of my life back! I don't see why you would report me for my review, which contained no swearing or anything offensive. It simply featured me saying how bad I thought this movie was in colourful and entertaining ways.

And guess what? This movie really is that bad, so why object to my review? Have you not read any of the other reviews of this tragedy of a film here or in any of the newspapers across the country? I hate to tell you but if you read any of the message boards about film that I have visited, the way people are talking about this (and every single other Tyler Perry movie) there would make your head spin until you vomit all over yourself.

This movie is so awful that I feel like I want to rip off my own face and pull my eyes out so that I can't be forced to ever see it again and then take my eyes and shove them as far as I can inside my ears so that I can't ever hear the awful movie again or any other piece of garbage Medea movie or any of this man's awful movies at all. Then I feel like I will set those eyes and ears on fire to make sure they can't ever be put back then I'll jump off a building while eating eat gallons of poison and right before I hit the ground head first I feel like I will fire both barrels of a twelve gauge shotgun in my mouth up through my head to blow it right off. That is what I feel like doing whenever I think of this awful awful awful awful movie.
