Duration: 2 Hours

(2011) Faith-tinged family comedy about the lead-up to a Martha’s Vineyard wedding between a postal worker’s (Loretta Devine) son (Laz Alonso) and the daughter (Paula Patton) of a wealthy couple (Angela Bassett and Brian Stokes Mitchell). Director Salim Akil and screenwriters Elizabeth Hunter and Arlene Gibbs embrace all the familiar conventions of upscale vs. downscale. But they make poor use of a clergyman (played by real-life Bishop T.D. Jakes) who offers useful advice early on but is absent when the families have to deal with serious issues. Mature themes; fleeting, mild sexual banter; and a couple of references to masturbation. (A-III --  adults) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned) Lifetime (cable)
