Wesley Deeds has spent his entire life letting people tell him what he has to do, not once living for himself, that is until he meets Lindsay. A single mother, struggling to make ends meet, who loses everything even her daughter to social workers. Each struggles with their own problems, until they meet each other.
I had high expectation for this movie, like usual Tyler Perry brings another side of the medal of black parents forcing their dreams on their child, despite wanting the best for their children not realising, that they living an happy life. Tyler also brings the cruel reality of a lot of single mother living in United states, living in shelters, getting raped in shelters, having to hide your child in a closet so she can sleep and the social worker taking the kids away despite the mom doing her best. I do believe the movie is a bit too long, I totally understand, that the production company wanted the viewers to settle in, and get a full view of the struggle of each characters but I believe It could have been shorter. With so many complaining that Tyler always portrays the black community in a negative light, they will be please that “this” time, the black man is actually a successful black man and attempts to stay on top with his company, even shedding lights on the stereotype that any man on top had to be white. Gabrielle Union, like usual brings the best, playing the good fiance who doesn’t want the same thing as her future husband. For once, they don’t portrait the woman as the one pushing the babies on the man. Overall, I enjoyed the movie, the romance was light, nothing over the top, If only most people had that type of chance. If you’re the emotional type, bring your tissue, you will need it.
