Romantic comedy
Though it was written and directed by Tyler Perry, it starts out bearing little resemblance to a Tyler Perry film. Instead of a clumsy melodrama, it’s a clumsy raunchy comedy about a sophisticated New York ad agent, Danica (Tika Sumpter), having to take in her trashy, mouthy, sexually voracious sister, Tanya (Tiffany Haddish), newly released from prison. Danica is long-distance dating a man she’s never met; Tanya thinks she’s being catfished, and investigates. She thinks Danica ought to be dating Frank (Omari Hardwick), the sensitive hunk who runs Danica’s regular coffee-shop haunt, and is clearly in love with her. But Danica has this “Charlie” guy, if he’s real—and besides, Frank has been to jail, which disqualifies him in Danica’s eyes. The plot is full of inane contrivances and the dialogue is awkwardly written, but Haddish is hilarious and very much in her element. At about the hour mark, the story reaches the point where it should be resolving and wrapping up—and that’s when the Tyler Perry we know shows up to turn the remaining 45 minutes (ugh) into an exasperating soap opera for dum-dums. The sisters have a petty falling-out, Danica dithers tediously about Frank, and it drags on forever.
