| Basic, but not as bad as rating
First, there are several films that warrant a rating of 2 or less, however, I really don't think this is one of them. With that being said, even if you're a Tyler Perry fan, I don't see how you can give it a 10. The film itself had the basic TP's ingredients from the rest of his films, with a Hollywood ending added. There are some tear jerking moments that tug on the emotional side and there's enough issues sprinkled around that most people could relate to.

I thought the film was okay. Unfortunately, film-making has become a forgotten art. It's not that Tyler Perry films are as bad as the ratings may reflect ( in my opinion), it's just that they are simple and predictable. For the Tyler Perry fans, Mr. Perry's bank account, and lionsgate, that's "all good". You can't argue with the math.
