At the beginning when Charles takes Helen home after the party they are in the car arguing. In the majority of the shots, Helen's fur wrap is low on her shoulders with her shoulders and necklace showing. In one shot it is way up around her neck covering everything. Then, it is back to the more revealing position after that. See more »
[upon seeing Orlando staring at her]
I'm just sittin' here, tryin' to think of a way to say this to you.
I'm in love with you.
How do you know that?
I don't know how to explain it to you.
Helen, if I'm away from you for more than an hour, I can't stop thinking about you. I carry you in my spirit. I pray for you more than I pray for myself. I've got it so bad for you I'd... I'd go to the grocery store and buy your feminine products, I swear I would.

This movie is a great introduction to Tyler Perry and his crazy characters. The characters that appear in the movie are based from stage plays written, directed, and produced by Tyler Perry (Mabel "Madea" Simmons). I won't go into great detail about the plot of the movie, but the issues and themes covered touch all races, nationalities, religions, and creeds. Betrayal, forgiveness, trust, and longing for something greater than ourselves are all themes touched on in this movie. I found it very uplifting. Tyler Perry is very funny as Madea, saying the things we wish we could say or do in life's various situations. Kimberly Elise was great as Helen, and although I am not the biggest fan of Shamar Moore, he did a very good job as Orlando.
