So goooood!!! Great messages and themes about love, compassion and understanding, family, choice, healing from wounds/traumas/samskaras, and the ability and willingness to know when it's time to make a big change. AMAZING singing, and fantastic acting, especially by Taraji Henson (lead character, April) and Hope Wilson (Jennifer, her 16-year-old niece). I'm very surprised this movie only has 4.3 on imdb---it should be much higher. Perhaps the beginning is hard for some to get through if they don't understand Tyler Perry's humor and may be averse to the "attitudes," but I thought it had a good balance of comedy peppered throughout the deeper aspects, also with inspiring and heartwarming moments. Absolutely loved it!
