Plot Summary

After Madea (Tyler Perry) catches some children looting her home, she turns them over to their Aunt April (Taraji P. Henson), a nightclub singer who wants nothing to do with her late sister’s kids. But things begin to change when a handyman (Adam Rodriguez) decides to rent a room in her basement. Now nothing will ever be the same as April finds love, faith, family – and herself – in this inspirational romantic comedy featuring performances by Mary J. Blige, Gladys Knight and Marvin L. Winans.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Mr. Perry has his moviemaking machine running smoothly, which is to say somewhat predictably. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: After a summer of phony, pasty rom-coms, do this: See a movie where old-fashioned notions of love, faith, strength, and the possibility of redemption are taken seriously. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: There are absolutely no surprises in store, plot-wise, though Perry's approach has always been to rework familiar narrative conventions in such a way as to reaffirm key values. – Peter Debruge, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Tyler Perry's latest hodgepodge has its moments. – Stephen Farber, Hollywood Reporter, Jul 7, 2010
