Comedy drama
Tyler Perry’s fourth movie in two years is one of his better films, but that doesn’t mean it’s any good. Taraji P. Henson stars as April, a nightclub singer forced to look after her niece and nephews after they try to rob Madea (Perry). Henson is a top-flight actress, but she is working with a typically lame Perry script here. Still, the movie does co-star Gladys Knight and Mary J. Blige, and, thankfully, Perry offers them multiple chances to sing. If you are a Madea fan, you will be disappointed. The character has a couple of good moments early in the film, but disappears for most of the second half. Perry is a well-meaning filmmaker, but his stuff has a bad sitcom quality to it. Perhaps he should take a little time in between flicks and shoot for quality instead of quantity. Considering the big box-office takes for his movies, that probably won’t happen.
