Sweet and Heartwarming Story

I really enjoyed this movie. It was funny, provided a few tears, and projected the real struggles single mothers have to deal with. It is not easy for single mothers to raise children, especially when they do not receive any financial or emotional support from the fathers....and sometimes, not from family members either. The movie pointed out these issues.

This movie showed some of the pain single mothers go through without being too harsh. The movie added jokes and silliness to soften some of the drama within the movie. I found this to be a delightful movie.

I guess the reason some of the reviewers gave the movie such low ratings was because they may have felt it was the typical Tyler Perry movie....Black church, drugs, abused women, and pain. No, this movie was nothing of the kind.

Again, a very delightful movie. Kudos to Tyler Perry.
