Helen McCarter would seem to have it all. She's married to Charles who is one of Atlanta's most successful attorneys. But despite having wealth and prestige, things are not as they seem in the McCarter home. On the evening of their anniversary, Charles drops a bombshell on Helen - he's divorcing her for another woman. Thrown out of the house with nowhere to go, Helen moves in with her grandmother Madea, a sassy woman with no shortage of opinions and a gun that she's not afraid to use. As Madea helps Helen get back on her feet emotionally, she meets Orlando, a nice and handsome man who is obviously attracted to her. But after her experiences with Charles, Helen isn't sure if she's ready to trust a man again.

I believe this to be an excellent film. It well displays the environment in which the film was made should one notice the church influence.

Tyler Perry's first TRANSSEXUAL train wreck of a so-called comedy movie based on a play period!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The humiliation the main character is willing to put up with as the trophy wife of a callous lawyer is real, and you feel for her struggle to stop emotionally caring for her husband. Her bitterness is understandable, but it lasts so long that it makes her a bit unlikable. It's hard to understand what the romantic lead sees in her, aside from her appearance. But otherwise, a fun and moving Tyler Perry movie.
