    I found this film to be a little uneven because there are a lot of laughs coming from Tyler Perry's performances as Madea and her hubby Joe, and their son Brian, but the main 2 subplots are so filled with either stark domestic violence, or a too-good-to-be-true romance compounded by self-doubt, and both storylines are filled with characters that border on being a little too 2-dimensional for its good. That being said, it's worth watching, and there's an impassioned plea to black men and women, with little subtlety, to stop the cycle of broken homes in order to enhance the meaning of family and provide the strong foundation for their futures.

    I give it 2.75 stars, or a grade of B-.
