User Reviews

Very stereotypical but funnier than expected
30 October 2016 | by antoniokowatschSee all my reviews

As expected this movie was based on various stereotypes of the black community. After all Tyler Perry's entire career is based on the exploitation of racial stereotypes. While I don't condone that I have to say that the movie was funnier than expected. It definitely had its moments.

As far as I can tell most people watched this movie mainly because one of the protagonists is a famous Youtube personality (Yousef Erakat). I personally am not too fond of his Youtube videos but his acting performance was solid. Gotta give it to him.

Final verdict: Not quite re-watchable but it's a solid comedy.
