A successful attorney (Gabrielle Union), whose work is the main focus of her life to the extent that she has no time for relationships, cannot help herself when she falls for her driver (Idris Elba). Despite their mismatched professional status, he's a hard-working father who is struggling to keep custody of his three daughters, and protect them from his drug-dealing ex-wife. Also with Louis Gossett Jr., Tasha Smith and Gary Anthony Sturgis. Directed by Tyler Perry. [1:35]

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
