    This movie really caught me off guard. You automatically expect to laugh when Madea is involved, but this one hit home really hard for me. This song in particular got to me. I tried to be a “big girl” and hold it in…didn’t work. My tear ducts had a mind of their on.
    Mr. Perry continues to get better with each project.
    Loved it!!

    Thanks so much! It tugged on my heartstrings, too. I think “Daddy’s Little Girls” is still my favorite (Idris Elba and Gabrielle Union are so terrific together) but this one is close.

      No, Anjelica, it is not. I hope the soundtrack album will be released.
