User Reviews

Seems written on the spot
26 May 2019 | by uberdonkey6See all my reviews

Difficult to believe this film had a proper script. It's a bit like on of those games where people have to use a prop and make jokes up on the spot. Like in one scene, where a guy dies, and they spend 5 minutes (that is Tyler Perry's multiple personalities of 1 dimensional characters) making naff sexual jokes.

I like Tyler Perry films in general, predictable and formulaic and 'feel good'. However, this must be his worst by far. Don't pay money for it, but if someone else is watching it and you're stoned or drunk, maybe it will pass the time as you ridicule the poor dialogue and script.
