Amid the shout-downs over adultery, male power, and the agony of coping with a child's death, one performance glistens -- Jill Scott's as the sad, heavyset Sheila, who locates the faith that's the source of love.

None of these flaws will matter much to Perry's devoted audiences, whose support has enabled him to virtually build a media empire.

Despite the improbable ease of pic's genteel psychoanalysis, the characters are thesped with enough depth and emotional investment to make their problems feel legit.

[Perry] makes it easy on us, mostly by letting his cast do what it wants.

In the end, it's easy to answer the question: why don't we care what happens one way or the other?

You don't have to be black to enjoy the film, but you do need a strong desire to watch people work out their issues using pop-psychology and self-help techniques.

Though still a stranger to subtlety, Mr. Perry has learned to balance the obviousness of his setups with characters whose interactions feel genuine.

Stiffly written, didactic, and whiplash-inducing in its tonal shifts.

Perry's comedy will likely never be breezy, and the film drags through its second hour.
