Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars

Love can transcend class lines; in Tyler Perry’s universe, it also defies all rules of the legal system—and logic. While Gabrielle Union’s buppie lawyer falls for Idris Elba’s mechanic trying to do right by his daughters, Perry gilds the lily with a dizzying amount of court scenes, a “say huh?” visit to a hospital and a moment of revenge so crazy, I thought for sure it was a dream sequence. The man behind Madea’s melodrama may be unhinged, but at least his is a message of love; misanthropes and misogynists still have Norbit. (Now playing; Click here for venues.) — Melissa Anderson
