Storyline
Dr. Patricia Agnew, a psychologist, has written a best seller about marriage: hers and those of three other couples who together take a week's vacation each year to ask themselves, "Why did I get married?" It's time for one of those weeks, and all four relationships are strained: Patricia and her husband Gavin have the shadow of grief between them; Terry believes that Diane has abandoned him for her work; Angela, who's built a successful business, belittles her husband Marcus, who works for her; Mike is cruel to Sheila, his religious, overweight wife. During the week, each person's secret comes out. Will these marriages survive?

User Review

Why is this rated so low?

Rating: 7/10


Why this film is rated at 3.2 is beyond me. I truly have to believe
that it is racism. Tyler Perry is not my favorite but he is not
untalented either. Instead of showing African Americans as either crack
heads or criminals he is trying to show that African American people
hold important jobs, are educated and struggle with issues just like
white people do. This movie was well written and entertaining, no doubt
about it. It was funny and insightful, showing the ups and downs of
marriage and also showing unconditional Love that has to come with a
successful marriage.I think Tyler Perry is a wonderful example for
African Americans,Strong and spiritual and not afraid to show his Faith
in God in his movies and that is to be applauded. Why is it that you
can't show movies of Faith now days but can show sex, violence and
cursing in Movies with no problem at all? What is this society coming
to? I would really like to know.
