It won't stick with you for very long, but at the very least you'll enjoy your night out at the cinema. Tiffany Haddish carries every scene she's in and gives the movie some much-needed energy in it's flattest scenes.
You feel like you're the victim of a cruel bait-and-switch, lured into thinking Nobody's Fool would be a crappy but nevertheless entertaining Tiffany Haddish movie, only to have it turn out to be a crappy but nevertheless crappy Tyler Perry movie.
Writer-director Tyler Perry throws all kinds of ideas at us, but he never manages to get over the basic problem at the center of his script: Sumpter's character is shallow and unlikeable, while Haddish's... wears out her welcome in record time.
Ostensibly, this is the tale of someone learning to find beauty and grace in life's imperfections, but the filmmaker consistently gets too distracted by low-hanging jokes to deservedly convince us why that's a commendable goal.
