Tyler Perry does for Tiffany Haddish what Irving Thalberg did for the Marx Brothers: he gives her a vehicle for her prodigious comic talent, then weighs it down with unfunny supporting performers and an unnecessary melodramatic subplot. Haddish plays a recently released convict who moves in with her sister (Tika Sumpter), a straitlaced advertising executive who’s being wooed by a stranger she met online but hasn’t seen in person. The sister gets Haddish a job at a coffee shop, and though the ex-con manages to better herself, she can’t help acting out inappropriately, especially when her sister’s paramour turns out to be a scam artist. The movie is bad in all the ways Perry’s movies are usually bad—it’s haphazardly paced, riddled with plot holes, and thuddingly overstated in its moralizing—but that doesn’t matter whenever Haddish is onscreen. Her line readings are uproarious, and they convey a disarming, street-smart intelligence.
