User Reviews

Don't waste your money like I did

This was unarguably the absolute worst movie I've ever seen in theaters. Literally it was so bad, that for the first time ever I had to leave before the film was even close to being over (I left about 15 minutes in actually). The "jokes", if you can even call them that, were so terrible. They were poorly timed, poorly delivered, and overdone (like material that would have been expected about 15 years ago in a pg-13 B film that went straight to video). Actually pretty much all of the characters and situations in the film were so absolutely asinine and poorly done. Tyler Perry actually needs to stop making things, this was just so left field and obviously no real effort was put into making this film tolerable, let alone funny. If I could give this a 0 Rating I absolutely would.
