If you’ve seen more than one of Tyler Perry’s movies, whether he’s portraying Madea, a regular character, or even if he isn’t in it at all, then you know you’re set to be on an emotional roller coaster ride for a couple hours. If you’ve never seen one of these delightful movies, then make sure to go to the theater armed with a purse—or pocket—full of tissues, because you’ll either laugh until tears come pouring down your cheeks, or you’ll cry until your sinuses are so stuffy, you’ll need Uncle Joe’s oxygen tank to help you breathe (just an inside joke for those who know).

In this movie, the wonderfully talented Taraji P. Henson portrays a woman who is on the path to self-destruction. She’s a singer in a bar whose boyfriend is a married man that pays all her bills. She gets drunk every night, and sleeps all day. One day, she answers her door to find Madea (Tyler Perry) standing there with her niece and two nephews. They belonged to her deceased sister, and her mother was raising them. But now her mother is missing, and the responsibility for these kids falls to her; a responsibility she wants no part of. Nor does she have room in her life for them. And then a handsome stranger comes to town, and teaches her that she must love herself before she can love anyone else. Gladys Knight, Mary J. Blige, Adam Rodriguez, and Pastor Marvin Winans also star.

At the time of this writing, the movie has already been in theaters a couple weeks, and may be gone by the time you get to read this review. I hope not, but if so, please, please, rent or buy the DVD when it is released.
