We gave it a B-

A bad movie so over-the-top that at moments it’s almost good. Tyler Perry’s gonzo soap opera, in which Helen (Kimberly Elise), a saintly housewife, gets kicked out of her mansion and seeks revenge on her rat-bastard husband (she also finds love with a guy who could be a hip-hop Ken doll), is presented as a passion play for black women.
