Quotes

Brenda Brown: I can pay you back now... for all you did for us. The house, the move, everything.
Harry: You don't get it, do you?
Brenda Brown: Get what?
Harry: I didn't do all of that so you could pay me back.
Brenda Brown: I'm sorry. I'm just so used to being taken advantage of and...
Harry: Yeah, that you don't even know when somebody loves you!
Brenda Brown: Love me?
Harry: Yeah. Tell Mike I said congratulations.
Brenda Brown: Hey, what if I told you I love you too? But I got scared for a second, but I'd rather be scared and with you than be not scared and not have you.
Harry: Why would I scare you?

not what i expected
22 March 2008 | by jules81480See all my reviews

this is the worst tyler perry movie yet! let me note that i am a huge tyler perry fan -- HUGE! but, this movie was stupid and the casting was horrible. sorry tyler -- but, i expected more. good luck on the next one! -- i'll still support it, but i feel like i wasted my money going to see this one..:( ...my favorite movies have definitely been diary of a mad black woman followed by family reunion. why did i get married was decent, but, angela bassett could not carry this movie on her own. it also didn't help that the screenplay was not very good. i didn't see this play, so, i can't say that after seeing this movie i would want to even see it.
