Storyline

After years of disagreeing on what true happiness, success, and love really are, Dave and Clarice Johnson have finally reached a breaking point in their marriage. When Clarice is hurt in a car accident, the obvious truth that more than just her injuries need immediate attention is exposed. Their odds of making it worsen as Clarice begins to see a physical therapist, and Dave develops a friendship with Julie and her teenage son Bryson. The acceptance and comfort he finds in them stirs his longing for a family and a passionate partner. As temptation tugs at Dave and Clarice pulls farther away, they must confront whether their vows are or are NOT EASILY BROKEN. Written by Anonymous

Great movie
17 January 2009 | by busonly4See all my reviews

I wanted support the movie because I am a big fan of T.D. Jakes' works. I went with a sibling who was also skeptical about the film because of the lack of buzz around it. To sum up our experience, we were SO GLAD that we went to view it last night. We thoroughly enjoyed the film as did the rest of the audience. We are still talking about it.

Morris Chestnut and Taraji Henson did a great job with their roles. I highly recommend the movie for couples, singles, divorcées, and etc. as the movie makes points about relationships that everyone can relate to on some level - yet without beating you over the head.

Do not go by the reviews, go and see this movie for yourself - you will not be disappointed!
