Storyline

Durell Washington and LeeJohn Jackson are best friends and bumbling petty criminals. When Durell learns that his ex-girlfriend plans to move to another state with their son Durell Jr.--unless they can get her $17,000 to pay off a debt--, Durell and LeeJohn ultimately come up with a desperate scheme to rob their neighborhood church. When the duo fumbles their way through the break-in, they discover someone has beaten them to the punch. In order to get their hands on the money, Durell and LeeJohn are forced to spend the night in the presence of the Lord and his followers--and end up getting a lot more than they bargained for.

If I go back to jail they gonna make me a woman!
29 December 2008 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

The Eagles were thumping the Cowboys and the Jaguars wanted us to watch them lose again instead of letting us see Miami beat the Jets, so I checked out this film knowing that I probably wouldn't like it.

Now, I was totally satisfied watching Malinda Williams (Idlewild, "Soul Food") trying to keep from spilling out of that form fitting outfit she had on for the entire 96 minutes, so it wasn't a total waste.

Other than that, it relied too heavily on stereotypical humor and "Jesus is the answer to all your problems" thinking. Even Jesus doesn't have enough jobs to keep everyone happy, even if they managed to get more than a little education.

But, there is always Malinda to save the day.
