… BECAUSE WE COMPLETE EACH OTHER’S SENTENCES.
Four couples gather in a Colorado ski lodge; they’ve known each other since college and their marriages are going through rough patches. Tyler Perry dumped one of his most tiresome creations, Madea (albeit not his preachy sentimentality), for this portrayal of eight people who have successful careers but lead far more troubled private lives. Those expecting the usual Perry fare might be surprised to learn that this movie is pretty entertaining, true to life and has decent performances. Still, in the end clichés and shallowness dominate.
