About the film:
When Madea, America's favorite pistol-packing grandma, catches sixteen-year-old Jennifer and her two younger brothers looting her home, she decides to take matters into her own hands and delivers the young delinquents to the only relative they have: their aunt April. A heavy-drinking nightclub singer who lives off of Raymond, her married boyfriend, April wants nothing to do with the kids. But her attitude begins to change when Sandino, a handsome Mexican immigrant looking for work, moves into April's basement room. Making amends for his own troubled past, Sandino challenges April to open her heart. And April soon realizes she must make the biggest choice of her life: between her old ways with Raymond and the new possibilities of family, faith…and even true love.
Rated PG-13 for mature thematic material involving a sexual assault on a minor, violence, drug references and smoking.

    Subject: name of actress in the scene with Blair Underwood in a boardromm setting discussing the fate of her daughter?

    my wife and I are making a bet on the name of the actress in the scene with Blair Blairwood. He says that it was Angela Bassett and I am not sure of the actresses name but I am sure that it was not Angela. I have not seen the movie just that one scene. I don't even know the name of the movie,

    maybe that's what america needs is morals. Take look at the history of america, america was suppose to be founded on morals after it was stolen. Talk about double standards. Let tyler do his thang u don't like it, do something about it, but if you can't what does it matter anyway he's paid. And another thing advertising is everything. (Business 101)

    Paris Hilton never made a good movie or has never done anything positive for people. I hope he keep making movie that make people feel good.
