Writer/director/producer Tyler Perry trades in his eccentric crowd-pleasing Madea for two run-of-the-mill personalities from opposite sides of the metaphorical tracks who overcome their stock differences in the name of predictable love. Gabrielle Union stars as a prim-and-proper law-firm partner whose main concern is her self-image. When she meets a convicted rapist now making his way as a garage mechanic, her romantic feelings cause her embarrassment and ridicule from her opinionated Ivy League friends. Nonetheless, the upper-class legal eagle follows her heart and helps the streetwise father win custody of his three daughters from his abusive crack-dealing ex-wife. The grainy cinematography, mediocre talent and overused premise will leave viewers hoping for the return of Madea.
