I went to see this movie on Sunday. I went in thinking ok another Tyler Perry saga … Woman who was burned by men, picks herself back up and then goes off happily ever after. Even though this film followed the same script it was slightly different. Taraji P. Henson did an excellent job as her character- a nightclub singer who rarely sees the light of day, an alcoholic, a woman heavily involved with a married man (Brian White) who pays all her bills.. I don’t want to give away the movie but Brian J. White was very convincing in his role. Madea has only a small role as comic relief in this melodrama. Though some of the scenes did not smoothly transition from one to the next the film was good. It is understood in Perry’s movies, everybody needs a supportive and loving spouse, a family, and a healthy church life. Otherwise, you might end up dead, or worse yet, like Madea!
