Storyline

A mechanic (Idris Elba) enlists the help of a successful, but lonely, attorney (Gabrielle Union) while trying to win custody of his three daughters from his treacherous ex-wife and her larcenous boyfriend. Along the way, the working relationship between the blue collar dad and his uptown attorney grows into something more. This is a simple, touching story of two people trying to overcome their different backgrounds to find love, a down-on-his-luck man struggling to protect his children from abuse and neglect, and a community looking to purge itself from the criminals terrorizing their neighborhood.

Trivia

Monty's daughters' first names in the movie are their first names in real-life. They are also real-life sisters. See more »

Goofs

Monty tells Julia he is 34 years old. His oldest daughter Sierra is 12 years old. He was charged with rape and sentenced to 8 years of prison at the age of 18 so that means he got out of jail at 26 years old. If that's true, how is Sierra 12 years old? Unless, he was granted conjugal visits with Jennifer and she gave birth to Siera while Monty was in jail. See more »

Perry Has Yet to Fail Me
19 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

Pros: At the end of this movie, I was so salty that there wasn't more. I was entertained throughout and once again, Tyler Perry has created a masterpiece. I love the way he takes on controversial topics and creates believable tales that so many people can relate to. In this movie, we learn about a father who was imprisoned in the past and is now trying to do right for his children and himself. Of course there are obstacles, like his trifling wife who thinks money and the street life make the best men; a thug who likes to ridicule anyone who isn't on the same grind that he is; child custody; an ill mother; and an outstandingly snobbish lawyer who he has been hired to drive around to make ends meet outside of his job as a mechanic. When I saw the previews for this movie, I was thinking "Oh my gawd. Gabrielle Union is the lead in ANOTHER movie." I'd grown so tired of seeing her, but I LOVED her in this movie. To all you Union fans, now I understand why y'all love her so much. She was excellent. She brought out so many other sides of her acting that I'd never seen before (ex. vulnerability, elitism, comedy). Her comedic performance had the whole audience (it was packed in that theater) holding their sides in laughter. I never knew she could be so funny. The lead male character was so believable in his role to the point where I was wondering did he really live this life. I also love how the casting directors picked REAL people to be the extras; people you see everyday in church, walking down the street, living in the neighborhood, etc. I was also impressed with Tyra's friend, who plays the mother of Monty's children. I knew she was a good acting coach, but I didn't know she was this good of an actress! I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and look forward to many more. Perry hasn't failed me yet, and I doubt he could.

Cons: The guy who played the main thug was not very good at it. He just looked like a grown, educated man trying to look hard. I wish they would've picked someone more believable to play his part. He looked more like he should've been the lawyer who was trying to put him in jail than the actual drug dealer.
