Helen (Kimberly Elise) is completely satisfied with her life. But the night before her 18th anniversary, her husband kicks her out of their home and replaces her with his mistress, calling Helen’s marriage — and her whole life — into question. Seeking shelter with her grandmother Madea (Tyler Perry, who wrote the script based on his hit play), Helen tries to put the pieces back together. But does her new life include a new man (Shemar Moore)?
The side of the film with Elise's story is quite wonderful, due to her beautifully realized performance. The other half? Go. To. Hell.
