Tyler Perry is smart, his heart is always in the right place, and he knows how to tell a story.
Really handsome film with some moments but also a little too much dead space. Long ago I learned to leave out the parts that people skim. A lot of movie makers haven't.
Maybe the title should've been Lots Of Pain, No Gain. A comedy with very little heart. Michael Bay could have any movie green lit–why this one?
Very good acting from Matthew McConaughey et al., but the story telling is, well, slower than mud.
