The look into the lives of four couples, all best friends from college, who vacation together annually. This year, however, when the group learns of one couple's infidelity, it causes them to re-evaluate their own marriages, as secrets are unexpectedly revealed during a long weekend in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Suddenly, they are asking themselves, 'why did I get married? Why did I choose this person?'"
Comedy Drama - This is a relationship comedy/drama aimed at the urban market, but it
has appeal to women and couples of any demographic. Fans of Tyler
Perry's previous work will definitely enjoy, but this film also has
wider appeal than his other films and potential to cross beyond his
normal audience. This is not a starring vehicle for either Perry or
Janet Jackson but an ensemble piece, and Perry's signature Madea
character is not featured.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 223 moviegoers:FANTASTIC REVIEWS! These reviews are some of the highest I've ever seen. It's extremely rare for all ages, especially adults, to give so many reviews of "Fantastic." THIS IS A MOVIE NOT TO BE MISSED! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
When these eight married college friends reunite for their annual retreat in the snowcapped mountains of Colorado, they come expecting fun and relaxation, but get a completely unexpected surprise. Career-drive Dianne (SHARON LEAL) and her supportive, but fed-up husband, Terry (TYLER PERRY), are joined by popular psychologist and best-selling author Patricia (JANET JACKSON) and her architect husband Gavin, (MALIK YOBA), who share a secret tragedy that finally comes to light, while Angela (TASHA SMITH) and Marcus (MICHAEL JAI WHITE) argue constantly, but remain in love. Also in attendance is their good friend Sheila, (JILL SCOTT) a sweet woman with a distorted self-image stemming from weight issues that are exacerbated by her emotionally abusive and philandering husband, Mike (RICHARD T. JONES).
Unlike any other year, this trip changes the dynamic of the group with two new additions: Sheila's supposed girlfriend, Trina (DENISE BOUTTE), who is secretly sleeping with her husband; and Troy (LAMMAN RUCKER), an ex-Wall Street stockbroker who has put his career on hold to care for an ailing father.
Nothing could create more drama then placing these ten people in a secluded cabin for a long weekend with all of the dirty laundry waiting to come out.
