In this over-the-top 2008 melodrama, a family man on Chicago's south side (Robert Townsend) struggles to hold his family together after his wife (Angela Bassett) is killed in a car accident. The father is so distraught that he can't reach out to his two sons—an upstanding college grad who suddenly turns alcoholic and a high schooler who falls under the sway of a neighborhood thug. Luckily the dad's sister (Victoria Rowell) steps up just in time to dispense some motherly affection and wisdom. Director Carl Seaton and writer Michelle Amor just can't take their feet off the gas; the mawkishness could make Tyler Perry blush. 90 min.
