About the Movie

Producers T. D. Jakes and Tracey E. Edmonds invite you to the marriage of Sabrina Watson (Paula Patton, Precious ) and Jason Taylor (Laz Alonso, Fast & Furious), who just might be the perfect couple. Unfortunately, their families are a perfect recipe for disaster. Mrs. Watson (Angela Bassett) has an upper-crust sensibility that matches her family’s Martha’s Vineyard estate, where Jason’s straight-out-of-Brooklyn mom (Loretta Devine) seems utterly out of place. When the families gather for Jason and Sabrina’s wedding, it becomes clear that each side has its traditions... and its secrets. When uptown meets downtown, the truth comes out – and only one question remains. Will this couple endure the hysterical and harrowing trials of love and finally jump the broom?

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Instead of being a wild mixture of tones, it has very little tone at all, and moments of dramatic or comic intensity erupt awkwardly and then fizzle out. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, May 6, 2011

Fresh: The humor arises naturally from situations, but the story teeters into melodrama. Still, watching impressive actors like Bassett and Devine face off is a highlight. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, May 5, 2011

Rotten: Every wedding comedy hinges on creating threats to the union, of course, but Hunter and Gibbs pile on half a dozen potentially ruinous scenarios and subplots where one or two would have been sufficient. – Ian Buckwalter, NPR, May 6, 2011

Fresh: A picture that gave me considerable satisfaction, partly because it wears its themes of trust and belief and faith lightly and easily, while taking them seriously. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, May 5, 2011

Great Movie

I thought the move was very funny. Yes, the movie has a lesson in it but it still worth a purchase. I saw it in theaters and will purchase the movie rather than rent it because it's worth the money.
