When you want to just laugh without any type of storyline content, then this is the type of movie you go to see. The first film in this franchise was funnier as this one struggled with the laughs. Towards the end, it was laughable because it wasn’t funny. A little bit of an end credit scene.
Now if you don’t want to see an “ignorant” comedy, then skip this one. I knew this film would seek to get laughs with no regrets. Overall, it’s quite funny simply said (especially if you’re a fan of ‘The Purge’ movies).
3 stars out of 5 (rated simply on comedy)

This movie has the potential to be a sequel and a first-ever trilogy (of the same title) for Tyler Perry yet he drops the ball in his writing and directing. The storyline is mediocre and needed more development especially for seasoned actress, Nia Long who co-stars in the film (along with her son Massai Z. Dorsey who portrays her son in the movie). Cocoa Brown and Terry Crew’s characters give us the comedy when it’s needed. There’s a poignant scene in the film that I loved…having a support team/girlfriends/social club to have your back in the good and the bad. No matter how strong a woman is, there are times when she needs to “hear” this from her friends. I would like to see a sequel to this title with a better storyline. I also thought there were too many long pauses in the movie that reminded me of Tyler’s ‘Haves/Have Not’ soap-opera drama series (which I do like).
(a generous) 3 Stars out of 5
